Check the headlight relay and the combination switch. If there is even a flicker of lowbeams when you activate the dimmer switch, it is probably bad. There is also a rare possibility both bulbs have the lowbeam filiment burned out. Try replacing one.

Test the headlight switch, that is most common cause on escorts of no headlights.

97 Jeep Wrangler 4 cyl. Turn signals, headlights, parking lights, tail and brake lights, and instrument panel are all out. Only interior light above brake pedal is working. Engine will start.


i think you ment IP cluster backlights dead not warning ligts
that is real the huge parking light structures.
a blown fuse. it is, why not test them ? first.

either cab fuse or the engine bay fuse box.
12vdc on both sides of fuse, is a good fuse, key on.
100% accurate test. no guessing. ever with voltmeter.
(rare exceptions a car with a ground fuse, very rare)
so lets do this the hard way, no fuse tests......

but hark the fsm is free. why not just look at the road map er, schematic, (wiring diagrams)
lets do HL , they are hot all the time, keys lost .

your car is a TJ so having a TJ book is spiffy , no? KEEN?
lets do that. TJ wiring
click TJ

now click wiring, following me?
posted this 100 times,., here.

my guess is parks are dead High beams good, right, ?????
yes then go to JUMP 1.
HL dead highs and low beam? parks out.(aka TAIL)
PDF page # 92
fuse PDC #17 blown? kills cluster dead too
JUMP1: parks dead.
had lamps is fuse #1, jb (page 134 pdf)
then PDC fuse 4 and 10 (lows and highs)

PDC is engine bay box.
JB is cab box.

so my guess (hard way)
fuse 10 and CB 24 was blown. kills high/low beams
Fues1 and 4 only parks. and cluster dimmer feed.

page 134 makes all this childs play with a meter.
volt meter.

Turn signals and high beams


First check around all the lights (front, rear, headlight, turn signal, parking, fog, etc..) for loose, broken, or bare wires, and/or loose , broken, or bad connectors. Any of these could cause the lighting to short. If everything is in good working order, then the problem will most likely lie with switch inside the column (the lever).

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

First of all are your headlights a double filament type headlight? If yes then I would suspect that a power wire to the high beams is broken or shorted. If your high beams are a separate set of lights from your regulars running lights then either the high beams headlights are missing. or has a broken power wire or shorted or...You could check the fuse box under your dash and under the hood of the car to see if you have a fuse for the high beam lights.

Headlights both went out last night. High beams


There is a relay that controls the headlights, volvo calls it a step relay. You will have to check that power is getting to this relay. If not, check all fuses and wiring. If power supply checks out ok, you may have to replace the relay. Let me know if you need any more info or a wiring diagram.

My headlights on my 2004 chevy impala do not work. I have changed all four bulbs, the light switch, checked all fuses and still nothing. My parking lights work as well as my tail lights and running lights....


I had the same exact problem as you. For some reason the high beam / low beam switch gets stuck in no-mans land. Turn it on and off a couple times and this should help.
