SOURCE: no high-beam headlights

It may not be the switch; most hi-lo changes are via relay to prevent the higher currents from flowing through light-duty switches.

Locate the relay cluster (it might be near or with the fuses) and if they aren't marked, pull wach one of them and plug back in several times to wipe possible corrosion from the blade contacts.

If they are marked, look to see if the same relay is used elsewhere (part number should be visible) and swap them temporarily to see if the relay is at fault.

Some vehicles will use separate relays for hi-lo beams and another for flashing since that often turns on both beams momentarily.

This will involve removal of your steering wheel and a couple of special tools, a steering wheel puller and a steering wheel lock ring compressor. If you have these are can rig your on, remove ground and wait ten minutes so the airbag system capacitor has time to discharge. Remove drivers air bag and detach wiring, remove steering wheel nut and notice align marks on wheel and steering wheel shaft and remember them.

SOURCE: on 2003 accent high beams don't work, low beams

On the 03 Accent, there is only one relay which supplies power to both circuits. The 'distribution' of power is controled by the multi-function switch (turn signal switch).
As you can see in this wiring schematic/diagram.

02 Buick century the passenger low headlight not working but high beam is. I checked fuses inside the car what others things can I check.


There should be a left and right fuse and a relay involved.
The lights get power from the fuses, and the headlight switch and dimmer switch provide the ground circuit. So if you check the headlight plug with a meter you should have power and ground for high and low beam.

My low beams don't work but all other lights do in


My first thought would be the dimmer switch. Have you checked for power in and out of the switch on the low beam setting ?

Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights


The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

I cannot figure out why my headlights(lowbeams) do not come on. My high beams do work.


This may sound kind of silly but usually the main reason I find that both low beams don't come on is that they are both burned out. The second reason is usually a faulty dimmer switch. Both the high and low beams get power through the same circuit breaker so if the highs are working then you know the breaker is good. I'd start by making sure both bulbs are good then test the dimmer switch next.
