SOURCE: bright lights wont click back off

THE PROBLM IS THE SWITCH ITS'SELF.YOU NEED A NEW ONE.IF YOU HAVE TO USE THE TRUCK FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME BEFORE YOU CAN GET A SWITCH YOU CAN JUST CHANGE THE WIREING IN THE PLUG TO MAKE THE TRUCK LOW BEAM ONLY INSTEAD OF HIGH BEAM ONLY.FIND THE WIRE THAT COMES LIVE WITH YOUR SWITCH IN THE HEADLIGHT PLUG AND USEINGING A VERY SMALL FLAT SCREWDRIVER INSERTED FROM THE REAR ,IT WILL UNANCHOR.THEN JUST SWAP IT SIDE TO SIDE.

SOURCE: how to remove high beam switch from 1994 silverado

The headlight dimmer switch is located about 1/2 way down the steering column. it is attached with 2 screws and is adjusted up against a rod that goes up and into the steering wheel housing. Tip. take a large plastic wire tie and secure the rod before removeing the switch so the rod stays in place when the switch is removed. after installing and adjusting the new switch just cut the wire tie and discard.
good luck. P.S. the ignition switch is in the same location. its the switch with only one black connector going to it.

See if the fuel pump is working. Turn the key on and listen by the gas tank if you hear the pump working. Mine was still working but didn't have enough pressure to keep the truck running. You might want to test the fuel pressure.

I have a 2001 Silverado. When the high beams are switched on, the low beams go off and frankly the road is dark but the trees look good! Is this correct or do I have a faulty switch on my steering co


You are correct! When the high beam is turned on the low beam should still be active! What type of bulb are you using? Are the high and low beam from the same bulb or separate!

My 1984 chevrolet silverado high beams lights works and low beam lights, turning lights, emergency light and brakes lights don't work. I need help!


Those lights are on different circuits. The high and low beam lights are powered thru the headlight switch, the turn signals, brake, and hazards go thru the turn signal switch.
I would want to know if each circuit has power at the switch that controls it.

I have a gmc sierra 3500 6.5 turbo diesel and the only head lights i have are brights. I changed the dimmer switch and still the same results. the switch is new.


the high beam turn signal cruise control switch in the steering column will do exactly this. we just replaced ours in our tahoe. we had only high beams also.

No headlights. Low beam out High beam work. I replaced the bulbs and check all fuses. Could it be the headlamp switch


could be becauce if you dont have low beams and high beams do work once you replace them with new bulbs low beams should work.

Engine stalls(dies-down) upon blinking the headlights...


you have a bad ground,or a battery voltage that is so low,that the 20 amps from the high beams circuit is pulling the voltage down so low that the ignition can not run properly.
put on the rear defogger,does it do it? if not,look for the ground junction common to ignition and the high beam circuits.
