SOURCE: low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do


I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse

How to adjust headlights on a 98 mercury tracer

There are usually 2 hex screws on each lens. The State Vehicle inspections govern how headlights are suppose to be aimed if you live in a State requiring Annual inspections.

For this reason, I would suggest looking at Youtube videos or finding a CD at an autoparts store which include this process.

In general, you would park between 20 or 30 feet from a wall or garage door and shine your low beams on the surface. Get a piece of tape to use as a marker for each beam to mark the starting point from the brightest point of each beam.

Then measure the height of the center of each headlight and compare to the tape mark and how high it is on the door or wall. If the center of the headlight is higher than the mark on the wall, GOOD.

What you want is the drivers' beam to point away from oncoming traffic and farther forward on your direction of travel not to become cross-eyed with the passengers' beam. Seek to not have a dark spot in the center of your travel. The passenger beam usually shifts to the curbside and up because of parked cars and no one to blind with your lights.

Personally I like to adjust my passenger headlamp beam to highlight the lane markers and center my car in my lane on the Interstate. This is particularly useful in foggy or rainy driving conditions and around curves.

A body shop or collision shop can probably do this for you for a reasonable price as replacing the front sheet metal of a vehicle can require reaiming the lights.

1994 Lexus LS 400 One headlight is ineffectual dim with yellowish color, replaced bulb, replaced end plug, no effect, what now, please?

The first thing you need to do is check both fuses for the right headlamp. There will be one for the high beam and the low beam. If the fuses are good than we need to check the ground. The ground wire is the red wire with the white tracer. Whith the headlights on use a jumper wire from that wire to the battery ground. If the headlight is know bright than you will need to start tearing into the harness to find out where the wire is bad and/or corroded. It will be somewhere in between the connector and where the wire splices into the ground for the left headlight. Since the left headlight works fine we know that the wiring from that splice to ground is good. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

All lights work including high beam, but NO low beam. 1994 Capri.

Hi, ther are two elements in each headlight bulb , one for high beam and one for low beam and your low beams are burnt out ,you will have to replace the bulbs to have low beams too , which you can get at the auto parts store, they are not very expensive or difficult to do .

What does the fuse diagram look like for a 1988 mercury tracer, my high beams work but low beams dont

Headlights typically do not use fuses, but rather circuit breakers. That makes the lights function longer than fuses.

Have you checked to be sure that both low beams are not burned out? It is a common problem, if you do not notice the first light burned out.

If yours are a halogen style DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS with your fingers. Oils from your fingers will alter the glass, and it will burn out prematurely. No Touchie, and if so, clean with alcohol and swab. Costs less too, as bulbs last much longer.
