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 switch. did you do anything to the switch when you changedheadlamps? maybe you put the lamp in incorrectly also did the brights work on the lamp that was "burned out"?

SOURCE: headlights wont burn on low beam

I had a similar problem. I found the switch under the steering wheel cowling was broke. I actually glued and repaired it and have had no further problems.

It has been a long time since I did it but I remember it was fairly easy to remove the cowling and inspect the switch. Good luck, ml

Low beams work but one works high beam and one dosent work

Either one of your headlight bulbs has burnt out it's high beam filament (which can be checked by swapping the bulbs over from one headlight to the other and seeing if the fault follows the suspect bulb) or the actual switch on the steering column has fried it's contacts..which means removing the switch assembly and having it overhauled by a good auto electrician, or replaced with a new switch assembly..then it will be good for another 13 years

Seal beam doesn't light

You should be able to replace just the headlight bulb itself, most cars haven't had sealed beam headlights since the '80s. Assuming that's what you mean by "seal beam". Is it the main beam/dip beam, the high beam, or is it a driving light/fog light (usually mounted down low in the bottom of the front bumper area)?
