Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
The switch won't change the lights from low beam to high
If the switch clicks I would try a new headlamp. I have seen numerous times when both bulbs burnt out.. I also belive their is a fuse for just the high beam on the PT cruiser

The problem is the headlight switch itself - it's one of the most common failures on these cars. The part, brand-new, is about $158 from ECSTuning.com. Replacing it involves removing the airbag and steering wheel - not difficult but a little nerve-wracking due to the power of the airbag.
If this is something you want to tackle on your own, reply back here and I can give you a step-by-step on doing the work yourself. Or you can go to a shop/dealer and just have them do it. They'll probably charge you at least two hours' labor, even though it's a 40 minute job. Let me know what you would like to do.

Take a look at this link regarding DRL system. I know it's not exact truck but most of it would apply to yours too. It should give you hints on what to test & how.

well as a tech i dont recomend it but all you got to do is swap the wires on the headlamps at the bulb you will see 3 wires one is a ground the other feeds low beam the other high beam . take a test light and find the one thats hot and cut it and connect it to the other blade , leave only one wire on the low beam terminal so you dont short it out .

Testimonial: "Great info many thx"
It sounds like you are confused about how your headlamp system is supposed to work. The DRL does not run on the High beam circuit, it runs on the low beam circuit. The fog lamps are supposed operate with the park lamps and also with the low beams, not the high beams. From your description, I would say that your system is operating as designed and you are having trouble telling High from Low. (Don't feel bad, that is why high beam indicators were invented in the first place.)
