Pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.

Drop the steerring column and make sure the rod to the high beam switch (bottom of column) is moving when u operate the high beam switch, if not replace the actuator 4 the rod, if it is replace the switch.

this is caused by you delay switch or relay staying in the closed position causing it to short out . or if your headlight switch is on the steering colume and acts as a signal light switch used for low and high beam will need replacing

One low beam head lights will not work, high beam works though


check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse

HIGH BEAMS COMES ON WHEN USING TURN SIGNAL AND LOW BEAMS ARE ON


Hello, is sounds like your issues are coming from within your turn signal/high-low beam switch. Most of the time the wires get worn or break and start rubbing around on each other causing troubles within the electrical circuit. Other times the contact switches inside the turn signal/high beam switch/lever wear and loose contact over time. You may be able to see wires leading from switch into steering colum. Check for bad wires, if none you may have to replace switch which you can get from any junkyard for bout 5 bucks plus learn how to take it apart in a junk car no one is worried about getting destroyed. BE CAREFULL WITH AIRBAGS when you pull your steering wheel to fix switch. It is not a difficult job to do.

High beam indicator comes on with fog lights


Could your Mazda have daytime running lights? If you checked all fuses, did that include the three in the joint box?

There is an auto light-off control module that is central to all functions you describe. It is assumed that you would only turn on the fog lights with headlights on and set for high beam. If you set the headlight switch to LOW, the module closes the headlight relay to turn on the low beams. If you then turn the headlight switch to HIGH, the module turns on the high beams and allows you to turn on the FOG LIGHT switch, closing the fog light relay and turning on the fog lights. Since this sequence is not working, I suggest checking both high beam lamps as both could be burned out. Other possibilities are a defective headlight switch or the module

Low beam head lights are not working. High beams only work when you put the switch on then push the high beam arm on the steering wheel


you may have a problem with the dimmer switch for the headlights.its located on the top of the steering colume at the base of the colume near the firewall.

Ford 2003 Focus. Low beam headlights not working. Hi beam do. Can get low beam to come on if flip between hi and low but don't stay on.


That sounds like a problem with the high beam switch in the low beam position. The contact is bad or the detent retainer isn't keeping the contact engaged.

My daytime running lights work, high beams will come on but switch wont stay on, have to hold it. Low beams do not work and daytime running light dash indicator stays on all the time. Is it a relay or...


if you have to hold the switch so the high beams stay on then that indicates a bad/worn switch,you could have 2 problems the day time running light relay may have a problem with it.i would first replace the headlight switch at the base of the steering colume as by the info you supply its not changing to the high beam side without holding the switch in position.

My headlights went out dont know what the problem is low beam dont work high beams works


it may be the dimmer switch located on the base of the steering colume that is not working on the low beam side.also the headlights themselves may need changing if the low beam filament is burnt out and you didn`t realize one was burnt out then the other one burnt out.if that`s not the case then it could be a bad connection at the plug connector for the low beam or for some reason power is lost between the switch and the headlight.you don`t say if this has day time running lights,if it does then it could be the drl relay that is bad.
