Will you low beams come on if you move the steering wheel all the way up? Mine will come on with the steering wheel all the way up and then I can move back down and every thing is fine.

There is a headlight relay in the engine compartment fuse box, but its after the headlight switch and before the dimmer switch, so it powers both high and low beam circuits.
I would check the dimmer switch.

SOURCE: no headlights on both sides

How did you check the relays? The most common reason for low beams to be out is Relay #46 in the underhood fuse panel.

Replace Relay #46 in the underhood fuse panel.

SOURCE: Low Beam headlights don't work. High Beam work

hi from uk provided you have checked bulbs are ok? then this fault may be the relay for the low /dipped beam has gone faulty if you check h/book you may find location of low beam relay there is relay for high and one for low beams if you find both relays ? try switching? this will confirm relay fault if you then have low beam but no high ? b4 you buy new relay other than tis the other possible fault may be the actual di/high beam stick control ?

Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights


The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

1996 80 series landcruiser no low beams high beams are fine no spotties all work when pushed into high beams exept spotties and no high beam light shown on dash... Fuses all good blown relay that fused...


Hi Grant I believe that the fuses you are looking for are 7.5 amps and they are found in the fuse cabinet under the hood. If that fails try replacing the H4 bulbs, which I'm susspecting may have blown! Regards John

My high beams do not work. Low beams work fine. When i switch to high beam low beam goes out to. 2004 f-150


Check the high beam relay in the central Junction Box (Fuse box) under dash and check fuse F2.35, 20 amp yellow. One is bad.

See owner manual for fuse panel location & Chart.

2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SES, the blue high beam indicator in the dash comes on with low beams, and goes off with high beams. The indicator is on at the wrong time! I have tried the following: The turn signal...


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.)

My low beams are not working, tried the bulbs, tried the fuses. high beams and fog lights work fine, not sure what to do now


Look at relay #45 in the fuse box under the hood. Next time the low beams don't work,(a lot of times it's intermitent) switch the relay with relay #46 which runs the fan, but is the same relay. Your low beams should now work. For me, I cleaned the relay terminals with fine sandpaper. Although I keep a brand new relay in the glovebox, cleaning the relay terminals worked for me, and lowbeams have not gone out once since the cleaning. I do keep a brand new relay in the glovebox just in case though. Very common problem with Trailblazers and Envoys.

High beam headligts will not come on + no dash


Sounds like a bad switch to me. If it was a relay,it would not work period.Not to mention, the switch controls the dash lights too.
