First identify if your day running lights (DRL) are working. The DRL and high beams will work on the same relay. If your DRL are working, but not your high beams, you may need to replace your high beam relay which is found in the fuse panel under the hood of the engine at the right back corner; near the firewall, and passenger tire strut mount. If there is also a problem with your DRL with the high beams, its likely the DRL relay which can be found tucked under the dash.

There's usually a cover that says "relays", "fuses", etc. Lift the cover and look underneath, it should label the relays. If not, consult a manual or repair book. Try swapping similar relays from know working accessories if you don't have a new one handy.

My 2001 s10 drivers side low beam headlight seems to work on automatic during the day , but not work at night on auto or switch on ?


The daytime lights run off the highbeam circuit on reduced voltage. If the lowbeam is not operational, take a look at the plug at the headlight and inspect for looseness. If tight, inspect for a constant ground and a 12v power supply with the headlights turned on low beam at the headlight connector. repair a necessary

When I turn on my headlights the lowbeam lights will not come on. I switched the highbeam and lowbeam wires to see if it was the wires or the lights. the lowbeam lights came on when i put the high beam...


It is either the light switch or the headlight relay, I would say first go for the relay as it carries the actual load of the lights. It will not be a fuse, the headlights are fused individually.

Where is the headlight relay on a ford festiva


OK, you're looking at a switch or a relay because although the drl's work, that's a different circuit that's added on after the regular headlights and high beams.

Also, check your fuses and wiring for a problem there.

I have no lights. I just replaced the switch like the car place told me but they still dont work. They told me that there wasn't a fuse is that true


I wouldn't take someones word that there were no fuses, I have yet to find a car that doesn't have some sort of over current protection with fuses or circuit breakers. check the owners manual, it usually will tell you the size and location of the fuses in the car.
