Pulling on the turn signal switch is called "flash to pass" and you are activating the high beam lights.
Have you checked to see if you have power in and out of the dimmer switch on low beam ?

You did not say what the make model and year is, so I will give a generic answer.
Holding the dimmer switch to make the headlights come on is called Flash to Pass and that bypasses the headlight switch.
So you would need to know if you have power in and out of the headlight switch and then thru the dimmer switch.

1999 Buick Headlights will not come on


Did you check the headlight switch ?
The high beams working bypass the headlight switch so you can flash to pass another car.

I have a 1984 dodge 4x4 1/2 ton. the headlights dont work just the running lights work when i pull the light switch out. i bought new headlights nothing


some times when the dimmer switch on the floor goes bad the headlights will cut out. Try replacing the dimmer switch and the headlights should come back on. My 84 dodge had that exact problem.

Headlight lamp switch wires


as there are a number of wires, and you dont want to short out something else.you shoul probably go to mitchell online and pay a small amount to get access to there repair info for your truck.you could also go to your library if you need to get it for free,it would take someone a lot of time to download this picture and info.if you have no headlights it could also be the combinsation switch behind the steering wheel, the dimmer switch, play with the dimmer switch a little to see if the lights come on, if so remove the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and remove teh two small scews that hold the switch on to replace it.

Tail lights won't come on. All other lights work, dashboard switch replaced.


I recommend checking your dimmer switch. A bad switch will cause tail lights not to work. As long as bulbs are good and headlight switch is working and wires are securely in place, then the dimmer switch or fuse is bad.

NO headlights when turn ed on but lights will work if you hold th


Are these interior lights our the headlights? If it is the interior lights, you should pull the dimmer switch and check for a bad connection especially the ground connection on the back side. If that is okay, you may need to buy a new switch. If it is the headlights, check for a bad relay.
