    Same here - might be a bad high beam relay - when I pull back on the signal switch, the high beams go on, so that confirms it is not a fuse...not sure if that is controlled by the relay...I am anxious also for a solution

Pull your lever back if the high beams work that way you need a new high/low beam switch, if they do not you need to replace headlight bulbs.

How do i keep my high beams on?


If your high beams are controlled by your blinker lever if you pull.the lever towards you it will flash the high beams on. If you push the lever towards the front of the vehicle(dashboard) it should stay forward. Click it back towards you it will.go back to normal lights

I can't get my brights to stay on without having to hold them on . What might be the issue


I find that to energise the high beam momentarily (to warn oncoming motorists) I pull back on the switch lever but to change to full beam on I push down on the lever until it clicks as the low /high beam is the back and forward motion of the light switch

I have 2006 grand prix and the bright lights wont come on. I move the blinker lever forward and the low beams stay on but i get the blue bright light on the dash, checked fuses all seem to be okay


do you hear the click of the dimmer switch when you move the lever if you do then the steel rod that goes from the lever to the switch itself is working and the switch is moving from the low beam to high beam circuit.if the blue dash indicator is on them power is coming out of the switch to the dash to operate the light.its possible that the dimmer switch may need to be adjusted a little if you don`t hear the click but moves enough to put the dash light on but not enough to turn the high beams on,that is possibly why the low lights stay on.or you have a bad dimmer switch itself

When I turn on my highbeams, the lowbeams shut off. Is this normal?


Yes, the low beams will shut off if you turn on high beam. Not sure which way yours work but if you push the lever for high beam, pull the lever back and all lights will come on or vise versa. You would think all the lights would turn on when going into high beam.

The headlights are stuck on high beam.


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.

1992 Mazda PU no highbeams


It could be both lamps are burnt out.try replacing the lamps. Or checking the voltage at the lamp plugs. If the plugs have current with the light switch on. Then the lamps are bad.
