SOURCE: low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do

Clyde,

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.

SOURCE: headlights wont turn on but high beams do on my camry

Have you tried new bulbs, its rare but both low beams may have blown at the same time, it has happened to me in the past.
I don't know your car but the high and low beams could be fused separately so you are left with at least one set in an emergency.

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse

SOURCE: High beams won't turn off

  • The problem is a faulty dimmer switch. Here are step by step instructions for fixing it. (Try it - it's easy and way cheaper than having a mechanic fix it).
  • The Ford Focus high-beams (won't shut off) problem is very common in 2000-'05 models. So common, in fact, there should have been a recall, but there wasn't. Luckily, it is also VERY easy to fix. This was the first time I ever fixed anything other than a bulb on my car and it took me less than 30 minutes. Here's how:
  • First, buy the part. The "dimmer switch" is the lever to the left of your steering wheel that controls high/low-beams and the turn signals. You can get it at Pep Boys, Standard Autoparts, or a similar store for about $45.
  • Now, to install the part: Make sure the car is off as are the lights, radio, etc. First, disconnect the clamp connecting the negative side of your battery to the car. To do this, look under the hood and take the plastic cover off the battery. Use a socket wrench to loosen the nut that is holding the clamp to the negative part of the battery (in my '04 Focus, the negative side is on the right when you are facing the battery from the front side of the car). Once the clamp is loosened, yank the clamp upward until it disconnects (this might take a little elbow grease).
  • Now, go back to the driver's seat. You are going to take the following steps to remove the switch and replace it with your new switch: First, notice the tabs on the left and right of the steering column. Use a flat-head screwdriver to push them in and release the top cover of the steering column. The cover won't come off the dash, but now you can open it up to see inside the steering column. You will see the switch you are going to replace. Press the tab (on the back end of the switch) to release it. (You will hear a "click" and the switch will adjust upward once you press the tab). NOTE: You may need a screwdriver to help you work in the steering column, unless you have small hands. Now, slide the switch up from where it is held, but be mindful that it is still connected (by wires) to the interior of the column. The next part was the toughest for me, but it really is very simple. You need to remove the grey plug from the switch. It took me some pressing with the screwdriver and really working the angles, but in the end I think it was sheer brute force that got it disconnected. Now the switch is out (and you feel awesome - even with bloody knuckles).
  • All that is left is to put the new switch in ... and that's REALLY easy. Connect the new switch to the grey plug that you just disconnected from the old switch. Mindfully slide the new switch into the spot where the old switch sat. Push it in so you hear that same "click" when the tab you had pressed to release the old part now secures the new part into place. Once it's in, you are all set. All that is left to do is put the steering column cover back in place and reconnect the battery.
  • Now, isn't that better than blinding everyone on the other side of the road?
  • If this helped you, let me know.

    When you turn on the head lights the current draw exceeded the capacity of the alternator and battery and left nothing for the ignition system. Have a load test done on the battery . check the tension and condition of the alternator drive belt.

    Instructions
      • Turn the headlight switch on and inspect the headlights. Make sure to check both low- and high-beam lights, and then note the position of the bulb in the headlight assembly. Low-beams are in the top cavity of the assembly and high-beams are in the lower cavity.
      • 2Turn off the headlight switch and then remove the keys from the ignition.
      • 3
      • Open the hood and locate the seam to the headlight assembly and the side fender. Locate the headlight assembly release lever and push in on it slightly to unlock it and then pull it all the way up until it stops.
      • 4Place a blanket or pillow on the ground in front of the headlight assembly. Push the assembly outward from behind with one hand while being ready to catch the assembly with the other. The New Beetles use an adhesive sealant to protect the back of the headlights from exposure to moisture, so you'll have to give the assembly a push from behind.
      • 5Pull the wire harness plugs off from both the high- and low-beam blades of the respective bulbs.
      • 6Place the assembly on the blanket or pillow. Release the wire clip to the faulty headlight and then remove the headlight bulb.
      • 7Open the package of the new H1 bulb replacement without touching the glass portion of the bulb with your bare skin. Oils in human skin will damage the bulb. Handle it only by the metal base of the bulb insert.
      • 8Insert the new bulb in the appropriate headlight-assembly cavity and reattach the bulb retaining clip to lock the bulb in place.
      • 9Lift the assembly up and plug the wire harness plugs back into the respective blades of the bulbs.
      • 10Push the headlight assembly into its cavity, but before locking it in place, check the lights by turning on the headlight switch.

    2007 buick allure headlights will not turn on parking lights work,high beams work. no low beams or daytime running lights


    As you described the problem the solution is to replace the headlight bulbs, they have two elements one for normal lighting or low beam and one for high beams. the elements for the low beams are continuously used and are subject to burn sooner.
