Question about 2000 Nissan Maxima
I replaced LH headlamp bulb that was burnt out. Now I'm having issues with high beam and low beam. When I installed the LH headlamp bulb the brights indicator would stay on all the time. When I took the LH headlamp bulb out the brights indicator worked as it should, but there was very little difference between high beam a low beam. Also, with the bulb in, switching from high beam to low beam the switch worked opposite from the way it's supposed to. For example, the brights would normally come on only when you push the switch forward, but not now. Could it be the switch itself that's causing the issue?

The headlamp circuit is rather simple. From the 15 amp RH headlamp fuse, there is a red w/yellow trace that goes to the RH high beam. Out of the 15 amp LH headlamp fuse, the wire going to the LH Hi beam is solid red. Both of these wires should have power when the headlamp relay is energized. The wires from the Hi Beam bulbs going back to the switch should both be red w/black trace. The wire going from the headlamp relay to power the 2 15 amp fuses is white. The headlamp switch applies a ground to illuminate either the Lo Beams or the Hi Beams.
