Question about 2001 Kia Optima
High beam working OK low beam not working at all
I have checked all fuses and bulbs......all OK
This morning my headlights stopped working no light at all, but the high beams worked.
My mother's car was doing the same thing. The trouble ended up being the electrical connector on the bulb. It was not making contact with the plug. Once I replaced the plug the problem was corrected. The super low lights could have been due to the fact that the other bulb was not on. Try checking the connection and if that is the trouble, replace the plug if possible.

SOURCE: Headlights, high beams
No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.

it more then likey a lose wire or bear one. run the line down. i think that the high beams run on diff. fuses. you can try that!

When you checked the bulb plug and got 12 volts, did you meter ground some where else on the car? If so, you might check ground also at the plug.
