Question about 1995 Chevrolet Blazer

2 Answers

Replaced Both headlights and neither will come on now?

First off I had a issue with the passenger side headlight being rather dimmer than the other. I was told it was a bad ground most likely. Then the driver side bulb blew a few days later so I replaced both. At first they worked fine for about a hour or so. Turned the truck off and when I went to start it again neither lights work and the high beam light on the dash is staying on. All the other lights including the back lights and side front lights work just fine. The truck is a 95 Chevy Blazer 4 door 2 wheel drive.Any help Would be greatly appreciated . I checked the fuses and no problems there.

    I just Checked the fuses inside the truck. I don't know were the primary fuses are.

    What do you mean by check the high beam switch? Do you mean did I try and jogggle between high and low beam? Yes I did try that and neither high or low beam is working

    I know you mentioned you checked the fuses. Did you check the fuses inside, or did you check the primary fuses under hood, or both?

Under the hood you'll see a black box along the firewall, probably on the driver side. It should say something to the effect of "fuse and relay compartment". Sometimes there are "drip shields" above them so it might be a bit tough to spot. The covers are often held on by either a thumbscrew or a couple of plastic clips. See if you can find that, remove the cover and check inside there. Inside the cover should be a diagram indicating what fuse is for what circuit. In early 90s models and newer there are separate fuses in there for lighting. As for testing the high beam switch, that's not a bad idea, but first I'd recommend picking up an inexpensive automotive test light that you connect to a ground, then probe fuses and other circuits with to see if they are receiving/providing power. Most of these come with fair instructions and I'm sure someone can walk you through how to use it (the basics), rather than just be flippant with you.

Check high beam switch on steering column.

    No...When you check anything, you put either a test light or volt meter on the terminals and see waht is going into or out of the component. "joggling the control" tells you nothing.

You have a bad GROUND going to the dim light. Either the ground wire is broken, not connected or not making contact at the bulb.

More than likely the problem is with the control switch that turns on the high beams, that switch is mounted on the steering column, the high electrical current load that the high beams draw burns the contact inside the switch and the end result is what is going on with your car. To replace the dimmer/headlight switch you will need to remove the trim around the steering column to access the switch for replacement.

You need to get a volt meter at the headlamp plug (Wiring harness) to see if you got a ground, power from the low beam wire, and then power from the hight beam wire. It's the best place to start.
