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

You headlight lamp have a diffuser mechanism which allows it to flip between the hight beam and low beam feature of the bulb. In fact, you high beam will function even if the low beam is not working.

I would recommend the purchase of the new headlight lamp. It would cost you you any where from $15.00 per unit to get a replacement lamp

SOURCE: bright lights don't work

check the headlight wires for power when you have the highbeams switched on, more than likley its gonna be your dimmer switch, its really common in older vehicles

Are you able to go to salvage yard and plug in without removing the original,another head light switch assembly to check wether it will make a difference, as it sounds like the switch/wand is the problem

SOURCE: INOP low beam and high beams

The problem is the headlight switch itself - it's one of the most common failures on these cars. The part, brand-new, is about $158 from ECSTuning.com. Replacing it involves removing the airbag and steering wheel - not difficult but a little nerve-wracking due to the power of the airbag.

If this is something you want to tackle on your own, reply back here and I can give you a step-by-step on doing the work yourself. Or you can go to a shop/dealer and just have them do it. They'll probably charge you at least two hours' labor, even though it's a 40 minute job. Let me know what you would like to do.

The head lights are powered by the battery through the ignition switch. The headlight relay may be malfunctioning.

I have found a link for your car in case you wish to replace. It's the same I use to buy parts for my car. I hope it's useful.

The problem is a Headlight module. Fuse box under the hood has two black modules side by side, the one on your right is the headlight module the one on the left is the fan module. Try swapping them, if the headlights work replace bad module, don't drive vehicle with the bad module in the fan slot. Mine kept going bad because I had a high intensity bulb on one side.

Check to see if you are getting any power to the low beams via the headlamp plug. If you are not, then you need a new light switch.

No headlights come on but high beams work as well as the other lights the fuses seem to be ok. Please help.


If your highbeams are working fine, you must be referring to your low beams not working I would simply check the 2 bulbs and make sure the low beam filament is good, theres a strong possibility that your BOTH low beam filaments are bad and require replacement of both headlight bulbs to get them working again its a very simple repair.....
