    The high beam light comes on but your headlights don't? if that is the case you need head lights.

The low beams stopped working but my high beams still do on my 1999 Mazda Protege.

  1. I own a Protege and once the low beam bulb burns on one headlight the car electronics quickly cook the bulb on the other headlight as well. it is a poor design by the mfr. Pull both bulbs to make sure the low beam is not cooked.

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.....

High beam headligts will not come on + no dash

Sounds like a bad switch to me. If it was a relay,it would not work period.Not to mention, the switch controls the dash lights too.

Low beam headlight

either the connection from the wire is corroded or the headlight simply needs replacying, my bet is the latter.
