    This is what I'm dealing with too, just replaced the halogen bulbs with brand new ones, and I have exactly the same problem: no low beam on the left side. I bought new bulbs and replaced the old ones but now I think that was a waste of $60... is it an electrical issue?

SOURCE: 1997 Chevrolet Headlight problem

We had the same exact symptoms right down to the clicking noise under the dash. A friend who is a mechanic provided all the wiring diagrams, etc and when we pulled the dash we found that there was another enclosure behind the dash.....we stopped there.......

....waited a few days, did some research and decided since a replacement headlight switch was about $50.00 the easiest route was to to swap that out hoping it would fix the problem....was also a very easy installation.

Turns out that fixed the problem. Good luck!!!

SOURCE: headlights alternate on and off left and right daytime/high beam

although the underhood relay panel is common, I'd check your headlamp bulbs first, these are cheaper than the fuse box. The daytime running lights work off the high beam circuit, thus, a blown highbeam bulb could be the culprit, the fusebox solution was more common on 2001 and up modles, although it's a definite possibility.

SOURCE: High beam headlights quit working. Bulbs are OK.

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.

High beam indicator comes on with fog lights


Could your Mazda have daytime running lights? If you checked all fuses, did that include the three in the joint box?

There is an auto light-off control module that is central to all functions you describe. It is assumed that you would only turn on the fog lights with headlights on and set for high beam. If you set the headlight switch to LOW, the module closes the headlight relay to turn on the low beams. If you then turn the headlight switch to HIGH, the module turns on the high beams and allows you to turn on the FOG LIGHT switch, closing the fog light relay and turning on the fog lights. Since this sequence is not working, I suggest checking both high beam lamps as both could be burned out. Other possibilities are a defective headlight switch or the module

My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

When I click the headlights to bright all of the lights go out. I have already replaced the switch in the stearing column. What is wrong.


Try disconnecting one of your headlights and click on the high beams. If it goes to high without any other problems, then the problem is in the other headlight high beam circuit. If all the lights go out, then the problem lies in the high beam circuit of the headlight you disconnected. You can verify this by reconnecting the first headlight and disconnecting the other one. There is most likely a short to ground in one of the high beam circuits.

If you have daytime running lights. That is, your headlights stay on automatically. You will need to check the daytime running light relays. There may be four of them to check. One of them grounds the high beams.

Running lights,high beam but no low beam headlights. Has daytime running lights but when you turn the headlights on ,no low beam but they work with the day time running lights?


I would check the switch which is separate from the module that controls the daytime running lamps.
Check for fuses blown for the headlamps.

Also, check for the relay operation by following the wires back to it, if so equipped.

Check for a good ground for the headlamp wires that you follow back to make sure they are solidly connected to a ground.

Good luck on this repair.

Sounds like you need a bulb,the daytime running lights send power to the high beam wire so they look like low beam lights are on but really they are high beam lights running on low voltage.

Headlights wont work on 2000 chevy silverado everything else works. The high beam light will even show up on bright.The running lights work. Headlights just wont come on.


Check the fusible links under the hood. Also, double check the bulbs are in fact good. Lastly it could be a defective daytime running light relay.

Daytime Running lights wont come on on my 2000 Grand Am SE.


Do your high beam headlights work? If you have a burnt high beam light the daytime running lights won't work and then the service vehicle soon light comes on.

Low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do


Clyde,

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.
