FUSES FOR HEADLIGHT DIM AND BRIGHT


Assuming you Focus does not have DRL, setting the light switch to low beam energizes the low beam relay in the battery junction box, sending power through 10A FUSE 16 (L) and FUSE 17 (R) to the headlamp low beam elements

Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights


The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

I only have lights when on bright. I have no dim lights


This is more than likely the cause of a bad relay. Check under the hood and find relays #45 and #46. Swap the relays and check for your low beam lights. If the low beams come on and the brights don't, you have found the problem and need a new relay. Should be about $40 at most part stores. If that doesn't solve the problem, you could pull the low beams and check if they both happened to burn out at the same time, but that is not very likely.

The bright lights work on the truck, but the low beam, daytime burning lights have went out completely.

I have 2006 grand prix and the bright lights wont come on. I move the blinker lever forward and the low beams stay on but i get the blue bright light on the dash, checked fuses all seem to be okay


do you hear the click of the dimmer switch when you move the lever if you do then the steel rod that goes from the lever to the switch itself is working and the switch is moving from the low beam to high beam circuit.if the blue dash indicator is on them power is coming out of the switch to the dash to operate the light.its possible that the dimmer switch may need to be adjusted a little if you don`t hear the click but moves enough to put the dash light on but not enough to turn the high beams on,that is possibly why the low lights stay on.or you have a bad dimmer switch itself

Does this model use a 4 headlight bright system? I have 2 low beam lights but when I put on the bright lights the 2 low beam lights go out and only the 2 bright lights stay on.


I think that many 1990s and even some 1980s GM vehicles with seemingly 4 headlight systems actually use only 2 at a time.

My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, for instance, had 2 high beams that went on independently of the 2 low beam lights when switched with the turn signal lever.

In the 1970s the GM vehicles had 4 headlight systems where all 4 headlights would go on, but they used sealed beams rather than the capsule lights that are used nowadays.

For instance, our 1976 Cadillac Seville has a 4 headlight system that lights up 4 headlights on the high beam mode.

Good luck on seeing at night with the current set up.
