Question about 1996 GMC Yukon

1 Answer

Online 1996 gmc yukon headlight schematic? free?

I have no low beams on my 1996 gmc yukon. The high beams and the running lamps? work fine. I have traced through the wires as much as I can without disassembling everything. I have power at the light junction underneath the steering column. But the power is gone at the cylindrical connection underneath the hood. for now I have connected my low beams into my running lamps wire. So I have lights I just do not want to leave it at that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like it's your Headlight switch has gone bad, I'm thinking that the high beams are the daytime running light which is the same as your High beams. 
If you go to Auto Zone or Parts Source, they have the replacement switch with step by step instructions. Try not to run your Headlights too long from your running light's. The headlight's draw more amps then the running lights and can melt the wire which can result in a short and worst a fire.
If you remove the headlight switch from the dash, check the orange wire for power, if there is 12 volts. Good chance's are that the switch is bad, common on the GM's.
Good luck and hope this helps. I believe they go around $70.00 or do what most guys do. Salvage Yard range from $10.00 to $40.00 and there also have warranty.

Low beams stopped working high beams work fine


Either both bulbs are bad(I've seen it before) or your
dimmer/headlight switch is bad. If you can without pulling the bulb, pull plug from the light. If it's a 4 lamp system pull the low beam. Do this on the left side as the right feeds from the left. With a 12v test light, check for power. (with lo beam on) if you have
power, change the lamp, if you don't it's most likly
the dimmer switch at the steering collum.
Hope this helps Good luck

Low beam headlights not working on 2004 Pontiac Montana extended


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

Headlights not working


Ok Guys Thanks I will check into the dimer switch first, But if it is the turn signal switch assembly with the high beam control on it, it will not be cheap, I think they run about 260.00 each.

Thank you for your input.

What would cause both low beam headlights to go out at the same time? i have replaced the headlights and they still dont work.


The headlight high/low beam switch assembly.96 Safari has the turn signal stem as the high/low beam switch.Removal of the steering wheel is necessary to get to the switch assembly for replacement.
