Question about 1996 GMC Yukon
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.
