    have you checked the bulb to make sure it hasn't finally blown? have you checked the socket wires for a loose terminal?

I've had this happen to me. It's a bad bulb with a broken filament the makes and brakes. If when you check the bulb and it's ok than look to the plug on the rear of the bulb possibly not making contact. Good luck.

The hi beam light that does not work needs a bulb replacement. Once the bulb is changed recheck the hi-beam indicator.

I have a 97 nissan altima and my lowbeams dont work but my highbeams do and i already replaced headlights today?? what can i do


Could be your dimmer switch gone bad, that controls your low and high beams, the contacts for the low beam is usually the one that goes bad first, the high beam contact isn't used much.
My Oldsmobile had the same problem, only high beams worked, replace the dimmer switch and fixed the problem. Unfortunately with my car replacing the dimmer switch gave me a hard time. Most dimmer switches are located in the steering column underneath the dash board and a little hard to get at. Dimmer switch costs about 12 to 15 dollars, very cheap but very hard to reach and replace. The switch it self is activated with a small metal rod going up and down next to the steering column and into your turn signal lever, when you pull up it pushes the metal rod down to activate your high or low beam lights.

Low beam headlights sometime will not go on, or go off after using highbeams.


low beam not working could be relay or bad contact at stork control. Fog lights should only work with park lights on. not supposed to be on with headlights like in the movies. This is illeagle in australia to have head lighs and fog lights on together as well as being dangerous to other motorists

AT FUSE TERMINAL #45 TO THE RIGHT OF THE HIGH BEAM RELAY AS YOU ARE LOOKING INTO THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT FROM THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. THERE IS A 15 AMP FUSE, PULL IT AND SEE IF IT IS BAD. IF IT IS REPLACE IT. THIS IS THE FUSE FOR THE HIGH BEAM RELAY.

you have a wiring problem, look up cavalier headlight wiring on the internet, there is a harness connector under the battery that sometimes goes bad, or the wires are broken inside the insulation, usually in the front harness, the head lights hi and daytime lights are controlled through the ecm and low beam is on a separate circuit, i have also found problems in the switch or the drl module in the fuse box, any mor questions mail me

Highbeam headlights work but no low beam, it is not the switch........?


Check voltage at the circuit box and test the high/low dimmer switch. Corrosion on a ground wire could also be the problem.

My headlights only work on highbeam.


Yes there is a relay switch that allows the low to high beam switch to occur. It shoud be mounted under the hood along the firewall. Check your manual too!

Thanks,
