Look under the hood near the firewall on the driver side for the main set.
Look for a black plastic box. I think it has relays also.
You can check the fuses with a multimeter or ohmmeter. Sometime German will look good and be bad.

I don't know where exactly in you car they are but they are on the drivers side. Check in the kick panel on the bottom or on the dash, there should be some cover you can remove. It should say fuses or something. On the cover it'll let you know which fuse is which. If the fuses are good is most likely blown headlights. But its unusual for all to go out at the same time. Sounds like you may have a short-circuit. And yes you can just change them out.

Highbeams work, low beams do not. wipers only work when highbeams are on. highbeams work but only when you HOLD the turn signal lever towards the steering wheel. all other lights work. relay switch or...


The problem is most likely your cars multi function switch. That is the switch that controls your blinkers, dimmer, and everything else. If you change the switch that should solve your problem.

My left headlight highbeam light works and the lowbeam don't why


the filament on the low beam burnt out. but the high beam didn't. You have a filament for each. 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam in the same light bulb. You need a new head light.
