1994 Mercedes c280 high beams not working...

My 1994 c280 headlights will only work in the low beam position, not the high beams. I found a bad right high beam fuse, checked all the other fuses which were good, replaced this bad one but this didn't solve the problem. I'm thinking it might either be the tree on the steering column, the bulbs themselves which may have blown their high beam capabilities or some type of headlight relay that I may be unaware of. Any thoughts about these conclusions or any of your own I may not have thought of? I have a 1996 c280 with headlight problems, thr first time the lights intermittedly so I replaced the switch, worked for awhile, now just the fog lights work, so I replaced the headlight switch again no change at all, all the fuses are good, the light bulbs are good, is there a relay and where is it located. looking for any help

At first 1994 C280 high beams began to not connect regularly when stick pushed forward, then not at all. Drove high beams by pulling and holding stick back towards steering wheel until that stopped working, too. Shop said the turn signal switch was at fault-- had seen it many times before with W202; about $160 to replace. Haven't done it yet, but should be an easy fix?

Headlight relay under the plastic cover screwed down behind the fuses. Very spendy.

More likely to be the high beam relay if it is affecting both headlights.

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

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

My headlights are not working, but shows my high beams are on


Low Beam Fuse may be bad.
Low Beam relay position is bad.
Stalk that controls the high/low beams/cruise/lights is bad.
Low beam filament may be bad in both headlamps.
