Alot of vehicles have a seperate fuse and/or relay for the high and low beams. if you can't find a problem there it could be the swich itself.

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

Headlights shut off while driving at night


Electrical fault, either the wires are grounding out somewhere along the line or there's a bad connection at the headlight. Check behind your headlight where the harness connects to the bulb. There is likely a bad connection there, if you pull the games off you'll likely see some blackened spot on one of the connections. An easy fix is some aluminum around the spade connector of the bulb to insure a complete connection. Recommend you take the car to have the harness and or bulbs replaced though as the aluminum can be a very temporary fix.

1996 mazda 626 / headlight won't turn on without dimmer switch on high. any solutions?


So what you are saying is you only have high beam lights ?
The problem could be the dimmer switch or the headlight switch, or a relay.
Have you checked for power at the dimmer switch and the relay ?

Dashboard control panel lights on 2001 Chevy Silverado go off. Sometimes they come back on when I hit a bump. Electronic odometer, Drive indicator lights go off.


This could be either a bad headlight switch or dimmer switch. Sometimes the dimmer switch gets dust inside it and causes these symptoms.

Dash lights turn off when headlights are turned on


Check the dimmer switch. First make sure it is turned up so the lights will be at their brightest. Turn the headlights on, if the lights on the dash are actually off, you probably have a faulty dimmer switch.

95 chevy blazer has dash lights intensity varying while driving


This is not a voltage problem. The problem is in the headlight/dash dimmer. You have to turn the dimmer switch on the headlight switch to select what intensity you have right? try turning it down just a smidge and if it stays steady then it is most likely a dimmer switch problem. This requires replacement of the headlight/dimmer switch to fix. local auto parts shop should be able to have this in stock.
ps dont forget to rate my solution please. Thanks

Head lights on 1990 jeep wrangle won't work


Ckeck the headlight connections they are notorious for corroding. Check the ground connection for the lights. Pull your dimmer switch back as if you were flashing a car to pass and see if they work there. If they do you have a dimmer switch problem.

Headlights click on and off


The most likely problem here is a bad light switch in the dash board. It could also be a bad dimmer switch. If you have automatic lights, try to shut down that system first and see what happens. One of these items should be your issue.
