I'm not sure about US vehicles but here in the UK you can't run high beam and fog lights, it defeats the purpose of fog lamps in that they see below the fog which starts generally about 2feet from the surface. I'm sure someone will correct me about that!
Anyway, have a good look at the relay box, ascertain the high/low and fog relays and see if they can be swapped with another to test. Make sure any relay swapped has the same pin configuration and rating. Next, check out the headlamp/foglamp ground connection, its usually down behind the lamps and may have several similar coloured wires going to a heavy screw or bolt. Loosen the connection, wiggle it about to clean it and retighten. See if its made a difference?

SOURCE: low beam headlights not working on 2004 Pontiac Montana extended

You headlight lamp have a diffuser mechanism which allows it to flip between the hight beam and low beam feature of the bulb. In fact, you high beam will function even if the low beam is not working.

I would recommend the purchase of the new headlight lamp. It would cost you you any where from $15.00 per unit to get a replacement lamp

Neither headlights working or fog lights any ideas please


First check for blown fuses (a blown fuse indicates there is a short in the lighting circuit ) and check any defective relays. When vehicles are operated with the fog lights on all the time this causes the wiring for the associated circuit(s) to operate at a higher temperature and eventually it will result in a burned out non-conductive connection. Usually the wire(s) burn out where they are connected to switches, at the headlamps, fog lamps etc... Also check for a burned out connection or a melted terminal contact board used for the high beam-low beam switch which is usually located inside the steering column.
Good luck.

Headlight wont work


P lights and fogs are fused separately to h lights. Go to the fuse box. Next the high low relays, then the column switch, but have a test lamp ready to test for a supply at the actual headlamp because if there is power to the lamp but no light, check the ground wires from the headlight unit are tight and on clean bare metal

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

High beam indicator comes on with fog lights


Could your Mazda have daytime running lights? If you checked all fuses, did that include the three in the joint box?

There is an auto light-off control module that is central to all functions you describe. It is assumed that you would only turn on the fog lights with headlights on and set for high beam. If you set the headlight switch to LOW, the module closes the headlight relay to turn on the low beams. If you then turn the headlight switch to HIGH, the module turns on the high beams and allows you to turn on the FOG LIGHT switch, closing the fog light relay and turning on the fog lights. Since this sequence is not working, I suggest checking both high beam lamps as both could be burned out. Other possibilities are a defective headlight switch or the module

Head / fog light adjustment


on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
