Either your bulb are shot (unlikely if both don't work) or your high beam switch is bad. Check fuses first, as some cars have a separate fuse for the high beams.

SOURCE: LOW BEAM LIGHTS

Hi Rich Million,

Check the bulbs for the low beam problem and if they're ok, check the fuses under the bonnet (hood) which are found in the fuse box. If you've already checked those, go to the fuse box inside the vehicle.

Still no luck....remember that there are fuses and relays inside the cabin behind the kick panel.....You may find that there is a problem with the main fuse box.....If you drive over rough terrain, check the connections under the main fuse box....even if your roads are all smooth, it's still worth checking.....

check the headlight wires for power when you have the highbeams switched on, more than likley its gonna be your dimmer switch, its really common in older vehicles

How to turn bright lights on


Depends on the vehicle.
Lots of "modern" cars require that you press the turn signal switch away from yourself for high beam, and pull it towards yourself to switch to low beam. While on low beam, a gentle tug on the handle will flash your high beams.
It's a good idea to park facing a wall and then practice using the switches. you can see the result by looking at the wall.
Cheers.

Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights


The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

Replaced the headlights and it seems as though the high beams are not working right. They are on but not right, when you turn on the bright lights should both the low and high beam bulls be on?


Depends on model, most of GM products now have seperate beams for low and high, and some high beams require a different headlight for proper brightness.

Does this model use a 4 headlight bright system? I have 2 low beam lights but when I put on the bright lights the 2 low beam lights go out and only the 2 bright lights stay on.


I think that many 1990s and even some 1980s GM vehicles with seemingly 4 headlight systems actually use only 2 at a time.

My 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais, for instance, had 2 high beams that went on independently of the 2 low beam lights when switched with the turn signal lever.

In the 1970s the GM vehicles had 4 headlight systems where all 4 headlights would go on, but they used sealed beams rather than the capsule lights that are used nowadays.

For instance, our 1976 Cadillac Seville has a 4 headlight system that lights up 4 headlights on the high beam mode.

Good luck on seeing at night with the current set up.

Cannot adjust low and high beam headlights separatlyLexus LS 430


Shine your head lights on a wall either in your garage or outside wall and re-adjust your head light back to were you think you had them last. Use the high beam and the low beam settings and you will be able to beam the light were you think they should be. Common problem with most new vehicles now days, low beams don't seem to be bright enough.

My bright light indicater is working, but I don't have any bright lights?


So, when u turn on the high-beams, the indicator light goes on, but u still have low beam headlights only? Check the headlight (either one), and see if by chance both high beams burned out at approx. the same time. U don't specify what year, I'm not sure if u have a replacement bulb, or a sealed beam headlight to replace. If the high beams are both ok, then it must be the headlight high beam switch. Let me know what u find.
