SOURCE: one headlight turns off and driving lights when brights turned on

First, it is a factory setting that turns the running lights off when the bright lights are turned on, so that's nothing to worry about. Now the headlight issue could just be a bulb. If this has a headlamp for both high and low, it is possible it just blew the high beam part. If there are seperate lamps for high and low beams, then try replacing the bulb. It should not be an electrical problem unless you had to remove or disturb alot of parts to change the wires and plugs. Let me know if this helps :)

SOURCE: 1994 Mercedes c280 high beams not working...

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?

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Durango, headlights flicker

I had a similar problem on my 2001 Caravan. Turned out to be a loose connection between the frame control module and the fuse box. I unscrewed the frame/front control module from the fuse box and bent the tabs slightly to make better contact. Then tighten down the module securley. Need star driver to loosen screws

All lights in my 1996 ford escort won't work

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you check all the fuses and replaced the blown ones. The headlight relays must be replaced as well for it surely is worn out. There's no way to test if the relays are out so I suggest a replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

1986 Supra. Head lights pop up but does not turn on.

the headlight pop-up circuit is different from the lights themselves. Check the headlight fuses in the engine compartment fuse box. If the fuses are good then check the headlight relay. It is in the same fuse box just behind the headlight fuses. (The headlight relay is the second relay from the right side of the fuse box. the relay at the far right is the electronic fuel injection main relay.)

Hideaway headlights won't open/close - is there an easy do-it-yourself solution for repair? (This is a 1990 Firebird)

After you hit the headlight switch, what happens? If nothing, can you manually raise/lower the headlights by spinning the knobs? If this is the case, it's most likely you just need to replace the relay.

If not... Do both of the motor knobs just starting spinning for 10-20 seconds? If this is the case, you need to replace the gears inside the motors. (Repair kits with all the parts you'll need to repair both motors run $10-20 give or take.)

I spent a couple of hours this very afternoon replacing mine... heh, guess both our '90s rolled off the assembly line at the same time, eh?

No driving lights?

Hello there - I would suggest checking the fuse for your lights in the fuse box, and check under the hood for a fuse/relay box, and have the relay tested. If the fuses and relays are good, open the hood, and try to check the connection to the headlights and make sure they are securely connected. You also mentioned that when you push the headlights switch forward for brights, and turn on the night time head lights, and neither come on but the daytime lights do, makes me suspect the switch itself may be bad. I would first check the fuses and relays if any. Second, I would replace the bulbs (if replacable). Other than that, my last guess would be an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere. I hope this information helps you fix your lights. Thank you for your time and consideration in my suggestions/answers.

Niether driver or passenger headlights will pop up or turn on

It could be the motors that raise up the headlights are dead. Try replacing those and check the connectors to the motors for any damage. Also use a volt meter to see if the motor is getting any power and work from there. I know when mine was starting to go out it made a terrible noise when the headlight came down and then I could not just turn on my fog lights without the headlight coming up on the light with the motor that was going out. Hope this helps you out.

Headlight won't pop up

Assuming the headlight housing is not damaged, the motor or the relay may be at fault. Try switching the breakers (found under the hood- check your owner's manual for the exact location). Also check your fuses. If you can get the headlight to come up by switching the relay breakers, remove the breaker prior to turning off the lights. That might make the light stay up. There should be a small manual operator located behind the light housing that can be used to put up the light.
