Accurate fault finding requires a steady nerve and thought as to what powers what. You changed a bunch of stuff without ascertaining you had any juice there in the first place. Take a basic probe with bulb type circuit tester and see if there is any supply at the high beam fuse holder with the fuse removed. One claw that holds the fuse should be live, possibly needing the key to be in the on position. If not then find a diagram in a manual or online and see where the supply comes from. If yes then insert the fuse and move down the line to the h/lamp switch, being careful where you poke the tester. If OK then switch the lights on and locate the high beam relay. Remove relay and see if 2 pins in the relay bank are live. Why 2? Because the relay switches the heavy current required to the h/lamps. This means 1 pin is from the switch and 1 from fuse box (usually) this is where a diagram is gold. If you have a live pin that responds to the switch operation but no others you will have to refer to the diagram to see where the heavy supply comes from and think again. If you have 2 live pins, refit the relay, see if the relay clicks under your thumb when the high beam is operated. If yes, move on down to the plug at the headlamps in turn. Sometimes the harness crosses from one side to other with multi pin plugs. Check the fit of any plugs you find and for trapped or rubbed harness. Continue in a methodic way in hand with a diagram.

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.....

Your switch must be working since your indicator is telling you when the high beams are on, so my guess is that your bulbs are faulty. The high beam part. They probably burnt out one at a time, so you didn't notice until the second one went. Change your bulbs, and see if that solves it. If not, let me know.

1999 Toyota Camry . Low beams work, but no high beam.


I would guess the switch on the steering column
is worn out,thus no high beam feature

That switch & that part of the lighting system has to be tested

Best if you have wiring diagrams & electrical skills

As with almost all folks that come to any web site, I assume
everyone ends up at a repair shop,because no one says otherwise

2001 ford ranger , no high or low beam lights


Check the On/Off switch on the dash, steering column, and the steering arm/lever is connected properly and that the lighting cable's are cable connectors are connected and not corroded.
1, To check the Earth: Connect a cable from the earth of the bulb to the chassis/body/ metal part of the car.
2, Using a Test lamp: Disconnect the cable that connects the power to the head light bulb, Connect one end of the test lamp to any one of the connectors at the end of the cable that plug's into the bulb. With the low beam on, only one of these wire's will the light switch turned on will light up the test lamp bulb. If none of the cable's light the test lamp bulb. the problem is in the High beam relay, and possibly the Low beam relay as well.
One Head lamp relay: If one cable show a light in the test lamp, check the earth cable on that lamp.
Two Head lamp relay: If two cable's show a light in the test lamp, check the earth cable on that lamp.
Some of the car's electrical systems use the Steering column as an earth point. Check the switch.
In many cases are what is called Earth return (this means that the positive power (+) is supplied by one wire, and the negative earth (-) is connected via another wire) this is to reduce the problems of the rust effecting the power flow.
Get the wiring loom layout in the Cars book

The high beam indicator is on. The low beams don't work.


You need a new headlight dimmer switch located on the steering column between the dash and the firewall

High beam headligts will not come on + no dash


Sounds like a bad switch to me. If it was a relay,it would not work period.Not to mention, the switch controls the dash lights too.
