96 gmc yukon headlights will not turn on

I've tried 2 different headlight switches for this model, if i jiggle the switch around i get a noise kinda described like a relay or something is grinding under the dash, but thats brand new too, if i unlock the tilt on the column, and i bang it up and down a few times the lights come on as long as the switch is in the on pos. any ideas of what it might be? im using my fog lights as a substitute here lol

Before the lights went out did you have trouble with your high and low beams not always doing what you wanted?If so you'll have to replace your dimmer switch in the column.The wires, over time will fray and break.

Signal lights work until i turn on headlights


Chances are that this is an issue with the multifunction Switch located in the steering column. This is the switch that the turn signal switch is in. seems most lighting for vehicle routes through this switch and can lead to frustrating lighting issues. You can get these on EBAY and Amazon for around 85 dollars.

2002 Yukon denali headlights not work....all otherlights and signals work fine, it is not the headlight switch or the switch on the column any ideas?????


Check the solenoid switch on the electrical panel under the hood. Just switch the solenoid for the lights with one of the others just to test it. This is a cheap thing to replace.

GMC Yukon 1999, parking lights stay on when truck turned off, why?


If you pull the 20amp park lamp fuse and the lights stay on, it almost has to be a short inside the headlight switch.
Will the lights go off if you unplug the headlight switch ?

Online 1996 gmc yukon headlight schematic? free?


It sounds like it's your Headlight switch has gone bad, I'm thinking that the high beams are the daytime running light which is the same as your High beams. 
If you go to Auto Zone or Parts Source, they have the replacement switch with step by step instructions. Try not to run your Headlights too long from your running light's. The headlight's draw more amps then the running lights and can melt the wire which can result in a short and worst a fire.
If you remove the headlight switch from the dash, check the orange wire for power, if there is 12 volts. Good chance's are that the switch is bad, common on the GM's.
Good luck and hope this helps. I believe they go around $70.00 or do what most guys do. Salvage Yard range from $10.00 to $40.00 and there also have warranty.

Lighting Issue


Sounds like you either have a bad headlight switch or a bad relay under the hood. Also you might want to try turning the lights on for a minute without the motor running,if they work with motor off then its probably the headlight switch.

Headlights not working


Ok Guys Thanks I will check into the dimer switch first, But if it is the turn signal switch assembly with the high beam control on it, it will not be cheap, I think they run about 260.00 each.

Thank you for your input.
