    Is spotties and high beam is using same relay? spotties is Brown relay , if separate what suppose to
    be the color of high , the main is silver round w/c includes low beam. do you know the wire color of high beam control from the colum switch? for easy tracing until the junction plug in the colum.

    Thanks

It sounds like you have a contact problem in the column switch or the high beam relay.

Headlights not working on 2003 alero/all other lights working/checked fuse and changed relay


Here is how they are suppose to work .
Headlamps
The headlamps may be turned on two different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the HEADLAMP position, for normal operation. Second, with the headlamp switch placed in the OFF position, for automatic lamp control (ALC). During ALC, the headlamps will be in day time running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions, or low beam operation in low light conditions. The LH HDLPand RH HDLP fuses, supply battery positive voltage from the underhood junction block to the left and right headlamps. The circuit continues through both low and high beam lamps, then back to the underhood junction block. The low beam and high beam circuits continue to the headlamp switch. The low beam and high beam circuits also provide the body control module (BCM) with both low and high beam inputs. The headlamp switch includes the dimmer switch and the flash-to-pass switch. When the headlamp switch is placed in the HEADLAMP position a path to ground is provided. Ground is provided at G201. Depending on the position of the high/low beam switch, either the low or high beam circuit will now have power and ground.
The LH HDLP fuse in the underhood junction block, supplies battery positive voltage to the automatic lamp control (ALC) headlamp relay coil circuit. The ALC relay switch circuit is connected to the low beam circuit at the headlamp switch. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will automatically turn on the low beams in low light conditions. The BCM energizes the ALC relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G201. With the headlights in the low beam position, the high beams may be momentarily turned on or flashed with the dimmer switch handle. The flash-to-pass feature is accomplished by pulling the dimmer switch handle toward the driver. The headlights may be switched to high beam with the opposite movement of the dimmer switch lever. When the headlamp dimmer switch handle is pulled toward the driver, the flash-to-pass switch closes grounding the high beam circuit. Ground is provided at G201. Both high beams will remain on until the driver releases the switch handle.
If the driver places the headlight switch in the HEADLAMP position , the headlights will remain on until turned off or the battery runs dead.

Finding a wiring diagram to use along with a DMM - digital multi-meter (voltmeter ) To test the electrical circuits for the headlamps B+ power & ground side of the circuit is the way to find a fix .

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

Headlights not working


Not a fuse problem , same fuse power's low an high beams . Looking at wiring diagrams an using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test the electrical circuit's is the way to find the problem . The light's staying on for 3 or 4 min's. is a function of the BCM - body control module ! Do you know anything about automotive electrical testing ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is an how to read one . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on headlamps .Click the search button then the blue link. get yourself a cheap DVOM an test the electrical circuit's , this is how electrical problems are solved .

Plus reading factory service repair info for how it should work would be a good idea .

Is Blue Lite For High Beam Supposed T oStay on when clicked?


To clarify, when you pull the turn signal lever towards you, the high beam lights will come on only as long as you hold the lever up. This is the flash to pass feature.
To switch the headlights from low beam to high beam, you push down on the lever towards the dash. Then the high beam lights and the blue indicator light should stay on.

did you check to see if the fuse was any good.if it wasn`t then replace the fuse.a fuse will not cost you $25 as you indicate.if it works after changing the fuse that`s all you have to do.it could be the dimmer switch at the base of the steering colume that changes from high to low beam lights when you move the signal arm.you can find it by looking under the dash and move the arm to activate the switch to find it.you can check for power out of the switch with a test light.the wire color will be the same as the wire at the back of the headlight for the low beam.

1998 exporer Limited Edition Day time running lights don't work. I am trying to locate the DTRL Module on the vehicle. I will start by replaceing that first.Also have problem with my high beam indicator...


There is a fuse that controls; headlamps, DRL module & instrument cluster. It is the fuse box inside the vehicle mounted on the side of the dash on the drivers side and you can see the panel if you open the door. the fuse that I am talking about is in the # 33 position. If you are looking into the box the one on the very bottom closest to the firewall. There are onlt two fuses on the bottom and they are both sideways. It's a 15 Amp fuse. Ihope this helped you and good luck.

When I turn on my highbeams, the lowbeams shut off. Is this normal?


Yes, the low beams will shut off if you turn on high beam. Not sure which way yours work but if you push the lever for high beam, pull the lever back and all lights will come on or vise versa. You would think all the lights would turn on when going into high beam.
