SOURCE: low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do

Clyde,

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.

SOURCE: Headlights and foglights dont work.Checked fuses and replaced

I had the same problem. The solution to this is something called the turn signal/highbeam switch, located in your steering column. This switch has an actuator of some sort that goes bad after a while. It doesn't allow the actuator to turn back into regular headlight mode, instead disabling it. I went to my local junkyard and replaced it. Everything works now. Here is a link to anyone looking to solve their problem - http://www.am-autoparts.com/AM/Switches-and-Levers/Dodge/Intrepid/-/AM-38623751/

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

High beam headlights stuck on replaced switch same problem


It can be issue with headlight switch,but as its already been replaced.Try disconnecting high beam headlight wiring from headlight assembly and reconnect direct external wire from headlight switch to headlight assembly,then by switch see if headlight is getting off and turning on or not.

1997 dodge caravan. headlights won't work. the lights are good, the fuses are good, replaced the switch... still they don't work


Well...if lights are good, fuses are good, and the peplaced switch is good...maybe there is a relay for the headlights in a distrobution panel under the hood.
I'd check that next.

Hope this helps...

HI, I have an 83' Dodge W250. For a couple of weeks if I rotated the light dimmer switch the headlights would turn on. Now, all of a sudden the headlights will not turn on no matter what I do. Any tips...


you have a BAD GROUND wire that is loose and needs attention i would start with a voltmeter and check at the fuse box to see if it is getting power it should have power all the time then i would work my way out outward also see if the switch is out check it with a voltmeter where you turn lights on off dash or whereever it is but it sounds like bad ground i bet the switch is not grounded test it splice the switch wire and ground it to the chassis see if they come on if do then the ground is bad also check make sure switch itself is functioning correctly should be 12 volts power all way with lights hope this helps

Headlight lamp switch wires


as there are a number of wires, and you dont want to short out something else.you shoul probably go to mitchell online and pay a small amount to get access to there repair info for your truck.you could also go to your library if you need to get it for free,it would take someone a lot of time to download this picture and info.if you have no headlights it could also be the combinsation switch behind the steering wheel, the dimmer switch, play with the dimmer switch a little to see if the lights come on, if so remove the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and remove teh two small scews that hold the switch on to replace it.

Headlights go off after about 15 minutes, then come back on and off repeatadly.


check your headlight switch for being intermittent also check the head light ground wires on the front radiator support down to the lights

Where is the headlight relay switch located


doesn't show a relay, just a headlight switch and dimmer switch, the headlight switch has an internal curcuit breaker so if something shorts it want let power out to the dimmer switch. hope this helps.

Even with the switch turned all the way to high, the lights in my instrument cluster are all too dim on my1992 dodge w250 truck.I have bulbs in all of the holes available.This instrument panel seems just...


Two things you need to check. 1)check the grounding. A poor grounding almost always causes any light to be dim including your headlights. 2)Your dimmer switch has a potentiometer which could be corroded or a bad resistor in the switch.
