Check to see if you have a high current fuse and relay box under the hood. Your owner manual should tell you where the fuses & relays are.

It sounds like the high and low switch has gone bad or the relay's to your high or low beams. If my memory serve me right the DRL and low beam relay is located on driver side under the hood you will have to open up that black box to get in there. i try to recall there is at least 3 or 4 relay almost all are look the same but function is different. i know there is a relay used for headlight circuit. due i work on the truck similar year due i have to hook up plow lights. Make sure beam indicator is on low beam.
The five term. to relay hear is what you should read
Pink 12v
Yellow 12v
Purple 12v
Light green/Tan ground
Tan 12v
Do you hear relay click when placed into term?
Also on left side there is the DRL control module has about 11 wires to it this maybe the fault. There is also relays under the dash on the drivers side, it may be there, just having a brain freeze right now in Chicago. >>drive a tour bus also and on tour right now. Keep me posted be glad to get your lights working again, but there is a headlight relay i do know that, just can not remember where it is. Sorry for the memory lost friend.
Have time before i move again. I'm staring at the schematic for a 98 headlight circuit. The feed for both the hi and low beam comes through the DRL module. The factory manual states it is taped to a wiring harness under the left side of the inst panel. I would give it a good sniff test before wasting money on a new one. There is also a protective diode (203) in series with this feed before the DRL relay. It is part of the wiring harness "at RH of steering column support". I have not got a clue what it might look like. Probably a small plastic enclosure similar to one of those add-on fuse holders. It should be cheap.
The DRL module supplies ground signals for the DRL relay and the green DRL dash light. You still need to check for power coming out of the lite sw to the DRL module and to the dimmer sw, all on the yellow wire. Check the "LIGHTING" 50a fuse #8 in the under hood fuse block. Check for power on the yellow wire at the dimmer switch with the head lights on. Diode 203 is in-line with the DRL power feed from the DRL-FOG fuse in the I/P fuse block for the DRL's only and has nothing to do with the headlights working when the headlights are turned on. Oh and there is no relay i can find on this CD for the 98 but should be similar to your 95 since there in the same years of production group. Good luck a sorry if i'm a bit confusing, darn tourist. LOL

My head light on my 1998 Chevy malibu went out but when I replace the bulb it still wont work


When you replaced bulb,all wiring and bulb connector looked good,no corrusion,wires not burned or strayed.With dim lights,means just a little power going to light bulb.Did you check the fuse in fuse box,could be a loose connectoion,check both fuses,left and right headlight.swap them out and see,if fuses are good then,it may be the headlight switch,which cost the most.Here's a link on how to replace.Here's the part.

My headlights have quit working on my 1994 Chevy 1500 pickup. I replaced the headlight switch but they still don't work. The parking lights come on but not the headlights


Try checking both a; your fuses, and b; check your bulbs. You should have two fuse boxes, one under hood and one in or under the dash. Check those for bad, blown or weak fuses. And check your headlights bulbs for them being good and their connection. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may check out your highbeam switch.

95 monte carlo no parking;tail;instrument lights fuses good corrosion in fuse panel box cleaned any ideas?


I have the same exact problem on my '95 Monte. I was told to replace my Headlight Switch which is the unit to the left of the steering wheel that controls the dimmer, parking lights and headlights. Headlight switch goes for about $70 and supposed to take about 1/2 hr to swap out.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck
