My left low beam headlight is doesn't work. I have changed the bulb and relay. It does come on for a split second once in a while when I turn the ignition on and off.

No Low beam headlights


Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits using a DMM - digital multi-meter ?
Principles of Operation
The headlamp switch is supplied power at all times from the smart junction box (SJB). When the headlamps switch is placed in the headlamps ON position, power is routed to the multifunction switch. Depending on the position of the multifunction switch, power is routed through one of two circuits to the SJB. If the multifunction switch is in the high beam position, power is routed through SJB fuse 12 (15A) and then on to the high beam headlamps. If the multifunction switch is in the low beam position, power is routed through SJB fuses 11 (10A) and 15 (10A) to the LH and RH headlamps, respectively. Power to the multifunction switch is available at all times for the flash-to-pass feature.

Is there B+ voltage at fuse's # 11 & 15 with headlamps on an the multifunction switch is in the low beam position ? If not check for B+ voltage at the multifunction switch . Free wiring diagrams here

2005 buick lesabre low beams not working at night daytime running lights work hi beams work dimmer switch works relays and fuses are good. what do I check now and how?


It's the dimmer switch. Which is called the multifunction switch or turn signal switch. Just because it clicks, doesn't mean the it is working properly. If you click and the high beams come on, then click it again and have no low beams, replace the switch. Daytime running lights are controlled by the Body control module.

Have a 91 Ford Explorer. Front headlights having issues. Good bulbs I believe. Sometimes when switching between high and low beams on the column, lights would go oput for a moment then back on....


Sounds like it has possibly got a defective multifunction switch,which is part of the turnsignal lever/high beam lever switch. Aside from physically diagnosing the circuit I would say replacing the multifunction switch may take care of your problem.


Hope this helps

High beams arent working


Sounds like the high beam switch is bad. It is located in conjunction with your turn signal.

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

98 ford lariat. Headlights stopped working. running lights come on and brake lights and turn signals. checked all fuses under dash and under hood, pulled out headlight switch and it looks fine. note only...


Is this both the high beams and low beams that do not work ?

If you checked all 3 fuses with a meter ( with the headlamp in Low position for both low beam fuses or in high for the high beam fuse ), the next items to test are the MFS ( MultiFunction Switch ) and the main headlamp switch ( test not look at it ).

It is most likely the multifunction switch has a bad contact, also pull and check the main hdlight switch for burned connectors.
