My 1996 Suburban low beams will not turn on. When column lever/switch is pulled forward the hi-beams turn on, when the lever is pulled again the low-beams don't turn on. Lights were replaced, still doesn't work.

How do I replace the high/low beam switch in my 98 Suburban?

The switch is bolted to the left side of the steering column under the dash. Make sure you have good lighting look under and pull the leaver as you would to turn high beams on. The switch is connected by a metal rod that runs up the steering column. You'll see it moving. Use the proper tool to remove the two bolts that bolt the swith to the column. Unplug the wire harness and angle the switch and it will release from the metal rod. Do not bend the rod! Be safe don't do this with your legs sticking out into traffic. Reverse the steps to reinstall. Good luck

I can't get my brights to stay on without having to hold them on . What might be the issue

I find that to energise the high beam momentarily (to warn oncoming motorists) I pull back on the switch lever but to change to full beam on I push down on the lever until it clicks as the low /high beam is the back and forward motion of the light switch

$35 sounds right for the lever. It definitely sounds like it's your lever acting up as the contact seems to be stuck

Lights go off when i turn on the high beam

Pull your lever back if the high beams work that way you need a new high/low beam switch, if they do not you need to replace headlight bulbs.

The headlights are stuck on high beam.

pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.
