There are 3 wires going to each headlamp,a ground,a low beam,and a high beam.. cut the high beam wire, and do both sides .and if you want high beams to work,wire both sides to a single throw double pole switch for the high beams to turn on and off.

Regular headlamps or HID ? Check the HDLP LO/HID relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Will be marked on the inside of the lid . Do you know what a BCM is ? body control module. Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .
DTC 2575 00: Headlamp Low Beam Control Circuit
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the low beam relay.
  2. Ignition ON, verify that a test lamp does not illuminate between the control circuit terminal 87 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If the test lamp illuminates, test the control circuit for a short to voltage.

  4. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal 30 and ground.
  5. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.

  6. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal 86 and ground.
  7. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for an open/high resistance.

  8. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the inoperative low beam headlamp.
  9. Ignition OFF, scan tool OFF, exterior lamps OFF, test for less than 5.0 ohms between the ground circuit terminal B and ground.
  10. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.

  11. Connect the harness connector at the inoperative low beam headlamp.
  12. Connect a 40A fused jumper wire between the B+ circuit terminal 30 and the control circuit terminal 87. Verify the low beam headlamps are activated.
  13. ?‡'
    If the low beam headlamps do not activate, test the control circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the inoperative low beam headlamp.

  14. Connect a test lamp between the B+ circuit terminal 86 and the control circuit terminal 85.
  15. Command the Low Beams ON and OFF with a scan tool. The test lamp should turn ON and OFF when changing between the commanded states.
  16. ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always ON, test the control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.


    ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always OFF, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.

  17. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the low beam relay.

When dimmer switch is turned to high, the two high beam only light up, the low / high main lamp goes off.


It is normal that when you select high beam that the two high beam lights come on and the low beams switch off. the light position should show high beam
It goes off on low beam when the high beam lights go off and the low beams light up
If the light is reversed then check the wiring to the light
You didn't mention what car it is but if it has a light module then the problem may be in it.

When I click the headlights to bright all of the lights go out. I have already replaced the switch in the stearing column. What is wrong.


Try disconnecting one of your headlights and click on the high beams. If it goes to high without any other problems, then the problem is in the other headlight high beam circuit. If all the lights go out, then the problem lies in the high beam circuit of the headlight you disconnected. You can verify this by reconnecting the first headlight and disconnecting the other one. There is most likely a short to ground in one of the high beam circuits.

If you have daytime running lights. That is, your headlights stay on automatically. You will need to check the daytime running light relays. There may be four of them to check. One of them grounds the high beams.

I have a 2005 dodge caravan. the headlights have


On the van you have a high beam fuse and relay. On the low beam you also have a fuse and relay. Check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse controlling the low beam lights. If you do not find a blown fuse have some one to turn the key on and turn on the high beam lights> During this time locate the low beam headlight relay and place your finger on top of relay, have the other person to switch from high beam to low beam lights. You should feel a click in the relay when they make the switch from high to low beam. If not replace the relay and the problem should go away. Hope this will help you.

The main/high beam relay/switch must be stuck on high presuming the high beam stalk selector does not operate. Probably needs replacement.
