Get the plug replaced. Corrosion on one of the terminals will do this. It is quite possible the other plug that needs replaced. If the right plug isn't allowing the bulb to receive the electric, it will continue in the circuit until it is able to flow.

Headlights not working even when pulling out main switch but pull back on multiswitch


Its supposed to do that.
You are using the "pass" option where you flash your bright lights to let someone know you are going to pass.
Depending on the make model and year, the problem could be the headlight switch or even the dimmer switch.

Where can I find a 2005 jeep wrangler highbeam sensor switch?


What you need is a headlight switch and you can get them at just about any auto parts store.

No highbeam


Is the headlight out?
Did you check the connections/wiring to the headlight bulb?
Did you check the fuse?

Is it just one highbeam?
Or are both highbeams on both sides of the car out?

My problem is when I turn on the headlights, the parking lights comes but not the headlights, but when I hold the turn signal switch / highbeam to the rear the driving lights comes on but I will have to...


you might just have two bad low beam headlights, I have seen it before. Only other problem would be the switch that turns on the headlights is bad. Best way is to Test power going into the headlight when the low beams are turned on to rule out the switch.

Headlights go out


If your Highbeam Switch is on your streering colum (turn signal lever) Thats where I would start too look! It could be the wires to the highbeam switch. I had that happen on my ford. But if the highbeam switch is on the floor, check for a bad circut connection and if that checks ok it might be your main headlight switch! Even though you may not loose your highbeams, your main headlight power still runs through that highbeam switch, and being on the colum thats why the would start to function when you move the shifter.

1998 Volvo lowbeams will not come on. Tried replacing the headlight fuse, light control relay, and the turn signal/highbeam arm....still nothing. Am I missing something somewhere? The parking lights and...


If your high beams come on only when you hold the lever, and you have no headlights otherwise, i would suggest it has to be the dimmer switch that is faulty. First, though, use a test light to see if you have power to the low beams. Just pull the bulb out, and test in the socket. If you have power there, the problem is just the bulbs. No... they didn't both burn out at once, but you don't notice until they are both gone. You meet cars all the time with one headlight. When the second one goes, they over think the problem.
The fact that your dimmer switch has to be held to get any headlights would lead me to believe it's the dimmer switch that is faulty.

My left headlight highbeam light works and the lowbeam don't why


the filament on the low beam burnt out. but the high beam didn't. You have a filament for each. 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam in the same light bulb. You need a new head light.
