Either the low beams are burned out ,or the dimmer switch is bad.

2008 2500 HD 6.0 the low beam headlights quit and the DRL quit but my high beams work help


There is a sensor in the center of your dash for the DRL..Sometimes the sensor can fail or just accidently covered with papers or dirt contamination....You can see the small sensor in top of dash...Of course check all fuses and relays after checking the sensor....Some people don't know about the DRL Sensor..

DRL not working on mazda cx-9. Where should I look? They work fine on high beam


The high and low beams work through the turn signal switch. Replace it. If you don't have low beams. It's not the DRL.

Both low headlight beams went out at the same time but the high beams work just fine


Well, you could conceivably have 2 burned out low beam elements. It could be caused by a bad dimmer switch. If your vehicle is equipped with Daytime Running Lamps (DRL), it could be caused by a bad DRL Relay. It could also be caused by a break in the WHITE/BLUE wire between the headlamp switch and the DRL Relay. The voltage needs to be checked at each of these components to determine which is the cause.

I have a 99 gmc sierra 1500 extended cab, my drl's work, but when i turn on to the headlights they do not come on any brighter than the drls. this just happened suddenly one night. high beams work fine, i...


check the multi function switch.where the wires go into the switch may be melted.the low beam feed wire is probably melted off.try tilting the steering wheel.you may find they come on at a curtain spot.this is a common problem.happened on my 2000 chevy truck.

My 2002 gmc Sierra's low beams will not work but my drl high beams and fogs work fine....


check your headlamp switch.is your switch on the dash or part of the turn signal switch.gm have a thing with plastic switches and metal contacts these switchs have a tendency to melt..also check for grounds.was the vehicle in a accident involving the front end.if you changed your headlamps to 80/100 watts bulbs.the circuit breaker may not work hence the switch melts.

Low Beam headlights don't work. High Beam work fine and diriving lights work as well.


hi from uk provided you have checked bulbs are ok? then this fault may be the relay for the low /dipped beam has gone faulty if you check h/book you may find location of low beam relay there is relay for high and one for low beams if you find both relays ? try switching? this will confirm relay fault if you then have low beam but no high ? b4 you buy new relay other than tis the other possible fault may be the actual di/high beam stick control ?

Day time running light problem


The problem with the DRL issue describd in the above posts is the DRl module(it needs to be replaced). The buzzing relay and intermittent on/off of passenger side DRl are indicators that the module needs to be replaced.

DRL and High Beam do not work right on Honda Accord EX 1998


Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.
