Is Blue Lite For High Beam Supposed T oStay on when clicked?


To clarify, when you pull the turn signal lever towards you, the high beam lights will come on only as long as you hold the lever up. This is the flash to pass feature.
To switch the headlights from low beam to high beam, you push down on the lever towards the dash. Then the high beam lights and the blue indicator light should stay on.

How do you turn off high beams on a 1992 buick lesabre


To change the headlights from low beam to high or high to low, pull the turn signal lever all the way toward you. Then release it. When the high beams are on, this blue light on the instrument panel also will be on.
This works for a '93 LeSabre.
If not this, older cars often had a foot switch for bights-far upper left on the floor.

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport with no high or low beams. when i pull the signal/wiper arm towards me i get the "passing" high beam but other than that i am running on just fog lights. fuses...


yes, ideas,your headlight switch on the steering column may be going bad. try tilting your steering column up and down while pulling headlight switch on, do your headlights turn on and off by them selfs? careful!! this is a hot or positive wire grounding to metal,which could lead to a fire in the steering column!! do you ever see,or smell smoke coming from the steering wheel? if you do,disconnect the positive cable from your battery immeadiatlly!! the only way to replace the switch is the removal of your steering wheel,if you are'nt mechanically inclined,i recommend you get a 2nd opinion and go forward with your problem as it can lead to a fire in your steering wheel or fuse panel! if all your fuses are good,and only have fog lights,but no low or high beams,but pull back on the turn signal switch,you have a problem with the headlight switch.located on the 'turn signal,high beam,low beam switch' on the steering column. the only way to repair,is replace it. sorry!! can recommend autozone auto parts,advance auto parts or try used parts place.but if you are keeping the car,recommend"new" part replacement. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!if we can be of further assistance,please repost your questions to fixya.com!

My light problem is i have low beam on right side no low on left side i turn highs on and right side goes out and high on left turns on then when back to lows beams and i pull turn signal to flash high...


If you have separate bulbs for the low and high beams(4 light system), if you pull the turn signal and hold it, all 4 lights will stay on until you release the turn signal. You need to replace the bright bulb on the right side and the low bulb on the left side. If your headlights only have one bulb on each side, then you will have to replace both of them to get everything to work.

No high beams, problem is not multifunction switch


Check the headlight switch to make sure that the connections or internal connections aren't corroded. This was a major problem for older fords, so it would be good to check it anyway.

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.
