Question about 1993 Nissan NX

1 Answer

I only get highbeams, not lowbeams. Daytime running lights work fine. People at Canadian Tire say it is most likely the relays. I lack the technical know how to know what those look like or where to find them in my engine. The car was in an accident about 10- months back (previous owner rear ended another driver) and the right lowbeam went out a few months after that, then the left lowbeam a few months later.

Power for the headlights goes directly from the battery to the headlight switch, then to the dip/flash switch on the column.

The fact that the high beams are working but not the low beam says the problem is somewhere between the switch on the column and the headlights.

Either the switch has failed, or there's a broken wire or open connector in the wiring harness.

The wiring for the low beams is a blue wire with red tracer. Check the wires coming off the steering column with a voltmeter to see if the problem is with the switch or the wiring forward of the steering column.

If you have power at the connector harness coming off the switch, then keep working forward to find the open circuit.

My 2001 s10 drivers side low beam headlight seems to work on automatic during the day , but not work at night on auto or switch on ?


The daytime lights run off the highbeam circuit on reduced voltage. If the lowbeam is not operational, take a look at the plug at the headlight and inspect for looseness. If tight, inspect for a constant ground and a 12v power supply with the headlights turned on low beam at the headlight connector. repair a necessary

Low beam headlights sometime will not go on, or go off after using highbeams.


low beam not working could be relay or bad contact at stork control. Fog lights should only work with park lights on. not supposed to be on with headlights like in the movies. This is illeagle in australia to have head lighs and fog lights on together as well as being dangerous to other motorists

03 ion lowbeams wont work highbeams do have


The dark blue wire is the ground wire for the low beams and your pink is the ground for the high beams.

When you touch that wire to ground the lights should come on. If not there is a short/break in the wire somewhere

Double check your pink wire to confirm that it is supposed to be a ground signal.

2004 trailblazer.. running lights go off while driving.. come back after allowing them to cool. Every thing else ok. (day time lights and brights) This just started and has done it twice this week..


If your lowbeam headlights are going out at the same time as your running lights, but the highbeams are working fine, you should check the relay, which is in the fuse block under the hood. The relay is marked "HDM." You can swap it with the relay next to it to eliminate or prove it as a problem. Make sure the key is shut off when you are making the swap.

My highbeam headlights won't come on...we have checked the fuses and they are all good.


If you have USA Halogen lights or canadian model with daytime driving lights, check the headlight relay in relay box under hood.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check and let me know if you have questions.

Both Headlights Work On Lowbeam But Not On Highbeam.


First identify if your day running lights (DRL) are working. The DRL and high beams will work on the same relay. If your DRL are working, but not your high beams, you may need to replace your high beam relay which is found in the fuse panel under the hood of the engine at the right back corner; near the firewall, and passenger tire strut mount. If there is also a problem with your DRL with the high beams, its likely the DRL relay which can be found tucked under the dash.

There's usually a cover that says "relays", "fuses", etc. Lift the cover and look underneath, it should label the relays. If not, consult a manual or repair book. Try swapping similar relays from know working accessories if you don't have a new one handy.

perhaps i missed something here... lowbeams and daytime lights are about the same.... be that as it may... the merely obvious thing is that the low beams are burnt out.... next thing would be that the relay for the day time lights could be defective... it's often mounted on the firewall.

Daytime safty lights


Sounds like the bulbs need replacement. The high beams are separate from the low beam/daytime running lights.
