1994 Chev Silverado, when switch to high beams headlights cut off, switch back to low beam they come back on. replaced headlight switch about 2 months ago. what could this be?


Hello check when the high beam is on pull the bulb and check to see if you have power or not i have had this problem before and some trucks use a ground to turn them on and some use power the switch could be the wrong one and you might have to add a $6 relay to set a ground so you don't have to replace the switch again

I have a 2001 Silverado. When the high beams are switched on, the low beams go off and frankly the road is dark but the trees look good! Is this correct or do I have a faulty switch on my steering co


You are correct! When the high beam is turned on the low beam should still be active! What type of bulb are you using? Are the high and low beam from the same bulb or separate!

I have no low beam headlights


If the bulbs are good then could be a fuse or relay, high beams and low beams are always on seperate fuses and relays.

I have a 2005 chev impala can i replace my high beams headlights with just low beam lights


NO YOU HAVE TO REPLACE HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS WITH HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS BECAUSE HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS AND LOW BEAM LIGHT BULBS TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF BULBS.WEAR CLEAN LATEX GLOVES HANDLING THE HEADLIGHT BULBS WHICH IS HALOGEN LIGHT BULBS, OIL FROM FINGERS OR HAND WILL CAUSE HALOGEN BULBS TO OVER HEAT BLOW OUT.

My high beams won't turn off, even when my truck is not on. 05' Chevy Silverado 1500


The headlamps are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM) The first thing I would check for is the Headlamp Hi Relay. It is located in the underhood fuse/relay box. If pulling the relay out turns your high beams off, try taking out the low beam relay and putting it in the high beam position. If the headlamps stay off, try plugging the high beam relay into the low beam position. If the low beams now come on, the relay is shorted.

If none of this works, I would recommend scanning your BCM to see if there are any fault codes.

2001 Chev Cavalier LS sedan. Low beam on right works, high beam does not, also high beam on left works, low beam does not. These problems both exist simultaneously. Therefore only one headlamp is on...


Check to make sure both head lamp bulbs are identical, ie; part numbers. If they look similar but are different numbers that can cause this issue.

2001 Chevy 2500hd bright lights won't come in. The dims work.


Try turning on the high beams and see if there is power to the socket where the bulbs plug in. Low beams are one connector and the high should be another. Just go from socket to ground with test light or meter.
