Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights

The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

My 2001 chevy silverado's low beams don't work. I

The wiring for the low beams would run not to the ignition, but to the dimmer switch. I don't know what color they are, but sounds like you are at the source of the problem, if the low beams quit when the column is let down. Pull the trim pieces off the steering column and examine the wires going to the dimmer switch. You may see some wiring insulation scraped off. It could be a bad dimmer switch, but check the wiring first.
Good luck.

Only my highbeams work. Low beams are not working at all. All parking lights are working.

this could be the headlight dimmer switch not switching the power back to the low beam side of the the switch,when operating the dimmer switch do you hear a click that the switch will make when changing from low to high,it you don`t this indicteds a bad switch also.make sure the low beams haven`t burnt out also(it happens)this can be done by powering up the low beam filament and suppling a ground to the ground on the bulb itself(direct feeding of the bulb).if your not sure which filament you are checking out move the power wire to the other terminal and note the difference in brightness.

Click headlights to low beam and no lights work on high beam

I'm not sure exactly what your problem is. When you "click" your lights to low beam, your high beams should not work. But if your low beams work when you "click" them on, but your high beams don't work when you "click" them on, you either have a blown fuse, bad relay or high beam elements burned out on both lamps. (Not so unusual) Possibly a bad "dimmer" stalk switch or bad wiring, too, but a little less likely.

1996 ford explorer head light has high beam but no low beam. Im wondering if it is a ground that is loose or maybe my dimmer switch is failing

The components involved in your headlamp system vary considerably depending on whether your vehicle is equipped with "Auto Lamps", "Daytime Running Lamps" and/or "Fog Lamps". In any of these cases, both the High Beam and the Low Beam elements share the same grounds. Yes, it could be the dimmer switch. It could also be the Daytime running lamp module or the Headlamp Switch or the Auto Lamp Control Unit. It is also possible that you simply have both of your Low Beam Headlamp elements burned out or have bad sockets where they connect to the wiring harness.

What would cause the headlights to go out but the high beams work

Hello there:
you might want to check the wiring to see if any of the wires are loose or frayed or any bulbs may be burned out or loose
also your dimmer switch may be starting to fail you
best regards michael

I check the fuses ok high beams ok low beams not working on both lamps

Dimmer switch or 2 lamp burn out. It does happen. Do the high beams go off when you dim ? If so, more than likely 2lap burn out.

High beams work but low beams do not. Fuses seem to be good


I would start with the dimmer switch if you know the lights are good dimmer switches do this you will lose your high beam or you will lose your low beam when they go bad.
