    Thank you very much for this. I have heard it might be a relay but you are the first to tell me where it is. Thanks again.

The hi/low switch just sends current to toggle the relay. It is the relay that actually changes it from hi to low beam.
So the relay is probably bad.
It is plugged into the fuse block, along with the AC, fuel pump, flasher relays.
You can tell when you have the right one, because the high beams will go out when you unplug it.
There is also the odd coincidental change both low beam filaments burned out, but not likely.
You could tell if the relay was working also by listening or feeling the relay while someone else clicks the hi/low switch repeatedly.
You can also just look at the wiring diagram on the side of the relay, in order to know how to insert a shunt that will give you low beam all the time, with out having to replace the relay, as a temporary fix.

One low beam head lights will not work, high beam works though


check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse

1994 pontiac grand am high beams work but no low beams, possible relay issue?


Sounds like it's in the actuator itself - the part that you move on the steering wheel or dash to put the high beams on or the headlight switch itself.. Find the ground wire on the headlights and run a new wire from that directly to the body somewhere so it gets a good ground, or directly to the neg side of the battery.

High beam headlights stuck on replaced switch same problem


It can be issue with headlight switch,but as its already been replaced.Try disconnecting high beam headlight wiring from headlight assembly and reconnect direct external wire from headlight switch to headlight assembly,then by switch see if headlight is getting off and turning on or not.

2001 grand caravan low beam light not working. i chang bulb already i check fuse already.


Hi Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch.
Thanks for using Fixya.

05 Jeep Wrangler High Beams Work, Low Beams dont


There are no relays for the headlights. Your problem could be from the headlight switch. You would have to check and see if you have power coming out of the switch on the low beam side. Check with a test light.

High beams wont turn on.


First place to start is with headlight switch. I did have a case many years ago when both high beams were blown out at once, but this is rare. When you have the headlight switch out, jump power from te low beams to the high beam contacts. If high beams come on, replace switch.

What would cause both low beam headlights to go out at the same time? i have replaced the headlights and they still dont work.


The headlight high/low beam switch assembly.96 Safari has the turn signal stem as the high/low beam switch.Removal of the steering wheel is necessary to get to the switch assembly for replacement.
