According to Autozone you will find the Headlight relay "Under hood, driver side, front engine area, driver side of headlight housing, mounted on fenderwell"
Once you find the relay, with the engine off - turn on the lights and have someone change them from high to low and back a few times - if the relay is working you should be able to hear it clicking as it changes. If you do not hear it clicking remove the relay - take it to your parts store and they should be able to find a reaplacement

  3. Expose the sunload sensor to a bright light.

  4. Turn the headlamp switch to the OFF position.
  5. With a scan tool, observe the Head Lamp Switch parameter in the Dash Integration Module (DIM) Inputs data list.
Does the scan tool indicate that the Head Lamp Switch parameter is OFF?
I would think you probably don't have a GM Tech 2 factory scan tool , this is a very involved diagnostic flow chart an you can't diagnose it very easily without the factory scan tool . You could replace parts an get lucky . I would start with the high beam relay in the under hood fuse / relay center . Do you know what a relay is , not to talk down to you because I don't what you know . The relay is energized by the DIM - dash integrated module . You may want to take this to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer !

Indicators, headlight, high beam, Heater showing strange behavior. Can you please suggest what could be the possible reason for it . BCM or Multi Function switch?


Hooking up an OBD2 reader will tell you right away if the BCM is shot or BCM. Take it to advanced auto or O'Riley's they will hook up a an OBD2 reader and tell you. Sounds like a faculty PCM and BCM to me or just faulty PCM since you've replaced the Body Control Module already.

Fludic verna headlight is very poor???chould i add cutout and use more 100/90 w bulb to get more light...which cutout brand is good


The standard lights are quite good enough if the reflectors and lens are really shiny and not partially rusted. Large bulbs run the risk of melting the plastic reflectors costing new head lights. Adjusting the head lights to correct beam height will also help. You can use relays in the system. Disconnect the wires to the back of the bulbs and attach then to the trigger pins of the relay (4 relays-2 high beam L+R and 2LBeam L+R). Run fused power wires from the battery to the power pin of the relay and out to the beam pin of the bulb. earth the bulbs as normal. The operation works like this You switch on the lights to low beam and the power from the switch energises the relay and drops in the contacts which allows power from the battery ,through the bulb low beam to earth. Switching to high beam energises the relay and allows power from the battery through the relay and out to the high beam part of the bulb through to earth. You have full 12 volts to the lights and reduced current through the light switch. 4 relays --1 each for each light low and 1 each for each light high. jump the wire from each beam position between relays of the same light so that they work off the one wire from the switch

My 2002 intrepid head lights are not working high beams do work tho and all other lights what could be wrong?


You may need a shop manual to fix this.
The headlight switch circuit involves high beam and low beam relays, and a fuse for each circuit, and the body computer controls it all.
You would need to know if the low beam fuses have power and the low beam relay is working.

Its reversial for me my high beams wont work what


Good day:
the following is what you can do to test to see whats going on
turn on the headlights,put in high position
2.leave light in high, disconnect the head light dimmer switch, connect a fused jumper between head light relay supply voltage circuit of the dimmer switch and the control circuit of the head light relay. if the high beams come on then replace the dimmer switch, if the high beams don,t come on then.
3.use a fused jumper across the battery positive voltage supply circuit and the switched high beam voltage supply circuit. if the high beam come on now replace the head light relay, if the high beams don't come on then you will have to replace the LH I/P fuse block. I would most likely say that it's the relay just because of the year. I gave you a lot here I hope this helps

Cheers

High-low beams not working


Check for headlight relay and fuse. Some cars have separate circuits for head light flasher and normal high/low beam. From your description, I would suspect a bad connection to/from relay or relay itself.

I have a honda city 2001 car. my headlights dont work on low beam but ok on high beam. please help


first thing you want to do is Check your fuses. and if you dont have a bad fuse see if you have a low beam head light relay. if there is you can take the relay to a parts store and have it checked to make sure it is good free of charge. but if it is bad just get a new one and replace it. and see if this helps. but it could also be a bad ground. or the head light dimmer switch its self i hope this helps you a little.
please rate me if you would
thank you
