Hello ive a question i have a 1986 dodge Dakota went to turn on the lights pulled out the light switch have lights inside truck running light no low beams! i have a tilt wheel and my low/high switch i


You have park lights, dash lights, NO Low Beams - I presume you have High Beams? You are probably dealing with a High Beam switch problem - part of the Turn Signal/multifunction switch.
Easy to replace - need Torx screwdrivers - remove the steering column cover and you'll see the switch. Be sure to check the electrical plug for signs of overheated terminals (melted plastic)
If there is damage - getting a harness with connector from the local Auto Salvage Yard is probably the simplest solution - just keep the splice as far away from the switch as possible so tilt action doesn't affect it.

How do you replace high beam switch in 2006 impala


You have to take the steering wheel off. If you have a tilt wheel, you need special tools to get past the lock plate. You have to remove power to the air bag too. Usually those are the green connectors on the drivers side fenderwell.

Where is the headlight relay in the 1998 jimmy? Low beams won't come onat night everything else does. high beams work


There is a headlight relay in the engine compartment fuse box, but its after the headlight switch and before the dimmer switch, so it powers both high and low beam circuits.
I would check the dimmer switch.

Low beams only work part time.


Yes it is the wires in the column I do beleive you can replace it but its not a easy job. Wires go from switch all the way doen the column

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport with no high or low beams. when i pull the signal/wiper arm towards me i get the "passing" high beam but other than that i am running on just fog lights. fuses...


yes, ideas,your headlight switch on the steering column may be going bad. try tilting your steering column up and down while pulling headlight switch on, do your headlights turn on and off by them selfs? careful!! this is a hot or positive wire grounding to metal,which could lead to a fire in the steering column!! do you ever see,or smell smoke coming from the steering wheel? if you do,disconnect the positive cable from your battery immeadiatlly!! the only way to replace the switch is the removal of your steering wheel,if you are'nt mechanically inclined,i recommend you get a 2nd opinion and go forward with your problem as it can lead to a fire in your steering wheel or fuse panel! if all your fuses are good,and only have fog lights,but no low or high beams,but pull back on the turn signal switch,you have a problem with the headlight switch.located on the 'turn signal,high beam,low beam switch' on the steering column. the only way to repair,is replace it. sorry!! can recommend autozone auto parts,advance auto parts or try used parts place.but if you are keeping the car,recommend"new" part replacement. thank you for choosing fixya.com!!if we can be of further assistance,please repost your questions to fixya.com!

1997 Ford Explorer XLT: Both low beam headlights stopped working simultaneously. High beams work and fuses checked OK. I suspect the switch in the turn signal arm since it is common to both. Is this...


Have you checked both low beam bulbs? I have seen both burn out close together.Does this have tilt steering wheel? If it does,remove the plastic steering column cover.Check the wiring to the dimmer/turn switch.The connector ends would pull out of the hard shell connector,when using the tilt feature.The wire harness was mounted too tight,and didn't allow for the angle in tilt.

try taking your tilt steering(steeringwheel) and check which setting its on if the tilt steering is all the way down click it up to the next setting and then try your low beams if that still doesn't work try it one more click up you might have a short or pinched wire in your wheel colum

Turn wheel is lose


The pivot bolts are loose for your tilt column. Requires steering column disassembly to access and tighten bolts. Common GM issue.

1991 camaro switch for you low and high beams


There is a metal rod that runs down the side of steering colmn and pushes on the dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is on the steering column to the left of the steering wheel. You will have to unbolt the column where it connects to the dash and rest it (the steering wheel) on the driver seat to get to the switch.. The switch is adjustable, just loosen the screws and slide it up or down to get proper adjustment.. Hope this helps.
