Hi, this is a common problem the only way you can solve this is to get the switched replaced, this is a faulty part on your car so your going to need to get it replaced, once its replaced you will have no problems turning the lights on and off when you need to.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Headlight problems

If the lights work when moving or holding the high beam switch there is a good possibility the switch itself is bad. The switch is located at the base of the steering collumn. the handle actually only operates a rod that goes into the switch to push it down to switch from high to low beam. The switch is not expensive and easily accessable although you sorta have to stand on your head to reach it.

Sounds strange but make sure your low beam bulbs are good [ they have an average life span- they may have both burnt out at the same time ]. This happened to me once in the 1980's with a VW rabbit.

2000 Chevy Monte Carlo has the highbeams stuck on

hello, you might be able to spray a little shot wd-40 in the switch itself, do not turn headlights on right away, let it set for few minutes, you can try to see if it will click to high beam and low. i have a 84 monte that did this, the switch gets dirt and stuff in it, starts sticking sometimes.

I have a 2004 montecarlo ss the headlights turn off while driving at night sometimes for a second or for a couple of minutes.

is it while you are using your high beams, my is doing the same thing, tried wiring a toggle switch to suppement the turn/wiper stick instead of buying a new one. Worked great until i activated the momentary high beams while the switch was in the high beam position. Then power was cut to the entire car. Its like there was no batter. Can't find a single popped fuse or bad breaker, and the batter is good. Not sure what happened, according to the hanes maual i was wiring in accorance with, nothing should of happened like this.

My headlights on my 2000 monte carlo does not work

Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.
