High beams do not work on 2006 Kia Spectra. Blubs are good.

    Multi purpose switch is good. Relay's are good. Checked the Highbeam relay block and no signal present to energize the relay once the high beams are turned on via the switch (low beams turn off as expected). Completed the circuit in the relay box, and hi beams work. Guess it must be a broken wire after the switch to the relay block.

Are you sure that the bulbs are good?, if so then more than likely it is in tour baem (turn signal) switch on your steering columb. tou can start backwards by pulling your headlamp plug and turning on your lamps you should have power from the power wire to 1 prong (contact) then when you switch to high beams you should have power to 2 prongs. if so then check your high beam low beam switch when you pull back on it does it feel like it is switching (a slight click) if not it probably is not switcing at that point. (bad switch) there may also be a relay that does the switching check your wiring manual to see if there is a relay for you headlamp system. and have it checked. (it should be free at your local auto parts dealer) IF NOT DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO IT YOURSELF OR YOU MAY BURN IT OUT IF YOU PUT TOO MUCH POWER TO IT . check for voltage input and output from your local dealer. then put ONLY that amount of power to the input side and check that there is power coming out of the output side. if there is a groung prong THEN GROUND IT FIRST. BEFORE PUTTING POWER TO IT.

04 Kia Spectra, My high beams aren't working!

bulbs have gone. They are fitted in pairs, they run at the same time, so often they fail at the same time. When one goes, it causes a surge to the other and takes it with it. Check the bulbs with a meter or with wires and the battery.

Headlights only work in high beam

You probably need to replace the light bulb. Good luck with that. In my experience, the battery may have to be removed, you need to have thin hands, or some panels have to be loosened.

I have a 2003 kia spectra. Can the headlights be adjusted. On low and high beams they seem to be set to low. I feel they should shine out futher to be able to see more while driving at night

the headlights can be adjusted but you can't adjust the high & low beam separately, you can only adjust the light as a unit unless you have a separate high & low beam lights ( twin lights) ......hope this helps......cheers.

The dim lights don't work on my 2006 Kia Spectra, but the brights do. What could be the problem?

Assume you're referring to 'low beams' not working? and 'high beams' are? Both circuits run they're own relays and fuses, check owners manual for locations, could be faulty relay (check by swapping with high beam relay) or blown fuse. Also find occasionally, both globes blown, high and low beam filaments in same globe

I have a 2002 Kia Spectra ls, why does the headlight bulbs keep blowing? My husband checked the ground, said it was ok. He replaced only the low beam bulbs, to see if the problem was with the high beams,...

Check the socket to see if voltage is spiking over 13.5 volts with a voltmeter while revving engine . Charging could be bad.Look for bare wires around the assembly as well.

Tail light out 2005 kia spectra

Most cars these day's have separate bulbs for each function ie: tail, turn, stop & back up. Turn the light's on & double check the position of the bulb on the side that is working and go from there, also before you pull your hair out check your fuse's because some model's have a fuse for each light ie: Lt low beam, Lt high beam ect... hope this help's you. Good luck!
