My nissan maxima's headlights go fine on dip and full but when you put them on high beam they just cut off completely any ideas on how to fix this???


Have you replaced the lamps? Most car headlamps have separate elements for low beam and high beam. If both elements are broken, there's your answer. I believe also that the high beams are on a separate fuse to the low beams, so check your fuses to make sure it hasn't blown. Hope this helps!
Cheers, John

Headlight adjustment


The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.
