Weird ! If each one has it's own fuse I would take out one fuse, flip the light switch so only one of them moves, then put the fuse back in and they should then be in sync. Check it out.
Might actually work. I have a Miata but I never had that happen.

Good Luck

Why does 97 miata headlight retractor stay in upright position?


Common problem with any brand of car with power headlights. Probably the motor. You could inspect the unit to verify that it moves freely. Check on the Miata forum.

My 2000 Toyota Corolla headlights will not turn on during the night, and stay on during the day


Your Corolla has daytime running lights (DRLs). A photocell determines whether it is day or night. Your DRLs turn on automatically in daytime without you operating the light control ("headlight") switch. Your DRLs are actually your headlights on low beam. At night, the photocell senses it is dark and disables the DRLs. When you set the light control ("headlight") switch to HEAD, the head relay closes and the headlights should turn on. Since they don't, I suggest opening the engine room junction block and checking the 40A MAIN fuse and the 10A LEFT HEAD (UPPER) and RIGHT HEAD (UPPER) fuses. In engine room relay block 5, check the 10A LH-LWR HEAD and RH-LWR HEAD fuses. Replace any blown fuses and the headlights should be working normally again

One of my turn signals wont work, both my headlights only work on highbeams


replace the high beam switch which causes this problem. Also clean the terminals for the directional light bulb. That will cause a negative continuity to the bulb

I have a 2000 Mazda Miata. The head lights work on bright but both go off on dim. I was thinking it maybe a fuse. any help.


Sounds like both dim filaments are broken.
But before you go off and buy a new headlight, try removing the headlight and run a positive lead to each side of the hi and low connectors. Negative is the center pin, like this -_- if dim works with a battery, then you need to replace your dimmer switch. If not, its the headlight itself.

I lost the manual for my 1995 miata and i need to change the busted right headlight. can you please show me how. thanks.


There should be an access panel at the back of the headlight assembly. Remove the cover and replace the halogen bulb. Pretty easy job. Some of the covers screw off.

I need the name of the actual switch on the wheel


You knew the name of it, it's in your question, highbeam switch! Ahhh... the good old days... the highbeam switch was foot operated, remove 2 screws, unplug wire, that was all there was to fixing it.

1999 Mazda Miata Headlight Failure


Notice how your headlights are protected under the hood by a suspiciously large rubber cover? Miatas hate humidity and condensation, from head to toe, including the headlights. I lost a headlight, was pulled over by a state trooper who told me to change it, and tested the brights all in one night. Of course, the brights worked, because they are actuated from a different circuit on the wiring harness that connects to the headlight through that massive rubber seal. If any amount of humidity or condensation has occurred, especially during a weather change, I cannot stress that enough, the first thing to fail is the normal headlight setting. I was already going to switch over to high-intensity bulbs, so I had a good excuse to crack open the headlight assembly (otherwise I wouldn't dare--Miata headlights are nearly impossible to change with a large pair of hands). I separated the old bulbs from their wires and proceeded to clean the connectors of the wires with an approved electrical connection cleaning solution (go to AutoZone). I then applied the conducting gel to the bulb to avoid corrosion and secure against future problems with condensation and was good to go. Make sure to give yourself many many hours to decipher the bulb assembly, as it was designed by someone whose sole intent is to make the job 150 times more difficult. Otherwise, cleaning the wiring assembly is a cinch.
