Question about 1999 Buick Regal

1 Answer

My switch to turn my high beams on never worked, so i would have to hold the lever towards me as i drove. last night though, the high beams turned on and now they wont turn off. not even if i turn the car off. is there any way to fix this without disconnecting the battery every time i want to turn the lights off or spending three hundred dollars for the new part?

Well you could just buy a used steering column from a junk yard and get the switch that way instead of buying a new one,but the switch will have to be replaced

Is Blue Lite For High Beam Supposed T oStay on when clicked?


To clarify, when you pull the turn signal lever towards you, the high beam lights will come on only as long as you hold the lever up. This is the flash to pass feature.
To switch the headlights from low beam to high beam, you push down on the lever towards the dash. Then the high beam lights and the blue indicator light should stay on.

High beam does not stay on


Have you tried moving the lever in the opposite direction? Some cars have the lever set so when someone is coming towards you with their high beams you can tap the lever in the direction you are moving it to flash the oncoming car to lower their high beams and the opposite direction puts them on high until you turn them off. Just a thought.

Headlight problem


Its sounds like the either the headlamp switch or the dimmer switch. The dimmer switch may be separate from the multi-function lever or you may have to get the whole thing replaced.

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. Headlight Problem: Year ago? Switched on high beams, complete darkness (low beams don't work at the same time I've come to find out). Solution: Don't turn on...


ok, first ,, check all the bulbs again, and *** make sure that your hands never touch the actual bulb, these lights will turn the oils from your hands into cooking grease when it comes to these bulbs and cause them to blow out much to early on in their life span, , next,, Pull the light switch ( high beam switch towards you for a quick flash of the head light high beams,, if this doesn't make the high beams come on, your problem is going to be in the switch itself ( what your calling the high beam/turn signal lever) before going to that extreme though,, if you have a junk yard near you, go pull one of the relays off a junked vehicle, and stab it into your system one at a time, it could be something as simple as a relay heating up and disconnecting prematurely due to heat ,, if you don't have a junk yard that you can grab a relay,, here is a link that shows how to check them, But its time consuming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8t25GjZ6i4&NR=1

The headlights are stuck on high beam.


pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.
