Question about 1991 Subaru Legacy

Open Question

High beams will not work on my 1991 subaru legacy. Both high beams stopped working at the same time. The blue high beam light is not on on the dash. Bulbs are good and relays seem to be working being that I swapped them with the ac relays under the hood. There is a switch on the top of the steering wheel that turns on and off the side marker lights.

Hi the first thing I check on for anyelectrical problem is a bad ground connection. Follow the headlight wires as far as you can, even when they disappear into a larger covered loom at random places, maybe even right next to each light, you will find a wire or several attached to ground, could be a inner fender, engine, etc.. sometimes a inner fender ground is just a selftapping screw, It may be rusted out or just loose. Headlights work through relays that are also located in the fuse boxes. I assume you have checked both fuse boxes, in the truck and under the hood, good luck, Chuck

Took it to the dealer and they replaced a switch. Part of the recall - no charge. Thank you.

SOURCE: headlight low beam

Test to see if you have voltage at the bulb connector in low beam position. I'd almost bet that if there is no voltage there for the low beams that you have a bad high/low switch.

SOURCE: Left low beam is inoperative. Replaced both bulbs,

I had the same problem with my 2001 Forester. Try this as a low-cost and easy repair attempt: buy brand new fuses and replace both L/H and R/H fuses. If one of your fuses is marginal, your headlights will exhibit this problem. Replacing my headlight fuses with brand new ones solved my situation.

2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SES, the blue high beam indicator in the dash comes on with low beams, and goes off with high beams. The indicator is on at the wrong time! I have tried the following: The turn signal...


It sounds like you are confused about how your headlamp system is supposed to work. The DRL does not run on the High beam circuit, it runs on the low beam circuit. The fog lamps are supposed operate with the park lamps and also with the low beams, not the high beams. From your description, I would say that your system is operating as designed and you are having trouble telling High from Low. (Don't feel bad, that is why high beam indicators were invented in the first place.)
