This sounds like a problem with the Hi/Lo switch. I think yours is down the column--you pull on the wand and a rod down the column clicks the switch, right? Pull the connector off the switch and check continuity in the switch with an ohmmeter. 2 terminals should have continuity in one position, and when clicked, 2 different terminals should have continuity. Please let me know if this isn't it or you have more questions. My second guess would be the headlight switch itself. The Hi/Lo switch looks like this:

2008 gmc truck Low beams quit working. I have High beams and running lights only. whats possible fix?


Are the bulbs good?

If your low and high beams are on the same bulb, then the low beam elements have blown even though the high beam still works, you need two new bulbs.

Headlights on my 1998 gmc 1500 cargo van will not work. I have checked the battery connection and do not know what the problem is...Please help


If your truck will start then it isn't the battery connection. If both quit working at the same time then id suspect a bad switch. However you might want to also check the bulbs. Also check that both low beams and High beams don't work. Always check the obvious first, like the fuses.

So what do you see come on besides the parking lights? Do you see the high beams come on when you turn them on, do you see low beams or can you see the day time running lights come on (they are the ones that are closest to the grill). What have you done or checked so far?

2008 gmc truck, Low beams quit working. I have High beams and running lights only


It's probably unlikely that both bulbs would go out at the same time, but the first thing I would do is replace at least one of the bulbs with a new bulb.

If that's not the problem, there is a problem with the electrical circuit. There are relays that control the headlights, and the switch itself could have gone bad.

My GMC truck 1993 Sierra just had new headlights installed. But the high beams point into the trees. It seems both the high and low beam lights are in one enclosure. Can I adjust these down?


Yes you can. There is an adjustment screw at the top of each head lamp and you just turn them out or counter clockwise and the beam will come down. You may also have to adjust them side to side also. There is an adjustment screw as well.
