    I just fixed the problem !! It was the aftermarket blue lights that short circuit the highbeams and the foglights. I replaced the headlight bulbs with standard 9004. Both my highbeams and foglights work now !! Whewww !!!

Replace the multifunction switch (light switch) on the column. This should cure the issue. If you ned instructions on repair, let me know.

How fix 2009 Honda Fit lowbeam headlights that both stopped working at same time?


Agree that both shouldn't fail together.
I suggest change one anyway, never hurts to carry a spare.

Lowbeam headlights wont work, brake lights are out and check engine light is on...changed th dimmer switch, no luck


For the low beam problem, Swap relays 45 & 46 in the underhood fuse panel. Relay 46 is for the Low Beams. If that fixes the light, replace the relay that cam out of position 46.
Since the high mounted brake light is working, that indicates that the brake switch is good. You need to check the bulbs in the rear tail light assembly, if they are good, check fuse #34.

I got a 2004 chevy trailblazer 4.2l. DRL/lowbeams don't work. All other lights (park lights, high beams, turn signal) work. Driver side DRL bulb blew. Both went out at the same time. Replaced both...


If it is anything like my 04 GMC Sierra, there is a relay panel under the hood. In that underhood box where you found the fuses, there are also relays. They pop out (the diagram is on the lid of the box). After the GMC hit 200k, the relays started going out. The high beams are on a relay, the lowbeams are on a different one. You can pop one out and replace it with the horn or foglight relay if you want to check it out. I am betting that the DRL bulb just happened to go at the same time. Mine go out regularly..I would say around every 10-15k miles. I don't know if this helps, it is just something that I have run across with a similar vehicle.

When I turn on my headlights the lowbeam lights will not come on. I switched the highbeam and lowbeam wires to see if it was the wires or the lights. the lowbeam lights came on when i put the high beam...


It is either the light switch or the headlight relay, I would say first go for the relay as it carries the actual load of the lights. It will not be a fuse, the headlights are fused individually.

2006 grand prix low beam headlight do not work, high beams work fine?


I'm having the same issue. I have changed the bulbs and fuses. I can't find a relay but I don't think that is the issue. Some other people have suggest the Dimmer Control Switch. I am working on that. Please let me know what you find out.

1999 grand am. low beams dont work. i checked all fuses and relays. ideas????


Lets start by checking the fog lamps. Turn the headlights on, switch to low beam, turn on the fog lights and see if they come on. If the foglights don't work, then you don't have voltage on the low beam circuit to the BCM. If you do have foglights, then the low beam circuit is providing voltage to the BCM.
By determining if the foglights work or don't work we will be able tell what side of the circuit we need to work on.
Let me know.

Could be the relay for the lowbeams is faulty, if your DRL's are your lowbeams, then your DRL Unit could be bad. Also did you blow a fuse cuz a random surge could blow the fuse

perhaps i missed something here... lowbeams and daytime lights are about the same.... be that as it may... the merely obvious thing is that the low beams are burnt out.... next thing would be that the relay for the day time lights could be defective... it's often mounted on the firewall.
