Question about 1997 Mazda 626
Folks, it is the multifunction switch (directionals/hi&lo beams) without a doubt if you can get the low beams to come back on by monkeying with the stalk.
After years of changing bulbs, checking wiring and headlamp sockets, I had the switch replaced and all is right in the lighting world.
I don't know about the 1997, but 1998 thru 2002 don't require the steering wheel to be removed, just the steering column covers. The stalk and switch are a single module, and I was charged two hours labor for removal and replacement. Switch was dealer only, $149, plus the two hours labor, brought it in around $300.
In retrospect, I could have done the work myself. Have the repair manual, but its too damn cold in upstate NY right now to be doing driveway car repair!

I have a 1997 Mazda 626 and my headlights go out for no reason. My highbeams seem fine so if I have to drive at night I have to drive around holding my highbeams on. Nobody can figure out the problem. I really need help on this. I need to drive my car at night and can't.
