Do you have an aftermarket hitch?? I have seen a lot of issues with people having U-HAUL hitch installed with the convertor box. Whell, when the convertor box is installed, u-haul uses scotch locks, which after a while causes all kinds of electrical issues. including head light issues. Also check the convertor box. It may be faulty. Nissan make a very nice harness for the truck. no splicing needed. There is a single connector behind the bumper on passenger side. Get harness. That is if you have the u-haul convertor. If you dont, I would be looking at the head lamp switch.

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

Headlights do not turn on my chevy cavalier. replaced light bulbs and high beams stay on but no low beams.


Sounds like your dimmer switch is stuck on or broken/worn out. Sometimes you can get it back by clicking your high beam switch in & out many times. If it frees up & switches back to lowbeam it will buy you time before you need to replace the dimmer switch. If not you will need to replace it right away.

My low beam lights sometimes stop working i still have high beam and daylight runing lights after a while they come on.2009 elantra dealer can't find problem.


when the low beams quit try switching from high to low and back and see if low beams stay on, if they do it may be the dimmer switch, if that doesn't change anything suspect the headlight switch.
