Yes, the low beams will shut off if you turn on high beam. Not sure which way yours work but if you push the lever for high beam, pull the lever back and all lights will come on or vise versa. You would think all the lights would turn on when going into high beam.

Low beam headlights sometime will not go on, or go off after using highbeams.


low beam not working could be relay or bad contact at stork control. Fog lights should only work with park lights on. not supposed to be on with headlights like in the movies. This is illeagle in australia to have head lighs and fog lights on together as well as being dangerous to other motorists

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.

03 ion lowbeams wont work highbeams do have


The dark blue wire is the ground wire for the low beams and your pink is the ground for the high beams.

When you touch that wire to ground the lights should come on. If not there is a short/break in the wire somewhere

Double check your pink wire to confirm that it is supposed to be a ground signal.

The switch powers up the coil in the relay thus closing the contact points for your lights to work. Recheck switch for positive shut off and check relay for points sticking together, allowing lights run full time.

My left headlight highbeam light works and the lowbeam don't why


the filament on the low beam burnt out. but the high beam didn't. You have a filament for each. 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam in the same light bulb. You need a new head light.
