Low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do

The low beam headlights do not work on my 1991 nissan truck. The high beams work fine. Does anyone know what I can check or what might be causing the problem? I appreciate any help I can get.

I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.

My low beam head lights will not work, but high beam will. What could the problem be.

The headlight bulb has two elements. One works with high beam and the other works with the low beam. The low beam element is broken/fused. You have to change the headlight bulb in this case which is available at any of the auto spares shop.

My nissan maxima's headlights go fine on dip and full but when you put them on high beam they just cut off completely any ideas on how to fix this???

Have you replaced the lamps? Most car headlamps have separate elements for low beam and high beam. If both elements are broken, there's your answer. I believe also that the high beams are on a separate fuse to the low beams, so check your fuses to make sure it hasn't blown. Hope this helps!
