I have a 2000 zx6r both lights and the high beam indicator comes on with switch in low setting. Nothing comes on with high beam setting....any ideas as to why this may be? Btw bought it this way


Hi. It might be a faulty switch, or fuse to both main beams, or both high beam filaments in bulb gone at once (I had this both at one time)
If you disconnect the switch, then working from bulb, feed 12volts, via fuse, to the bulb terminal, one will be earth, one low beam, one high beam, if one high beam works, work back, along loom, checking connections to switch, it is probably that at fault, or relay, check/swap that out also.

The low beam on passenger side does not work,high beams work on both sides


Hi Greg:
I'd pull the bulbs from both sides and switch them.
You'll know right away if the bulb is the problem.
If low beam on the passenger side still does not work, then there is either a broken wire or bad connection. Make sure the area where the bulb fits into the socket is clean.
Usually there is only one bulb that has both high and low beam.

No low beam headlights


Either the switch or bad wire connections at the bulbs. Scratch that - I'd be lookin at the switch.

2001 grand caravan low beam light not working. i chang bulb already i check fuse already.


Hi Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

With the lights on low beam, note where the brightest part istrikes the garage door or what ever, then put it on high beam and note the brightest spot will go up and to the left. On two bulb headlightsbothe lamps work on hi and low

Low beam dosent work. bulb is good highbeam works cant find fuse for lights. its not underhood


Hi,
It has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.
Most like the low beam filiment is bad but the high beam filiment is still good, try replacing bulb. If replacing bulb does not fix problem then you probably have voltage problems and should check the voltage reading and the plug.
OR
isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illunimates with the headlight switch on.
check the wires, and check the fuse for your lowbeams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work.

The fuse box is located in the engine compartment,on the driver's side. Has thumb-screw retained cover.

Headlights, high beams


No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.
