No low beams and highs work ok can be caused by either a defective multifunction switch or the DRL module if so equipped, the head light switch is the cheaper by far of the two and can easily be replaced by removing the plastic covers around the steering column, there is no relay. Below is a picture of the switch so there is no confusion and the price and part number from my favorite parts source www.rockauto.comm

Hi

If the fuses are fine then it is most likely the DRL relay switch (Daytime Running Lights.). It's located in the front of the car. A small grey box on the wiring harness. If you get a friend to sit in the car and either turn the lights on and off or from high to low in your case and you listen carefully you can hear the click coming from this box. Zero in on it and pull this out. Then get a new one. It's a cheap . As soon as you pop the hoop you will see it attached to the front bumper.

The DRL relay is in the fuse box, that grey relay in the wiring harness up near the bumper on the front impact bar is the fog lamp relay. If your lowbeams are both burnt out that will cause Day time running lights to not work, just like a broken wire in front wire harness to headlights, so check bulbs in headlights first. If they are burnt out, when you put car in drive, DRL's will flash on and off, you will hear a clicking sound and that is the DRL flasher making the clicking noise. If will stop clicking and traction light and service engine light will come on. If you pull out the DRL flasher in the fuse box or disconnect battery this will reset the traction light and service engine soon until you put your car in gear again. If your lights are turned on, you will have high beams and no low beams, but when light switch is set to ON, you don't have the problem of the DRL ,setting the traction control light and Service engine light. So make sure to check your headlight bulbs when you are having this problem. Sometimes it hard to tell when they are burn out just by looking at them. Your DRL's work on the low beam lights .

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Headlight low beams (both sides) suddenly stopped working. High beams and all other lights fine, fuses fine. 12v present at low beam fuse when switched on.


How do two bulbs burn out at the same time? - makes no sense! If sure that the fuse is definitely good, then check out the power switch and/or relay that feeds the low beams - it could be bogus.

2005 accord low beams dont work


I had the same problem on my 2001 Civic. I thought it would take a lot of money to have it fixed but went to dealer anyway. Turns out there was a recall for that problem and they fixed it for free (new turn signal lever). You may want to ask the service manager at your nearest dealer before going any farther. You may have same recall and it doesn't cost anything to ask.

The low beams on my 2006 buick lacrosse wont work the bulbs and fuses have been replaced but they still wont work


Shannon, you did not state if you checked for voltage at the fuse location-or better yet at the bulb location-
If a connection at the relay that feeds power to the low beams has come loose, then the low beams will stay out. Suggest that you locate the headlight relay (in a box under the hood) and verify that it is operating. If an assistant can operate the headlights while you listen (and feel) for relay operation, then you can eliminate that as an issue. Next would be the output of the relay (contacts could be bad) - and if you cannot open the relay to verify good contacts, then purchase a replacement relay (possibly from a junkyard) and plug that in.

Remember, the relay supplies the power to the headlights.

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5 S. headlights are not working....


Does your car have daytime running lights? It may be the drl module. The relays are part of the IPDM (intelligent power distrubution module) and are not serviceable. If the drl module is faulty the symptoms are, no drl, and one or more lights not working. Usually not grounding within the drl module.
