Do they work intermittently? Do your low beams go out sometimes when you put on turn signal? Do hazards work sometimes and if you play with switch they work off and on? I just had a problem with headlights would go off if I put on turn signal and if I jiggled the turn lever they would come back on and had trouble with all light working intermittently, brakes, turn and hazard. It was a Turn signal switch problem.The contacts in the switch were bad, all corroded and green when I took it apart. I know you wouldn't think this would affect brake lights but hey all run through this switch because of hazards and high beams. I got a new switch from dealer and all is working great now. Here's a link a link I used for switch replacement instructions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/write-up-replace-turn-signal-switch-97-xj-620147/
If it isn't a fuse or wiring issue I would look into the switch.

Replaced bulb in dipped beam. Still not working. What is the fuse code for dipped beam


May not be the bulb or fuse..could be the switch... dipped beams illuminate via voltage from the turn signal...Check your wiring and sockets and grounding . Dipped beams are usually near the bottom front fascia of the car . If there is not a shield there, any debris can cause corrosion, or chafing of wires and connections.

Low beam headlights not coming on.


a common problem on these cars is a wire breaking off the combination indicator/dip switch. remove the steering column cowlings and check that first, it can be repaired by resoldering if thats ok check the dip beam relay and wiring etc.hope that helps.

Headlights turn signals


Check high beam fuse, refers to owner manual for fuse map. If fuse ok, remove high beam bulb, don't break anything, look the filament for breakage, yes you can see it, replace bulb.

HIGH BEAMS COMES ON WHEN USING TURN SIGNAL AND LOW BEAMS ARE ON


Hello, is sounds like your issues are coming from within your turn signal/high-low beam switch. Most of the time the wires get worn or break and start rubbing around on each other causing troubles within the electrical circuit. Other times the contact switches inside the turn signal/high beam switch/lever wear and loose contact over time. You may be able to see wires leading from switch into steering colum. Check for bad wires, if none you may have to replace switch which you can get from any junkyard for bout 5 bucks plus learn how to take it apart in a junk car no one is worried about getting destroyed. BE CAREFULL WITH AIRBAGS when you pull your steering wheel to fix switch. It is not a difficult job to do.

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.
