Relay is in the box under the hood to the right of the engine, located just to the north of the battery. There should be a sticker on the cover tellign you which relay is for the headlamps. I've had this issue on both '01 Elantras I've owned. First case the connection was loose and the tabs got carbonized from the arcing. A little sandpaper to cleaned them up and then I bent the tabs inwards towards the center of the connector pattern to maintain a tight connection. Second car, the relay just got stuck and would work again for a completely random period of time if I unplugged it and tapped it with a hammer to reset the relay. Replacement relay from Hyundai was the only thing I could to fix that one.

    Can't find H/L relay... 2002 Santa Fe. Low beams work. Hi-beams intermittent. All of the relays in the box under the hood are noted on the box cover... problem is none are marked for headlights. Both left & right H/L fuses are good.

Headlights usually use a relay and possibly yours is not working right. Relays can have be sticky in that the contacts won't close or otherwise the relay coil is not getting voltage to close the contacts.

SOURCE: 2002 Hyundia Santa Fe headlight relay

Assuming you do not have DRL, the headlamp relay is located in the passenger compartment junction block

2004 f250 low beam works on one side but not the other

You need to replace your headlight on the side it's not working on. If you have ONE bulb on each side that has hi & lo beam, use a HB5 replacement bulb. If your hi and lo beams are separate bulbs, use a HB4 replacement bulb.

Jeep headlight problem

Check the relay for you headlights. It seems like you are only getting juice when in hi-beams are on and not lo-beams. Or maybe the lo-beam portion of you headlights are burned out. There are 2 filiments inside the light, one for hi and one for low.

Lo-beams not working

Hi manolonusa,

It may have something to do with your headlights, but my first thought is they are just a symptom of another problem.

I'd check on the alternator. If the ALT fails, a good battery will keep the car running for quite a while. Sometimes the first symptoms are the dimming of the headlights. So:
  • Make sure belts are tight.
  • Get a meter and test the output voltage while its running (be careful when doing this).
  • Check the voltage at the battery when stopped and when running.
  • Same thing with headlights on and off.
Get back to me with the results. Once the alternator is ruled out we can check a possible headlight problem. But this way, at least you won't be stranded somewhere with a dead battery.
