I have had the same problem with my 2004 dodge ram 1500. I also ran a ground wire from the good headlight to the passenger h/l. This worked for about a day. I took it to the dealer. For a $100, they informed me that I would need a new power modulator ( fancy name for fusebox under the hood), and a new wire to that headlight with an estimated cost of $700. I believe the problem is in the dimmer switch. It cost $67. I will try to install it this weekend, and I will let you know if it works....

Well the low beams have fuses and they also have relays. if both bulbs stopped working at the same time than more than likely its the relay. this is located under the hood in the distribution center but before you buy you can test with the relay from the high beams should be the same type. If side of the headlight stopped working first than it is more probable that it is one of the fuses located inside the car under the dash.

The problem is most likely your cars multi function switch. That is the switch that controls your blinkers, dimmer, and everything else. If you change the switch that should solve your problem.

you might just have two bad low beam headlights, I have seen it before. Only other problem would be the switch that turns on the headlights is bad. Best way is to Test power going into the headlight when the low beams are turned on to rule out the switch.

Headlights go out


If your Highbeam Switch is on your streering colum (turn signal lever) Thats where I would start too look! It could be the wires to the highbeam switch. I had that happen on my ford. But if the highbeam switch is on the floor, check for a bad circut connection and if that checks ok it might be your main headlight switch! Even though you may not loose your highbeams, your main headlight power still runs through that highbeam switch, and being on the colum thats why the would start to function when you move the shifter.

If your high beams come on only when you hold the lever, and you have no headlights otherwise, i would suggest it has to be the dimmer switch that is faulty. First, though, use a test light to see if you have power to the low beams. Just pull the bulb out, and test in the socket. If you have power there, the problem is just the bulbs. No... they didn't both burn out at once, but you don't notice until they are both gone. You meet cars all the time with one headlight. When the second one goes, they over think the problem.
The fact that your dimmer switch has to be held to get any headlights would lead me to believe it's the dimmer switch that is faulty.

Headlights and highbeams switches


After reading your post, I am pretty sure the headlight switch is at fault. What happens when you turn the headlight switch to on and then actuate the high beam switch? If both low and high elements light up, I think that would be the headlight switch itself as the culprit. I don't have access to the wiring diagram you need, as that would answer your question end the guesswork on my part.
