Where is the headlight relay in the 1998 jimmy? Low beams won't come onat night everything else does. high beams work


There is a headlight relay in the engine compartment fuse box, but its after the headlight switch and before the dimmer switch, so it powers both high and low beam circuits.
I would check the dimmer switch.

My daytime running lights work, high beams will come on but switch wont stay on, have to hold it. Low beams do not work and daytime running light dash indicator stays on all the time. Is it a relay or...


if you have to hold the switch so the high beams stay on then that indicates a bad/worn switch,you could have 2 problems the day time running light relay may have a problem with it.i would first replace the headlight switch at the base of the steering colume as by the info you supply its not changing to the high beam side without holding the switch in position.

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

Headlights not working at night but my day time running lights work just fine


possibly head lamp switch. daytime running lights on separate circuit and use the high beams at reduced voltage. does flash to pass work? that's high beams too. do high beams work?

Is it just low beams?
do taillights work?

Headlights wont work


Well...lets start with the obvious. Check fuses and NEVER piggyback any stereo or security stuff into their fuses...you dont want the lights to shut down during a night drive!!
Check under the hood for a relay center...also has some fuses there as well.

The Daytime Running Lamps are a "straight through wiring configuration". Doubt it even goes through a headlight switch at all.
But the regular lights do.
Unless you've worked on the front of the car and forgot to plug the headlights back in, do this...
Turn the light switch on...looking at the instrument cluster , can you make the high-beam-indicator light come on?
As you rotate the headlight switch knob...does the instrument panel lights brighten or dim? You probably have a faulty headlight switch...auto stores have them...they simply plug in.

All of the running lights work except the headlights 1998 jimmy


just try this. I had the same problem here a while back. try clicking on the high beam lever. mine went bad and was stuck in between high and low beam and would not come unstuck. and it caused the headlights not to work...

perhaps i missed something here... lowbeams and daytime lights are about the same.... be that as it may... the merely obvious thing is that the low beams are burnt out.... next thing would be that the relay for the day time lights could be defective... it's often mounted on the firewall.
