Headlight When I turn on the head lights only one will activate....when I switch to brights the other headlight will come on. Switching from brights to dims my vehicle looks like an emergency vehicle coming down the road. Is it a switch problem or can it be some type of relay?

10amp fuse: Labeled: radio/air con.
Problem not having a good connection.
Solution: 1.change the fuse box.
or 2: insert a small screw between the fuse and the housing. The screw will push the fuse to one side causing it to have a good connection. I did this with my engine running and ac on to hear the compressor kick in. you may have to wiggle the fusse from side to side.

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

Have you tested the lights themselves? Suspects are the lights, dimmer switch and possible but not likely, the light switch.(don't think they used a relay on those.)

There are relays for the head lights,but see if the bright lights work also,the bulbs maybe blown,not uncommon for both to blow,then there is the headlight switch,if the brights do not work,it is most likely the headlight switch giving the problem.

Head lamp does not turn on, but bright light does in chrysler


It sounds like its a 'duel filiment' headlight; 2 separate filiments, 1 for highbeams & 1 for lowbeams. (Same as a brake light/directional bulb) Replace the headlight with a new one.

Your year Pathfinder, as mine, had a slew of bad head light switches. The headlight switches caused a slurry of intermediate nightmares for a lot of customers. Many complaints included:
1. My head lights sometimes turn off upon switching from low to high beams.
2. My lights turn completely off when I switch to high beams.
3. My lights flicker when I switch from high to low beams and vise verse.
4. My lights sometime wont turn on at all.
5. My lights go on and off on bumpy roads.
6. My lights sometimes come on by themselves.
All of these different but similar complaints contribute to the infamous head light switch. There has even been reports of continuous dead battery's due to the head light switch turning the lights on and off intermittently and eventually deadening the battery.
The light switch is relatively easy to replace. Simply remove the the two upper and lower steering column covers, disconnect the two wiring harness bulk head connectors, a couple screws and wallah.
Remember your safety and always dissconncet your your battey upon electrical repairs.
Just last week I bought a new head light switch for about $70.00. I would highly recommend buying a new head headlight switch and not buying a junkyard special. You will likely be buying another faulty switch.
Good luck!!!!

Headlight wont turn on


Sounds like your headlight switch has failed. I have a 99 Audi A4, and when mine died, it was the same exact problem (it's a known problem area for the Audis). Given that your car is behaving the same way, I'd look into a new headlight switch as a solution. The toggle-for-highbeams feature is wired separate from the normal headlight wiring and is a simpler contact setup. The contacts and wiring and switching for the low and running high beams is more prone to failure. You should be able to find a switch assembly at a salvage yard for less than $15 and can probably change it yourself in a half hour to an hour.
