I don't have the book in front of me, but I think there is a relay in the box under the hood. There is also a circuit breaker or fuse. It's unlikely that both high beams burned out at once, but you might check that, as well. Subaru has the electrical diagrams online for free; but I'm not certain for your year model. Let me know what you find, or if you need more help. I think I have the diagrams here somewhere. I hope this is helpful.

I have a 2003 Honda insight hybrid, and the brights will not stay on. They do work but you have to continuously pull the lever forward. I've tried pulling it in different directions and nothing works

have you tried pushing the malfunction switch forward towards the front of the car? if it does not work then you will need to replace the malfunction switch on the steering column

I can't get my brights to stay on without having to hold them on . What might be the issue

I find that to energise the high beam momentarily (to warn oncoming motorists) I pull back on the switch lever but to change to full beam on I push down on the lever until it clicks as the low /high beam is the back and forward motion of the light switch

Light sheilds wont open and lights wont come on. If i turn on my brights and hold the swith the sheilds open and brights come on but i have to hold the switch on.

This could be a bad switch but im not sure what knd of car this is, there are many cars out that you need to push the lever foward to activate the highbeam lights, pulling back is only to turn on until lever is released, try pushing foward that should turn them on and keep them on until you pull back on the lever, good day.

My high beam switch won't stay clicked onto bright lights I have dims - but the lever won't keep my brights on. I can hold the lever forward and I have brights - but when I release the lever, I go back...

Try turning the headlight control knob clockwise so that the arrow is pointing up. You may only have it in daytime lights mode and not actually in headlight mode.

98 Explorer's Headlights won't work...have to hold highbeam on

Sounds like your switch is bad (i.e. turn signal / healight dimmer / winshield lever switch) inside the steering column. Replace as necessary.

No driving lights?

Hello there - I would suggest checking the fuse for your lights in the fuse box, and check under the hood for a fuse/relay box, and have the relay tested. If the fuses and relays are good, open the hood, and try to check the connection to the headlights and make sure they are securely connected. You also mentioned that when you push the headlights switch forward for brights, and turn on the night time head lights, and neither come on but the daytime lights do, makes me suspect the switch itself may be bad. I would first check the fuses and relays if any. Second, I would replace the bulbs (if replacable). Other than that, my last guess would be an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere. I hope this information helps you fix your lights. Thank you for your time and consideration in my suggestions/answers.

Dims don't work but brights do.

I believe that all of the Functions Listed above are on the Same Handle. There is a Half Moon Circuit and Switch that Goes around the Steering Shaft inside the Steering Column for this Handle. This is Malfunctioning and will need to be Replaced. Not an Easy Job. You will need to Pull the Sterring Wheel and go from their. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
