1991 buick regal high beam headlights not working

The high beams are not working on the 1991 Buick Regal. We had replaced the collar switch on the column but not the combo switch for the stalk/turn signal/wipers which seems not to "click" when one pulls the stalk towards the steering wheel to change the beam mode. I busted the cosmetic housing of the tilt wheel off so I can repull the wheel and replace other things if needed. How can I tell IF it is that switch or something else? Thanks for any help.

The combination switch is the one that will cause this, not the main light switch.

SOURCE: 1992 Buick Regal my high

you will have to go under the dash and put your hand under the dash to feel where the switch is. It is one plug and two screw to replace the switch. Pull on the leaver and you will see where it hooks into. Just take it off, and boy a new one at the parts store. Are buy the new one first, to see what you look for. Then you will be on your way to replace it.

SOURCE: The low beam headlight on

It could be the low beam lights have gone bad. It is very possible for only the high beams to work, by themselves. If they won't turn on check fuses.

2001 buick regal 4 door - headlight flicker on and off. If they go all the way out, you can get them back on by kicking under the dash right above the brake pedal. I removed the cover but cant locate the...


Have you tried wiggling the turn signal lever when the problem occurs? I have seen multiple cases where the wiring inside the headlight high beam/turn signal switch melts and causes the problem you are describing. If you can wiggle the high beam/turn signal switch and CAUSE the problem, you have a defective high beam/turn signal switch.

My 98 buick regal headlights quit working. They worked sporadically for awhile, but now not at all. checked fuses already. The high beams are fine.


More than likely your headlight switch needs to be replaced. The switch (lever to flip between Hi/Lo beams) are made of plastic and after many miles they wear out.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.
