Re: My regular headlights don't work but brights do
My story Dealing with Dodge
I had a 1994 Dodge Ram. The Red Dodge Ram I had it malfunctioned and my brake became the throttle.
I had to put the truck in reverse then park. to stop, after it was out of control at 80 mph a hill slowed us down. Are you sure
its not electrical and the curse control is not giving you trouble?
Mine had multifunction switch was not working and the headlight switch burned up. I also found out that Audi had problem with the brake becoming the throttle
in the 1980s Daimler Chrysler and Audi were German made. I don't think
there is an easy answer. I hope you stay safe. Another man is having
strange trouble also. I'm sure there are many more people with trouble
with the vehicles. I wish Dodge would step up to the truth. and recall
their nightmares. I saw many of their 1996 Dodge trucks at their
dealers shop with all the electrical pulled out.

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.
First of all are your headlights a double filament type headlight? If yes then I would suspect that a power wire to the high beams is broken or shorted. If your high beams are a separate set of lights from your regulars running lights then either the high beams headlights are missing. or has a broken power wire or shorted or...You could check the fuse box under your dash and under the hood of the car to see if you have a fuse for the high beam lights.
I suggest testing the relay for your highbeams (under the hood) as it sounds the relay is stuck in the on position. If that doesn't work, you may have to test your high / low beam lever to see if the contacts are touching
If you have a service vehicle soon light (not service engine soon) this usually indicates a problem with the foreward lamp system.Your problem seems confusing, but check your high beam lamp operation. These cars are NOTORIOUS for corroded harnesses to the headlights. The problem is usually buried behind the washer bottle or across the radiator area. If you are lucky, it may be a burned out high beam bulb. If the blue symbol for brights stays on and there is no click when pulling on high beam lever, you will need a new turn signal switch.
So, when u turn on the high-beams, the indicator light goes on, but u still have low beam headlights only? Check the headlight (either one), and see if by chance both high beams burned out at approx. the same time. U don't specify what year, I'm not sure if u have a replacement bulb, or a sealed beam headlight to replace. If the high beams are both ok, then it must be the headlight high beam switch. Let me know what u find.
I have simmilyer problem. have a 1987 ford escort stationwagon high beams only but have to hold the bright lever on at all times. Otherwise my lights don't work at all except the parking lights. Have you found your problem that might help me.
