High beam headligts will not come on + no dash

High beam headlights will not come on + no dash high beam indicator light. High lights come on if I hold the turn signal/light switch down but do not get the high beam indicator light on the dash. Possibly a relay problem but I can,t locate it. thanks, Ron

    I located the relays and they are OK. I disconnected the relays and the LOW beams did not work . I switched the relays and the Low beams worked.

    I checked the COMBINATION LIGHT SWITCH per my Haynes manual.I had continuity on the Headlight and Hazard Warning Light terminals. NO continuity on the Low Beam teriminals even though they work. No continuity on Flash-To Pass, Left/Right Turnsignals and they also work. Finally I had no continuity on the High Beam Lights and they DO NOT work.

Hi Pete, I just come from the auto electrician and I have a Mazda 3 SP23 2008 and the high beam is not working, the globes are fine and the column switch is working and the low beam, parking lights, dash lights, internal fuses, reverse lights, rear lights are working. Just the power is not getting to the fuses underneath the glove box (internal fuse box) any suggestions? cheers Kim

Sounds like a bad switch to me. If it was a relay,it would not work period.Not to mention, the switch controls the dash lights too.

    You won't have continuity on a closed circuit.The swich must be in the on position & disconnected from power to test it. Being you switched relays & the opposite lights worked,seems like the low beam relay is bad. could have a ground issue.

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.

Headlights wont go on all other lights work. Just high beam and low beam and the blue high beam indicator light on dash. changed headlight switch checked battery ground cable and ground wire to body.

check the fuse block under the hood, drivers side . head lights have fuses there may look ok but check with continuity tester to make sure. test wires at the head lights as well. best bet is the fuses

2005 Ford Focus ZX3 SES, the blue high beam indicator in the dash comes on with low beams, and goes off with high beams. The indicator is on at the wrong time! I have tried the following: The turn signal...

It sounds like you are confused about how your headlamp system is supposed to work. The DRL does not run on the High beam circuit, it runs on the low beam circuit. The fog lamps are supposed operate with the park lamps and also with the low beams, not the high beams. From your description, I would say that your system is operating as designed and you are having trouble telling High from Low. (Don't feel bad, that is why high beam indicators were invented in the first place.)

Highbeams

Are you sure it's your high beam and not your DRL. Your DRL light will always be on through the day when you do not have your lights on. Indicating that your drl's are on. DRL (Daytime Running Lights) are your high beam headlights at a low wattage. The only other sympton could be that you have a burnt out headlight and this is telling you so, by having the H.B. light on. on your dash.

No driving or high beam headlights

Replace the high beam switch, it is part of the multifunction switch.

The main/high beam relay/switch must be stuck on high presuming the high beam stalk selector does not operate. Probably needs replacement.
