SOURCE: Headlights, high beams

No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.

SOURCE: My low beams work on my headlights but my High beams wont come on

Take a look at this link regarding DRL system. I know it's not exact truck but most of it would apply to yours too. It should give you hints on what to test & how.

Headlight problems


If the lights work when moving or holding the high beam switch there is a good possibility the switch itself is bad. The switch is located at the base of the steering collumn. the handle actually only operates a rod that goes into the switch to push it down to switch from high to low beam. The switch is not expensive and easily accessable although you sorta have to stand on your head to reach it.

My high beam lights work but my lo beam lights don't,can you help me


When you switch from High to Low beams, do the lights go out, or continue, in the "High" beam position??? If they go go, the transfer switch, that changes the high/low beam mode is working. The most likely problem, is that the Low Beam filaments are both burned out. Some, on original equipment, never changed, can burn out within days/weeks of each other. Could be that.

Went to warm up my car and switched my low beams off. when I got ready to drive off switched low beams back on and wouldn't come on. High beams work but no lows. already changed bulbs


Your dimmer switch is bad (lever used to flip between hi/low beams) they're only plastic and they go bad. Before you change check fuses, buy I highly suspect dimmer switch.

Low beams don't work; High beams fine. Not the


the high beam switch is at fault
A new one is needed
The directional lever you pull up on to switch to high and low connects to a rod which is going to the high beam switch at the mid section of the steering coluum. It is a headache to change for your on your head replacing this part

My high beam head lights do not come after pulling handle


It is common for these cars to have problems with the headlight switches, turn signal switches, high beam and hazard switches. But--- I do not recommend changing any parts until you thoroughly diagnose the problem. If you do choose to change the combo switch on the steering column (which includes the high beam switch), it is quite easy. Remove the plastic clamshell from around the column and remove the one bolt on top of the combo switch. Disconnect the electrical connector and install the new one. The process is easy, but it is always best to check before just "throwing parts" at a car. Good Luck!

High/low beam


it very possible it could be in the switch itself but check the relay first which is usually located under the hood in the relay box
