    Hi Philip Van Den Berg, check the low beam relay
    and check the plug on the back of the globes could have dust in it. maybe go to service station that has air and use air to blow out any dust.
    Also check voltages at relay see if relay gets a voltage from the light switch and if yes does relay click on if switched on.
    relay box will be in engine bay if it is a car

Hi manolonusa,

It may have something to do with your headlights, but my first thought is they are just a symptom of another problem.

I'd check on the alternator. If the ALT fails, a good battery will keep the car running for quite a while. Sometimes the first symptoms are the dimming of the headlights. So:

  • Make sure belts are tight.
  • Get a meter and test the output voltage while its running (be careful when doing this).
  • Check the voltage at the battery when stopped and when running.
  • Same thing with headlights on and off.
Get back to me with the results. Once the alternator is ruled out we can check a possible headlight problem. But this way, at least you won't be stranded somewhere with a dead battery.

If all fuses and bulbs are fine, it's probably a problem with the wiring harness. Take it to the dealer. Wiring harnesses are not something to do by yourself unless you're experienced with wiring on the specific car.

SOURCE: 2001 Toyota Corolla high beam lights are not

Your switch must be working since your indicator is telling you when the high beams are on, so my guess is that your bulbs are faulty. The high beam part. They probably burnt out one at a time, so you didn't notice until the second one went. Change your bulbs, and see if that solves it. If not, let me know.

SOURCE: no low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

2008 ford ranger headlight relay bad? Lamps do not light up, checked BULBS..OK no left highbeam Left and right lamp fuses ok and hi/lo 30a fuse ok


Did you check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a testlite or something.
I posted part of headlamp wiring. You understand your dimmer switch is involved in the circuits.

My headliight bulb burrned out on my 2010 forte, but the new bulb wouldn't work, used test light at plug and had no juice, is there a relay for each side?, other side works


No there is not a relay for each side , one relay for low beams an one relay for high beams . Two different fuse's for left an right low beams . H/LP lo (RH) 10amp , H/LP Lo (LH) 10amp . Located in the E/R Fuse / Relay box . E/R - engine room fuse box .

No low beam headlights


Either the switch or bad wire connections at the bulbs. Scratch that - I'd be lookin at the switch.

Dashboard light not working


Check the instrument panel warning light bulb holder for power.
If no power present, then check wiring connector and wiring condition.

Prius high beam lights work but low beam lights do not work?


On a 2008 Prius, If both High beams work but only one side has working low beams, then it is most likely a fuse. So before breaking your knuckles to change the bulb, check the fuse first. I found out the hard way as my mom distressed to me that her drivers side headlights were out. So without checking to see if low and high were working, I proceeded to remove and replace the bulb - ouch! There are 4 10 amp fuses that protect the circuits for low/high beam function. They are under the hood in the fuse box on the drivers side and they are marked on the box cover. Check them before changing the bulb.

Low beams dont turn on........... bulbs check ok...................fuses under hood ok.............need help


{: ) I wonder how you checked the fuses and the bulbs. Did you check also the HDM fuse 15amp and the HDM relay both at the underhood fuseblock? Turn on the low beam and check for 12v at the LO beam fuses. If there is voltage at the fuses but the low beam ok bulbs won't light, then there's a wiring issue from your fuseblock going to the bulbs.
But if no voltages on the LO fuses when the low beam is switched on, then the problem could be on the HDM fuse or relay, the headlamp switch, the BCM, or even the fuseblock.

2007 toyota corolla high beams won't work when I pull the lever to switch from lo to hi--fuses all look good--blue indicator light (on dash) to show hi beams are on won't come on either


switch or fuse remove fuse and replace one same amp
maybe both high beam in bulbs blown
but blue light not coming on would say a fuse or switch faulty

Try checking the wiring that goes from the lights to the main power supply. You might have a short that is blowing the bulb or a bad ground.
