Relay is in the box under the hood to the right of the engine, located just to the north of the battery. There should be a sticker on the cover tellign you which relay is for the headlamps. I've had this issue on both '01 Elantras I've owned. First case the connection was loose and the tabs got carbonized from the arcing. A little sandpaper to cleaned them up and then I bent the tabs inwards towards the center of the connector pattern to maintain a tight connection. Second car, the relay just got stuck and would work again for a completely random period of time if I unplugged it and tapped it with a hammer to reset the relay. Replacement relay from Hyundai was the only thing I could to fix that one.

    Can't find H/L relay... 2002 Santa Fe. Low beams work. Hi-beams intermittent. All of the relays in the box under the hood are noted on the box cover... problem is none are marked for headlights. Both left & right H/L fuses are good.

Headlights usually use a relay and possibly yours is not working right. Relays can have be sticky in that the contacts won't close or otherwise the relay coil is not getting voltage to close the contacts.

Assuming you do not have DRL, the headlamp relay is located in the passenger compartment junction block

Where is the right headlight low beam relay switch on a 2014 Honda Ridgeline


Hope this helps a little. There are fuses for left and right lo beams, did you use a test light and check voltage on proper fuse. If the lo beam works on the other side, the problem isn't the relay. might be the fuse or wiring circuit? Just my opinion.

You need to replace your headlight on the side it's not working on. If you have ONE bulb on each side that has hi & lo beam, use a HB5 replacement bulb. If your hi and lo beams are separate bulbs, use a HB4 replacement bulb.

Click on the link. What testing have you done. Did you check for voltage and ground at the lo beams? Use a test light. In the diagram, the top wire for low beams is voltage, the bottom wire is ground. There are lo beam fuses, check those. Check voltage at fuse with lo beams turned on. It might be possible to unplug the low beam relay and use proper jumper wire on proper terminals to see if lo beams will operate. If they operate with the jumper but not w/o, check the control side of relay.
Your head lamp switch and dimmer are both inputs to bcm. I can only help with testing. You have to do the testing.

I have a 1998 Chevrolet K2500 that the headlights are not working correctly on. When I turn the headlights on nothing comes on unless I turn on the high beams, only the high beams are on, no low beams. ...


Somehow the tan wire from the low beams has been cut from the hi/lo switch and is now attached to the brown wire from the headlight switch. Trace the tan wire from the headlights to the hi/lo switch to see what happened.

Lo-beams not working


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.
