Question about 1991 Buick Regal

1991 buick regal high beam headlights not working

The high beams are not working on the 1991 Buick Regal. We had replaced the collar switch on the column but not the combo switch for the stalk/turn signal/wipers which seems not to "click" when one pulls the stalk towards the steering wheel to change the beam mode. I busted the cosmetic housing of the tilt wheel off so I can repull the wheel and replace other things if needed. How can I tell IF it is that switch or something else? Thanks for any help.

The combination switch is the one that will cause this, not the main light switch.

you will have to go under the dash and put your hand under the dash to feel where the switch is. It is one plug and two screw to replace the switch. Pull on the leaver and you will see where it hooks into. Just take it off, and boy a new one at the parts store. Are buy the new one first, to see what you look for. Then you will be on your way to replace it.

light switch is probably defective - more power is being used on hi-beams causing breakdown in switch - get replaced

Did you check the fuse for the low beams? The high and low are on seperate circuits..
Good Luck...

SOURCE: The low beam headlight on

It could be the low beam lights have gone bad. It is very possible for only the high beams to work, by themselves. If they won't turn on check fuses.

Why does the high beam indicator stay on when normal headlights are turned on , the headlights and indicators will not work ?


sounds as though it may be a column stalk issue if all these functions are on a column stalk it may have become faulty.
It the light switch for main/dip beam is discrete may be a BCM or other electrical fault.
The first is the most likely but, as column stalks may cost a lot of cash, have a competent auto electrician take a look first

Replace the dimmer switch. Contact may be fused together if the column stalk switch has no effect.

My 98 buick regal headlights quit working. They worked sporadically for awhile, but now not at all. checked fuses already. The high beams are fine.


More than likely your headlight switch needs to be replaced. The switch (lever to flip between Hi/Lo beams) are made of plastic and after many miles they wear out.

My switch to turn my high beams on never worked, so i would have to hold the lever towards me as i drove. last night though, the high beams turned on and now they wont turn off. not even if i turn the car...


well you could just buy a used steering column from a junk yard and get the switch that way instead of buying a new one,but the switch will have to be replaced

The headlights are stuck on high beam.


pull on the signal lever toward you (ceter position). the signal lever controls the head lights either high beam or low beam. if you pull on the signal lever toward you again, you will have high beam temporarily. and if you push the signal lever towards the front, you will have the high beam locked.
