Check for voltage on headlight plug with a car voltage probe or a globe with a wire soldered on one side for the probe wire and another wire soldered to globes other terminal to Earth - terminal or car body . when 12V switched globe lights up .
Then you can test low beam relay is getting voltage from headlight switch. You can check fuse is supplying 12v to low beam.
You can check relay is switching 12V to low beam headlight .

Low beams comeing on as DRL instead of high beams Drivers side high beam not working. already replaced bulbs and ideas


On some models of chevies, the DLRs can be changed from headlight tp parking lamps.If your vehicle offers this option then refer to owners manual to make adjustments.
If your using halagon bulbs and not sealed beam type of headlight bulb, your bulb burnout might be do to the way the bulb is installed. Do not touch the halagon bulb with your hands, as they leave an oily residue on the suface of the bulb, which leads to premature bulb burn out. Either wear a pair of gloves or hold the bulb with a papaertowel.
Hope this helps you

1994 pontiac grand am high beams work but no low beams, possible relay issue?


Sounds like it's in the actuator itself - the part that you move on the steering wheel or dash to put the high beams on or the headlight switch itself.. Find the ground wire on the headlights and run a new wire from that directly to the body somewhere so it gets a good ground, or directly to the neg side of the battery.

Headlight


I had the same issue with the cheaper bulbs. Sylvania sent me some higher end bulbs and have had no issue for years. (I hope that saying that will not bring on a burn-out;)

NO YOU HAVE TO REPLACE HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS WITH HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS BECAUSE HIGH BEAM LIGHT BULBS AND LOW BEAM LIGHT BULBS TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF BULBS.WEAR CLEAN LATEX GLOVES HANDLING THE HEADLIGHT BULBS WHICH IS HALOGEN LIGHT BULBS, OIL FROM FINGERS OR HAND WILL CAUSE HALOGEN BULBS TO OVER HEAT BLOW OUT.

The headlights on my 1997 fiesta only work on full beam could you tell me what the problem might be.


if its a dual beam head light then maybe the low beams burnt out. Or its possible that your low high beam switch under your dash went out.

LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS DON'T WORK FUSES ARE GOOD AND LIGHTS KEEP BLOWING OUT --HIGH BEAM LIGHTS,FOG LIGHTS,AND CRIUSE CONTROL ALL WORK FINE.HOW DO I FIX THIS PROBLEM.


If you are handling the bulbs with your bare hands that is why your bulbs keep blowing out. use a washcloth to put the bulb in or rubber gloves, anything that will keep your hands from touching the bulb.

Driver's side low-beam headlight out


Purchase the correct bulb, open your hood, unscrew the white retaining ring behind the non working lamp when loose turn black connection 1/4 turn counter clockwise till tabs line up pull straight back remove old bulb put on rubber gloves or BE CAUTIOUS NOT TO TOUCH NEW BULB GLASS WITH BARE FINGERS. Oils from your hands an cause bulb to heat unevenly and cause new bulb to explode in the headlight assembly
So with gloved hands open new bulb insert follow steps in reverse to reassemble. Happy Motoring

Every time I switch my headlights from low beams to high beams the fuse blows to the right headlight


Seems like you have wires touching on the high beam circut its shorting out and blowing the fuse, remove the cover (where the bulb goes) and check no bare wires are touching also check the wires around the switch for high beams make sure all is good and nothing touching, Failing all that get a new switch, hope this helps
