there should be a fuse and/or relay that operates the low beams, or try replacing the bulbs.

SOURCE: Low beam headlights don't work

The problem is in the high beam switch assembly which also houses your turn signals and possibly cruise control, and yes, I'm sure. There are some electrical contacts in the assembly which dis-connect the low beams when you put the high beams on. Constant use of the high beam switch will create arcing on the low beam switch which makes the contacts not conduct electricity anymore. The daytime running lights send power to the low beams on a separate circuit. .

The repair is to either replace the assembly, $300 at dealer, $100 or less do it yourself, or take the assembly apart and clean it for free. (2 hours or less)

P.S. If you own a VW, especially around model years 1999 to 2004, there is a rare but devastating problem with engine coolant being literally pumped through all electrical parts of your car.... destroying it. Repair cost = $8,000. It is called coolant migration. Check your VW right now (takes two seconds, literally), and do a two-minute procedure to fix your car to prevent the problem here: http://www.myturbodiesel.com/1000q/multi/coolant_migration.htm

SOURCE: My low beam headlights do

Check out your fuse associate with the low beam headlight, secondly there is a relay fuse under fuse rely box under the hoos. Locate this box, and locate the relay fuse associated to the low beam. You can rotate the relay with another relay of the same spec to see if the low beam lights are coming on. I would believe that it is a fuse that is blown, check your owners manaual on the location of the fuse box. Usually it's located in the driver side kick panel.

2005 Chevy Silverado 3500. Automatic headlights turn on, the engine dies. Turn it off, it still keeps running, even when the key is pulled out.cannot find the wiring issue..... ANY HELP??


What code's ? # code's P0 what ? Any BCM - body control module code's ? Did you do diagnostic test's for said code's ? Do you know what a factroy diagnostic flow chart is ? Is the vehicle a 4X4 or 2X4 ? What engine ? Do you know what class 2 serial data bus is ? Do you have wiring diagrams ?
Headlamp ON/OFF control is determined by the body control module (BCM) by a signal on the headlamp switch headlamp on signal circuit when the headlamp switch is in the HEAD position. When the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, the BCM determines headlamps ON/OFF by the voltage from the ambient light sensor.

High Beams
The high beam headlamps receive voltage from the headlamp HI relay located in the underhood fuse block. The body control module (BCM) controls the relay on the headlamp high beam relay control circuit. High beam control is determined by a signal on the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit from the multifunction switch. When the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit is grounded, the BCM grounds the headlamp high beam relay control circuit, illuminating the high beam headlamps. The right and left high beam circuits are independent and are fused independently in the underhood fuse block. The right and left headlamps are grounded at G100 and G104.
The high beam indicator is illuminated when the instrument cluster receives a class 2 serial data message from the BCM that the high beams are illuminated.
Low Beams
The low beam headlamps receive voltage from the headlamp LOW relay located in the underhood fuse block. The body control module (BCM) controls the relay on the headlamp low beam relay control circuit. Low beam control is determined by a signal on the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit from the multifunction switch. When the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit is open, the BCM grounds the headlamp low beam relay control circuit, illuminating the low beam headlamps. The right and left low beam circuits are independent and are fused independently in the underhood fuse block. The right and left headlamps are grounded at G100 and G104.

DTC B2645
The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor signal voltage is between 1.75-4.9 volts, either the DRL will be commanded ON or the ALC will be commanded ON depending upon the amount of light received by the sensor.

Why do my high/low beam life Why are my headlights


Sounds like the low beam on your bulbs have burned out. Since you don't use the high beams that often they usually don't go first, which is why they are still functioning. Pull one of the bulbs out and check the filament on the bulb. You should be able to see if the filament is broken. If that's the case pull the other bulb and check that one then simply replace them. If it's not the bulbs then I would pull the fuse for the head lights. If that isn't the issue then its probably the switch that has failed. Start with the bulbs, that the easiest and simplest to fix.
Hope this helps, good luck.

Pulling on the turn signal switch is called "flash to pass" and you are activating the high beam lights.
Have you checked to see if you have power in and out of the dimmer switch on low beam ?

If you have separate bulbs for the low and high beams(4 light system), if you pull the turn signal and hold it, all 4 lights will stay on until you release the turn signal. You need to replace the bright bulb on the right side and the low bulb on the left side. If your headlights only have one bulb on each side, then you will have to replace both of them to get everything to work.

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.
