Low beam and high beam come off same group of wires, but are separate connections. High beam works fine. Is there a way to check the wire and connection for the low beam.

Hi, if you have a meter to check the bulb, use it to check the wiring to the socket or wiring for power when light switch is turned on. You should have around 12 volts depending on year and type of truck or auto. If the old bulb was burned, you should have power there. When you turn on switch, the other side should work and you will know you have power and it may just be corroded. Check this and you should find the problem. Please keep me posted on this, I will be around to help you. Please rate me kindly if I have been of help to you.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

My 97 dodge neon head lights wont turn on but every other light will fuses look ok Wat is my problem


  1. Turn the light switch off and on several times.
  2. Change from high beam to low beam several times.
  3. Use a multi-meter to check for power to the plug that the bulbs connect to. Sometimes there are components other than fuses than can malfunction and stop the flow of electricity.
  4. Change one of the bulbs for a new one. There is a possibility that both headlights are burned out.
Sometimes, the high/low beam switch gets "stuck" between the two settings and the headlights will not come on at all.

02 Buick century the passenger low headlight not working but high beam is. I checked fuses inside the car what others things can I check.


There should be a left and right fuse and a relay involved.
The lights get power from the fuses, and the headlight switch and dimmer switch provide the ground circuit. So if you check the headlight plug with a meter you should have power and ground for high and low beam.

Low beams not working


One item to check quickly is the low beam relay to see if it is working. You can swap it out with a new one or take one from another position in the electrical box to test it. The chance that both headlight low beam bulbs have burned out is remote but worth checking. You can test with a volt/ohm meter. If the pin has voltage and the light does not come on it is burned out. The other thing that can cause this is the high low beam switch being broken. Good luck

Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

The low-beam headlights don't work. The fuses are fine as I replaced them with those of the high-beams and the high-beams worked. Other than both bulbs burning out at the same time what else could be...


Possibly the bulbs. Take a look at them; they have 2 coils per bulb, one for the low beam and one for the high beam. So it is possible that the more used low beam burns out before the lesser used high beam.

Have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 i have high beams but no low beams why?


on rare occasions I have seen both low beams burn out I would buy one new bulb and replace either one in the truck if the low beam works with the new bulb then replace the other one as well if the low beam still does not work then replace the headlight switch also check to see if the headlight switch recall was done on that particular truck or if it was under that recall,they had a problem with some of the ram trucks burning up headlight switches but I would check to see if yours might have been one of them there is a wiring upgrade that they will put in at the headlight switch that will cure that,like I said though check to be sure first yours might have not been one of them.

Headlights


The same bulb in a lot of applications controls both the high and low beam. Generally the low beam portion will burn out and for a short time you will be able to use the high beam only. I can't be certain which headlight switch that you checked, but the most common solution is to replace the headlight bulb. The bulb is on the inside of the headlight lense and is accessible by opening the hood and peeling back the rubber cover that covers up all of the headlamp apparatus. Depending on the model of vehicle they are mounted in there differently. Make sure and change both at the same time. It is generally cheaper to purchase new headlight bulbs as a (2) pack and it never fails if you change one the other will burn out in a week. Hope this helps
