Sounds like a secondary fuseable link failed near the battery or is so corroded its broken internally..also look for fuses to be bad.. they are under the dash on the drivers side..check flashers also..signals will not work unless the key is on..use emergency flasher unit switch instead..to test the system..

Check the fuses for continuity using the tone alert on your digital ohm meter; you don't have to pop the fuses out. Then I would check the turn signal relay.

SOURCE: DRL and High Beam do not work right on Honda Accord EX 1998

Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.


Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

1996 chevy suburban high beams work, low beams and daytime running lights don't. checked all fuses none blown, dont know how to check relays except to replace each one, one at at a time.


with a test light back probe the green wire behind the low beam then if test light on = bulb defect
the blue one is for daytime running lights example : if 1 bulb is burn or open no daytime running lights
p.s. you need to have 2 bulbs the same or it won't work

Well the high and low beam lamps use the same fuses, and the dimmer switch handles the ground circuit. So I would check the dimmer switch if both high beam bulbs are ok.

My 1984 chevrolet silverado high beams lights works and low beam lights, turning lights, emergency light and brakes lights don't work. I need help!


Those lights are on different circuits. The high and low beam lights are powered thru the headlight switch, the turn signals, brake, and hazards go thru the turn signal switch.
I would want to know if each circuit has power at the switch that controls it.

1996 dodge Ram 1500 4x4 headlights dont work.All other lights work. Headlight lamps are all good. Could it be the switch or the multifunction switch? High beam works when I pull on the directional le


The headlight switch gets power for the headlights from a 50amp fuse.
The fuse powers the headlight switch then the dimmer switch breaks for high and low beams. So if the high beams work, the problem may be with the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is made into the turn signal switch on the column. You would need to check the low and high beam circuits at the switch for power.

One of my turn signals wont work, both my headlights only work on highbeams


replace the high beam switch which causes this problem. Also clean the terminals for the directional light bulb. That will cause a negative continuity to the bulb

you may have a bad switch for the lights.if the fuses and the bulbs are good,you don`t say if your talking about the headlights tail lights,dash lights,signal lights brake lights,low beam lights high beam lights or both.i`m assuming headlights.if you have a daytime headlights,the relay in this car it could have gone bad as it is tied into the regular headlight system.
