As a guess both low beams are burnt out The daytime running and high beams are the same light filament. Or the fuse or the relay for the low beams.

Check all fuses and check for burn out headlights, high and low beams

Just had the same problem. Replace the Multi Function (turn signal) switch on the steering column

daytime running lights for chevys are automatic. you cant turn them off. all you can do is control the high and low beams.

Does the car have fog lights? I have a 2003 Sunfire that the high beams would not work on. This was caused by a short in the fog light wiring. I had the fog lights rewired separate from the harness (about $100) and the problem was fixed.

Your computer brain in your truck is messing up take it to a mechanic is my advice. Not sure I even understand what you are asking,but, If its what I think , its just a matter of turning on your lights. For some reason Chevy thought it would be a good idea to have just your low beams and the high beam dash light come on automatically when it got dark, don't ask me why. If this is not it rephrase you question and be more presice.

acid drips from your battery onto the wiring harness. corrodes a wire connector near rad support. bin there, done that.

dimmer switch wore out or you might just have running lights.

Basically, it comes down to the year of the vehicle, and whether it has "City" lights. Running lights (a.k.a. daytime running lights) can be an intergal part of the headlight bulb, meaning that it's the same bulb, as your low beams, just lower voltage signal. With city lights, you need a different bulb. Refer to a Repair Manual (I prefer Bentley [TM]).

yes, if truck has day running lights, the low beams are on at all times, when head lights are turned on by the switch, the voltage is increased on low beams to a full 12 volts on low beam, when switched to high beam, all four are on.

the fog lights work with the low beams , they wont come on with the high beams

The low beams and high beams are both H7 bulbs. The fog lights are H3's.

Low beams and fog lights if equipped. High beams only light-up the fog more.

your bulbs are burnt out. when you switch on the high beams its only the high beams. but when you flash your brights it lights up both high and low beams.

Your headlights are operated by twisting the end of your turn signal stalk. One forward rotational click, from the off position, turns your running/parking lights on. The next click turns your running/parking and your head lights on. The third click is "auto". In this positions your lights will turn on and off automatically depending on how much ambient light your vehicle is in while driving. Pushing the turn signal stalk forward turns your high beams on. Pulling it back again turns the high beams off. Your daytime running lights stay on whenever the car is running.

In my experience, the wording of the DMV regulations in most states refer simply to "dazzling" or "blinding" lights and are not otherwise defined as "high" beams. If your front lights (low beams/high beams/fog lamps) fit the description of "dazzling" lights (DAY or night) then they are unlawful when used in an oncoming traffic situation.

If by "dim headlights" you mean low-beams... the bulbs are bad and must be replaced.

I believe that it is illegal to run fog lights and high beams together, however I could be wrong.

Im Assuming you Should Check The Whole Lighting System. Usually it NOT the switch but could be. suprised me once when it was, but again usually not. The Daytime lights a separate from the Regular beams, check the high and low beams next before anything else. maybe just an old light that decided to Crap out?
