I would check first to make sure both bulbs are good, sometimes one is out and we do not notice then the other blows and we think some thing is wrong with the circuit. I can't see it being a fuse as you have high beams. Sometimes you can look at the bulb and see if the element is still intact. There will be solid parallel wires with a smaller wire running between them this is the one that usually goes. If it is a 4 light system it each bulb will have one and a 2 light system each bulb will have two. Even if intact still replace at least one with a known good bulb then if it still doesn't light then check all connection then get a wiring diagram on switch and test switch.
I am having the same problem with a 1994 model. The high beam indicator is also on. I believe it is related to the daytime running lights because when I turn on the headlights the lights get brighter. As I understand it daytime running lights are the highbeams at about 50% power. I need to find where that relay is and test/replace it. wish me luck...
yes, it's your day time running lights. should be a fuse for it in your relay box under the hood.
I think faulty light switch.
I have a friend with the same problem. There is a control module that works the highbeams, and running lights. I don't know where it is, or what it's called, but that's likely the problem. The auxillary lights are controlled by a relay. The relay has 3 or 4 wires connected to it. One goes to the high beam side of the headlights. One goes to constant power. One goes to the lights. If there is a fourth wire, it is a ground. These lights are supposed to be only on when the headlights are on high beam mode. The relay pulls power for the auxillary lights directly from the battery. The relay is only activated when the headlights are on high beam mode. Check the wiring.
have your drl (day time running light mogule) checked...it can be unplugged, but then you may not have any lights at all on some vehicles.
Headlights, interior lights, parking lights,Headlights, interior lights, parking lights,
I had this problem and it was a bad alternator.
Perhaps you turned on the interior lights when you were adjusting the headlights?
Brake lights should NOT be effected by the headlights. Brake light function is completely independent of the headlights. Assuming you are not refering to the tail lights, or marker lights, which are supposed to come when the head lights are turned on. Not having brake lights when the head lights are on is a big safety problem and should be corrected.
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.
No, it's not normal. Some 2003 Vibe's have automatic headlights triggered by a light sensor. If you leave the headlight switch in the middle setting between "on" and "off" they will come on by themselves when it's dark. If you turn them off the daytime running lights will still come on and the high beams will still work but the headlights won't come on automatically at night.
humm, This is strange because the DRLs (day time running lights) usually function from the same bulb as the headlights, in other words the headlights are always on so people dont forget to turn their lights on at night so if this is the case you have no problem. The only thing that might indicate a problem would be if the dash lights do not come on when the headlights are on, If this is the case then the turn signal switch could be at fault, otherwise I see no problem with the lights. Granted this could be the case or not but based on the question this is the best diagnosis I can provide, Good luck and I hope this helped
