It sounds like a bad headlight relay switch. It is located under the dash near the brace that holds the brake pedal.

Why do Low beams work high beams don't indicator light on all the time in 1996 Pontiac sunfire?

Normally caused by faulty dimmer switch.

Headlights go out on Pontiac Sunfire 2000?

It might be the high/low beam switch. Had to replace one on my '96 when I had only low beams.

Why do the high beams not work even though running and normal beams work fine on 2001 Sunfire?

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.

Why would only the high beams work on a 1996 Sunfire with new bulbs?

The problem is probably in the dimmer switch but it needs to be checked out.

Low beams on 1997 sunfire don't work and already replaced the switch 3 times?

the problem is the switches themselves, just poorly designed.

Not uncommon in that model; apparently the wiring harness is weak at the low-beam wire; read more in the forum below.

Can someone tell you what the fuse code for the low beanm lights in a 2003 Sunfire is The low beams do not work It is not a wiring problem or bulbs you have no manual to look up codes Thanks?

i had this same problem. it was faulty wiring underneath the battery.

99 Pontiac sunfire no low beams no day light's high beams work fine?

Hmmm.... it seems unlikely that both low beam elements would fail at the same time, but it's possible. Replacing the headlight lamps is cheap and easy and would be my first attempt at fixing the problem. Is your DRL indicator on the dash flashing? They'll do that when the lamp(s) burn out. Since the DRL's AND the low beams don't work, I wouldn't suspect the headlight switch, however this is not beyond the realm of reason.

Why don't I have low beams on my Pontiac grand prix gtp but have high beams?

the low beam part of the bulb could be bad.

How to turn off high beam lights on a 1998 Pontiac sunfire?

Pulling the turn signal switch toward you should switch the lights to the low beams. If that doesn't work, you may have to replace the switch, which means replacing the entire turn signal stalk.

If the high beams on a 1998 Sunfire do not work but the daytime running lights do is it because they are on the same element?

Seperate circuits I believe.

Why would the low beams not work in a 1999 Sunfire?

First check the fuses then change the bulbs it is posable for both to go out
