What could be wrong if the headlights and high beams stopped working on a 1990 Honda Accord but the bulbs are fine and the parking lights and blinkers still work?

First double check the placement of the headlamp bulbs. Make sure that the bulbs are connected properly and that no wires have been detached. You might also want to check to fuse that leads to the headlights. If that fuse is blown, just replace it. Look in the engine bay, on the passenger side for the fuse panel. The inside cover should identify the fuse for the headlamps, etc. it could also be the high low beam switch . it is a combo switch with the turn signals. try to gently move the arm in a figure "8" and watch for the lights to blink off and on or between high and low beams. try this in the high and low beam position. if the do anything but stay on continually replace turn signal/beam switch. also consider the dash dimmer switch The headlight switch activates a relay in the fusebox. Look on the underside of the fusebox cover for a diagram showing where it is. First confirm the headlight fuse is OK. Then, have someone slowly turn the lights on and off while you gently press the relay with one finger. If you can't hear or feel the relay clicking on and off, you may have to replace it.

If the high and low beam headlights stopped working on a 2000 Toyota Tundra, the fault could be with the headlight relay switch. This is a large fuse located in the fuse box on top of the battery.

Sounds like an electrical problem, check your battery, alternator, and fuse box, and light wiring.

Replace the Turn Signal Flasher Relay.

I believe the flashers are on a separate fuse than the blinkers, that is where I would first start to look, is the fuse box

Make sure the parking brake is completely released. If the parking brake is on the Highlights go off.

I just had this same problem with my 1998 VW Jetta. My parking brake light came on one day, but only half illuminated. Shortly after my windshield wipers and headlights stopped working. My radio works but the fans don't work either. I just found a thread which seems to point the problem at the ignition switch: http://car.justanswer.com/volkswagen/6uht-1998-volkswagen-jetta-headlights

If parking and tailights are working could be headlight switch--rheostat for dimming control could be bad

The headlights in the Ford F150 may have stopped working due to a bad fuse or bulb. Check these and if it doesn't fix the problem visit a mechanic.

There could be numerous problems that may cause this fault. Personally, my blinkers started going out (working sometimes and sometimes not) and what I found out is this...The flasher switch that is located in the dashboard above the radio is faulty. When my blinkers do not work i just tap down on the flasher switch without turning it on and my blinkers work again. Shotty electrical work in this car if ya ask me.

Could be a fuse issue if they have stopped working or a dynamo, alternator, generator issue ie, not putting out enough current.

Presumably if both stopped working at the same time the bulbs are okay, but worth checking. The fuses might be fine but the actual connection between wires might be loose/disconnected.

Check fuse # 3 , that is a 15 amp fuse for your parking lights if all 4 don't work

I think there are two different flashers one for blinkers and one for the flashers.
