Best Answer

the dim light has a bad ground. it is using the high beems of both lights as the ground. this leads to a voltage drop of about 7 volts on the dim light. then the high beem grounds through the driving lights of a lesser wattage and this leaves a voltage drop of only 3 volts at light so the light seems not to be on but it is , just very very dim. ck your ground going to the dim light!

Why was I stopped for using my high beams at night?

High beams should only be used in extreme darkness and only when there is no other vehicle in your opposing lane. The reason behind this is because high beams can be blinding in the opposing lane and can and have lead to very serious accidents.Answer If your high beams were left of as on-coming traffic was approaching it would be blinding to the other driver. If you have your high beams on while in back of another car, it could also be blinding to the driver your following through side and rear view mirrors. Either way it is dangerous. If your high beams were left on constantly through - lets say a city - where lighting is good, the police officer may have determined that it was suspicious, and was checking to see if you were on alcohol or drugs.

yes, of course. there are 4 fuses, one each for low beams and one each for high beams. the fuse box is under the dash, inside the cabin, all the way over by the lefthand (driver's side in usa) door. the fuses are in a single row and are numbered, from 1, from left to right. fuse 1 is left low beam, fuse 2 is right low beam, fuse 11 is left high beam, fuse 12 is right high beam.

How do you turn the driving lights on for a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

I have a 99 Grand Cherokee and the driving lights are turned on by pulling on the button located at the top of the head light switch on the left side of the column, Note that the driving lights will only work with the low beams and will turn off when you switch to high beams. If you search the net you can find a way to have the driving lights and high beams on at the same time, this usually involves modifying a relay under the hood.

There is a switch especially for the foglights under the dash towards the driver's side door left of the steering wheel. The foglights will come on only if the low beams or the park lights are on. When you change from low beams to high beams the foglights will go off. Also when you turn the car off the fog lights go off too.

94 beretta and the low beams work fine but your high beams dont work at all you replaced a plastic part inside the steering wheel but it didnt work what could it be?

Which plastic part inside the steering wheel did you replace? The turn signal switch? High/Low beams are controlled by a small switch mounted to the left side of the steering column. You may need to adjust it properly, so that the metal rod comes in contact with the switch, and pushes it far enough to engage (but not too far to bottom out).

How do you turn on the high beams in your Subaru Forester?

The high beam switch is activated by the turn signal lever on the left side of the steering wheel column. There are basically three settings - On, Off, and Flash. On is when the lever is pushed away from you, Off is with the lever in its normal position, and Flash is with the lever pulled towards you. To "flash" the high beams, pull the turn signal lever towards you. The high beams will come on for as long as you pull the lever towards you. Releasing the lever will return it to its normal position and the high beams will go off. This will work regardless of whether you have the headlights turned on or off. Among other things, flashing is good for giving someone right of way, for letting someone enter a highway, or to let another driver know that they are blinding you with their high beams! Pushing the turn signal lever away from you will cause the high beams to come on (only if the headlights are turned on at the time) and stay on until you pull the lever towards you again. When you push the lever away from you it will stay in that position until you pull it back to the middle position again. This setting is good for driving on unlit streets. When the high beam switch is activated (On or Flash) you should see a blue light on the dashboard that looks like a little headlamp.
