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.

The low beam bulbs are burnt out. See the Sources and Related Links below for bulb info. Also, check your fuses...probably even before inspecting the bulbs.

Do your headlights work? High beams more specifically? If that answer is yes, then the bulbs are fine. DRLs are nothing more than a lower voltage being sent to the high beams in the Sunfires. (They use 9007 HB5 bulbs, which is a dual filament. highs and lows in one bulb). IF the LOW beams work, but not the high, try new bulb. Otherwise its off to try and find that relay... which is a pain in the ass. Personally, I pulled my relay out and never put it back in (I have HIDs in the car now).

I don't see why not it is the exact same car I think up to 1999.

As a Ford Mechanic with over 30 years experience,there is a good chance the low beam circuit in each bulb is burened out.I cannot count how many times I got a car many other people had worked on for no low beams(they had paid for swiches,relays,fuses)and I fix it with two new bulbs.

Low beams; If you're sure that the bulbs are both OK, you probably have to replace the turn signal/headlight/dimmer/cruise control switch. I had the same problem on my '96 and replacing the switch solved it. I can't quite remember how that plate light works, but I think it's above the plate in that area across the trunk lid that lights up "PONTIAC" when the lights are on. I had to remove that piece on mine to get the bulbs out. There are about 4 nuts on the inside of the trunk lid that hold the whole thing in. Take it out, replace the bulbs, put it back in place.

the whole light or just he bulbs?? just the bulbs

low freon, bad pressure switch, bad compressor clutch.
