you will probably have to replace the headlight switch.
High beam headlights reveal objects at a distance of at least 450 feet away. High beam headlights allow the driver to view obstacles in the road much sooner than low beam headlights.
Use your high-beam headlights at night whenever it is legal and safe.
At night yes, but in the day no because the sunlight overpowers the headlights and high beam lights.
Car headlights have to be able to "dip" so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic, they therefore can switch between a "high" beam and a "dipped" beam and thus have a dual beam.
The switch or the relay, check the cheapest, or simplest thing first, which could be the relay, but the symptom points more to the switch.
No, you should not use high-beam headlights at all in heavy fog.
I was looking at the 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis Owner Guide and it shows that you can change each of the ( 4 light bulbs for the 2 low beam and the 2 high beam headlights ) ( the low beam headlights take bulb # 9006 ) ( the high beam headlights take bulb # 9005 )
i have a 96 olds achieva and my high beam light was flashing, i checked the headlights and one of my low beam headlights was out. once replaced the flashing stopped.
A blown fuse can affect just your high beam headlights. The high beam and low beam headlights are on separate fuses. The separate fuses ensure that you will not lose all of your license at the same time.
It sounds like the low beam/high beam switch is bad. Fuses are not the problem since they are built into the headlight switch and would cause headlights to blink or not come on for both high and low beam headlights.
Check fuses and bulps.
Possible that both dip beam bulbs have blown
It is generally a small blue light that illuminates in the dash cluster notifying you that your high beam headlights are on.
You can but it makes matters worse. This would be the time to use your fog lights if you have them.
I know that if you move the turn signal lever ( which is part of the multi function switch ) away from you it turns on the high beam headlights and if you move it towards you , you only have low beam headlights ( and if you pull the turn signal lever all the way towards you and then release it the high beam headlights will flash each time you do that )

Dimmer switch is possibly defective
High beam headlights can illuminate anywhere from 30 meters to 150 meters ahead of the car. This is 98 feet to 492 feet away.
The switch is broken. You need to replace it.
Almost never the same except for a few instances. Normally low beam are 55 watt and high beam are 65 watt. See sources and related links below to lookup your vehicle.
I just fixed this problem , it was my daytime running light module
