Why would the high beams not work on a 1987 Accord if all fuses are good and the headlights have been replaced?

Not familiar with the vehicle, but a generic answer could be a bad relay (assuming they used one) or a bad high-low beam switch. Good luck

The headlights are on two different fuses. The high beams are on one fuse and the low beams are on another fuse. The fuse for the low beams may need to be changed.

Often it can actually be a faulty turn signal!! As silly as this sounds it is quite common. First thing to do is clean the contacts on the turn signal, if you still get high beams and no low beams you probably need to replace the turn signal switch.

Check your fuses by your left foot in the driver's seat. There is a panel with a bunch of fuses and it could be simply a burnt out fuse!

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.

Check all fuses and check for burn out headlights, high and low beams

There is a detachable plastic piece below the coin tray marked "Fuse." If you remove that there should be a clear plastic insert that diagrams the fuses. If yours is missing, the low beam fuses are in the middle row, the two far right fuses. The low beams are on the row with three spare fuses, fourth and fifth from the left. They are all 10A fuses.

i replaced alt batt and some fuses my 91 accord lx will not stay charge over 10.60 volts what is the problem

have you checked your fuses? it could be as simple as that This is true, there is a separate fuse for the high beams, low beams and radio. Fuses for 1999 LHS are located behind a side panel (drivers side) of the dash next to the steering column. Driver's side door must be open and there is a wiring diagram on this panel.

Possibly the multifunction switch (switch in columm). Check the bulbs, fuses etc first

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.

There should be separate fuses/relays for the low beams. Check the underhood fuse block located on the firewall. They are all clearly labeled.

Most likely the headlight relay. The relay switches between high and low beams. As low beams are used more, they are the relay contacts more prone to corrosion

Check the bulbs, switch, connectors, relays and possibly fuses, depending on how your vehicle is wired.

if it's a Canada model, it's the daytime running lights relay, if us model, then check headlamp relay located in underhood fuse box (also that's where drl relay is)

Additionally, it should be noted that the high beams still work and the low beams do not. Also, when the headlights are turned on, the blue high beam light remains on whether it is flipped over to high beams or in the regular position. My dad fears that it may be the control arm. Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance! Unfortunately, your dad is probably right. We had the exact same symptoms with our 1999 Protege, and after taking the same steps you mention, we took it to the shop, and they replaced the control arm. That fixed the problem.

Daytime Running lamp are usually controlled by a separate module. You will have to find the relay or fuses for the headlights and check them. They are usually in the engine compartment fuse box. One fuse\relay usually controls the low beams and another controls the high beams. That is the way Ford does it anyway. If those are good then the switch is probably bad and will have to be replaced.

Most of the expense in this will be for labor at the dealer or mechanic. The reason for this is it sounds as if your issue is in the electrical system, and that can be time consuming to trace. One thing you may want to check is the switch for the headlights. That is a cheaper option for troubleshooting.

The 1996 Mitsubishi headlight fuses are in the fuse box. The fuse box is in the engine compartment. There are two separate fuses for the headlights. The location of the fuses can be found on the inside cover of the fuse box.
