Why would the high beams not work on a 1990 Lincoln Town Car with auto headlights and auto dimmer if the dash indicator is lit?

Ok... need a little more info here... but if the high beams work manually, but not with the auto dimmer, my first guess would be that you have a faulty relay somewhere in the system. If the highbeams don't work at all (manually or otherwise) then I would guess the highbeams could be burned out, or you could have a faulty dimmer switch / relay. Good luck!

Bad bulbs Bad dimmer switch Believe it or not, you can blow the filaments for low or high beams only, without affecting the opposite. However since it is highly unlikely that you are going to blow the same filament in both lights at the same time, I would suggest that you check your dimmer switch.
