Similar problem years ago in and American car was a ground strap connecting the car body to the engine. It was loose. Bad ground just made the lamps brighter causing eventual burnout of lamps. Took a long time to find the cause. Hope this helps

Bad relay, bad switch, or a fault in the wiring. A slight chance that it could be the headlight assembly itself, although I'm a bit doubtful about it happening to both of them simultaneously.

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! .

On a '93 Ranger there is an independent fuse in the underhood power distribution center just for the highbeams. Check continuity if it is good, you may have 2 other possibilities. Either the highbeam capsule bulbs are burned out or you have a problem with the highbeam multifunction switch. !!

What could be wrong with a 1995 Hyundai Accent if new low and high beams don't work and all fuses are good?

I see you have done the easiest checks first, well done. If the fuses are fine, check the bulbs themselves as each build houses the low and high beam filament. If they are faulty replace them. They usually fail as a result of age, vibration, oil residue contamination from fitting.

Is it legal to drive with your highbeams on if your head light is out?

No, it is not. Every state or province has laws requiring every vehicle to be equipped with low beam and high beam headlamps, and requiring the use of low beam headlamps, not high beams, when you are within a specified distance of a vehicle in front of you—usually around 500 feet from an oncoming car, 200 feet from a leading car. There is no exception for faulty equipment. Operating a vehicle with faulty equipment is a violation, and so is improper use of high beam headlamps.If your low beams stop working, obviously you should not hesitate to switch to high beams to light your way off the road safely. But you don't get to just drive around on high beams for nights and weeks and months until you decide to get around to fixing the low beams!
