Why would the highbeams on a Hyundai Accent turn on mysteriously when they are set on the low beams?

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

the fog lights work with the low beams , they wont come on with the high beams

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.

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.

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. !!

Why would you? Fog lights are designed for use in poor driving conditions such as fog or rain at night. Using high beams under those conditions would make matters worse, that's why your vehicles fog lights won't operate when the high beams are on.

I believe that it is illegal to run fog lights and high beams together, however I could be wrong.

On a 95 Jetta you push the lever forward to keep the highbeams on pulling it is just to flash them. also make sure you have the main light switch turned on as well.

your low beams have to be replaced it seems,,,,,open hood and take out the low beam lights by turning the plugs and pulling out . twist and pull. once out the simply pull out of their slots for easy replacement. put back in slots and twist back to tighten

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!

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.

There is no specific collective noun for beams, however you can use any noun that is suitable for the context, for example a row of beams (support beams), an agitation of beams (flashlight beams), etc.

Your high beams work but your low beams do not because the switch is broken that switches between high and low beams. Electrical switches wear out.

I have a 99 Sahara and have had to replace the switchint he dash twice. Fairly easy job about 30 buck or so. Your headlights must be on and they will only woirk when you have the low beams on. they turn off when you switch to highbeams.

open the hood by the lights u will see a hole wth a light symbl near it put a long screwdriver in and turn the click wheel thing that will raise/lower the whole headlight assembly. ADJUST THE LOW BEAMS BECAUSE THE WHOLE ASSEMBLY MOVES HIGHBEAMS ARE NOT AS IMPORTANT
