The problem is probably in the dimmer switch but it needs to be checked out.

Why do Low beams work high beams don't indicator light on all the time in 1996 Pontiac sunfire?

Normally caused by faulty dimmer switch.

Why do you have high beams but not low beams on your 1996 ford explorer?

The low beam bulbs are burnt out. See the Sources and Related Links below for bulb info. Also, check your fuses...probably even before inspecting the bulbs.

Why do daytime running light on 1996 Pontiac Sunfire not working It's not the relay or the bulbs?

Do your headlights work? High beams more specifically? If that answer is yes, then the bulbs are fine. DRLs are nothing more than a lower voltage being sent to the high beams in the Sunfires. (They use 9007 HB5 bulbs, which is a dual filament. highs and lows in one bulb). IF the LOW beams work, but not the high, try new bulb. Otherwise its off to try and find that relay... which is a pain in the ass. Personally, I pulled my relay out and never put it back in (I have HIDs in the car now).
