Headlights won't go out. Seem to be stuck on high beam. The dash daytime headlight icon doesn't light, but the high beam indicator does. Using the wiper stalk to try and turn the high beams on and off doesn't affect the high beam dash light. Sometimes, going over a bump, the daytime headlight indicator will turn on and the high beam dash light turn off, and the headlights will do the same. Is there a relay that controls the headlight current?

I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee. For at least the past 9 months, the headlights and dash lights will flicker and go out. I have to either click to high beams or turn lights off completely and back on for them to work. Sometimes it seems like the lights go out more when I use the turn signals. There is no regularity to when it happens. I have taken it to the dealer multiple times but they 'can't duplicate' the incident and have advised me to bring it in when it happens. The dealer is not o

The high beam bulb is dimmed on one side when it should be completely turned off. Prior to noticing this I've been having trouble with the high beams randomly turning on and sometimes not turning off after they've been turned on. I replaced the high beams, but it's still a problem. Could this be a relay problem, and if so, which relay?

Headlight problem My car is running DRL's (daytime running lights) at night. When I turn on the switch that usually turns on the regular low beams, it turns on the high beams instead and I can't turn them off. I have to turn off the lights to turn off the high beams. This also turns off the backlight which lights the gauges, so I can't monitor my speed at night. The lights were working fine the previous night.

I have a 2000 Mazda B3000 truck. When I twist the headlight switch to the on position, the headlights do not turn on. When I switch the high beams on, they turn on. The fuses have been checked and none of them are open. Is this situation caused by the multi-function switch in the turn signal lever, which also operates the high and low beams?

When I turn on my headlights, the high beam icon lights on my dash and I have no headlights. They only come on when I pull the lever forward that normally activates the high beams. I have to hold it forward to keep my headlights on. I'm told this is a high beam relay switch problem, that the part is relatively inexpensive, and that I can replace it fairly easily. Can you tell me where it's located and how to replace it?

Headlights turn off while driving. Holding the high beam lever will active the high beams. Headlights may turn on after a period of time. The Lincoln-Mercury dealer advised that the light control module (computer) is defective and that the replacement part was $700 plus installation. If you agree, would it be practical to purchase a rebuilt unit and replace the defective one myself?
