Check tour bulbs first and replace if blown. If OK then check wiring backwards from light to dip switch.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford F-250 Low beams do not work. High beams are fine.

just remove all the connections as it could be malfunction in the switches and the wirings needs to be rechecked to make it proper.other option could be bad dimmer switch. You will need to replace the turn signal/ dimmer switch as an assembly.to replace you will need to disable the air bag, drop the column, pull the wheel

Take a look at this link regarding DRL system. I know it's not exact truck but most of it would apply to yours too. It should give you hints on what to test & how.

SOURCE: high beams wont turn on.

First place to start is with headlight switch. I did have a case many years ago when both high beams were blown out at once, but this is rare. When you have the headlight switch out, jump power from te low beams to the high beam contacts. If high beams come on, replace switch.

Drivers side low beam headlight went out, replaced the bulb but only works on high beam, any suggestions


using a test light check for powers and ground at the headlight socket. you say the high beam works so that pretty much says the ground is good. if the low beam terminal has no power you will have to see if your car has a fuse for each headlight, as you don`t say the year make and model you have. if you have power then check the socket for corrosion or a loose connection.

check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse
