About car high beam headlights:

Headlights are an essential safety feature of a car, providing visibility for the driver during nighttime driving and other low-light conditions. Over time, headlights can become dim, cloudy, or even completely malfunction, making it difficult to see the road ahead. Replacing your car headlights is a simple and relatively inexpensive task that can improve your visibility and safety while driving.

There are two main types of headlights available for cars: halogen and LED. Halogen headlights are the most common type of headlight and have been used in cars for decades. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to replace. LED headlights, on the other hand, are newer and more expensive but offer brighter light and longer lifespan. They are also more energy-efficient than halogen headlights.

It is important to your safety that your car’s lights all work correctly. This is because they improve your vision of the road and allow other drivers to see you from far away. In the event that one or more of your lights fail, your car may fail its Warrant of Fitness.

In some cases, your car’s high beam head lights will need to be adjusted. This is because they could be pointing too far up or too low at the ground.


Causes of high beams not working:

  • Blown fuse – If the fuse that controls your car’s lights blows, no electricity will be able to reach the lights. This will prevent them from working until the blown fuse is replaced.
  • Blown bulbs – Some headlights use a single bulb which alternates between standard and high beam lighting. Other cars use separate bulbs for each lighting mode. A blown bulb will stop the high beams from working until the bulb is replaced.
  • Faulty wiring – Problems with the wires and relays can break the circuit between the lights and the high beam control. 
  • Faulty high beam switch – The high beam switch is what activates and deactivates your car’s high beams. It is usually located to the left or right of the steering column. If the switch comes loose or breaks, the high beams will not be able to activate.
