    High Beam Lights not Working – Repairs & Replacement in Hamilton

    Why are high beam lights important?High beam light

    Your car’s headlights (or headlamps) are used to improve your vision at night and allow other drivers to see you coming. Almost all headlights will have a high beam mode, which projects a brighter light that travels further. High beam lights are ideal for driving through rural areas, dimly lit roads and roads with a higher speed limit at night. Their advantage is that they allow you to see more from a further distance, improving your car’s safety, especially at high speeds.

    Faulty high beams can affect your vision when driving at night. For this reason, it is important to get the lights repaired. Additionally, you may fail your Warrant of Fitness if the high beam lights aren’t working correctly, are adjusted incorrectly, or the headlight lens is cloudy and needs cleaning / polishing.

    Causes of high beam lights not working:

    • Blown bulb – A blown bulb is the most common cause of the high beam lights not working in your car. Some cars use a single bulb which can switch between high and low beam, whereas other cars use two different bulbs. Regardless of the type, these bulbs will eventually fail, resulting in the light not illuminating at all.
    • Bad wiring or high beam relay – Problems with the wiring or relay can affect the connection between the high headlights and the battery. This can prevent electricity from reaching the high beam lights and turning them on.
    • Blown fuse – Your car’s lights have fuses which protect the circuits from overloading. A blown fuse will also prevent electricity from reaching the high beam lights. Blown fuses will need to be replaced in order to restore function to the bulbs.
    • Malfunctioning high beam control / switch – The high beam control switch toggles your lights between low/standard and high beam mode. If it is damaged or malfunctioning, the high beams may not work. On most cars, the high beam control is located on a stalk coming from your steering column that also controls the indicators.  However, some cars will have a button or seperate switch that toggles high beams.
