ONE HEADLIGHT WORKS THEN SHUTS OFF WHEN HI BEAMS ARE ON

1988 Nissan 200SX • 143,500 miles

Replaced headlights, checked relays, headlights come up and only passengers side works but when hi beam is switched it it goes off I tested relays and they work. I cannot locate the headlight sensor could that be the problem? Any ideas? Or locations?

The head light sensors are usually right up on top of the dash pad right on top of the dash.I dont thats bad from whats going on. Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

Check the fuses if you have not done so.
