My highbeam headlights will not come on. The dash indicator lights up but the high beams do not come on. Is there a relay or some simple fix that anyone knows of?

thanks.

Have you checked the lights to make sure they are good? The only other problem could be your dimmer switch in the steering Council is no good, check for power at the headlight connection, try activating your dimmer switch several times to see if that is the problem. Sometimes when you're playing with your dimmer switch. The lights may come on for a second.

Thanks for the reply and suggestions.
I have done most everything that you have suggested, I have even changed the highbeam lights to see if that would work.
Is there a relay that controls the highbeams? If so where is it locatated?

Thanks again for the help
