The low beams quit working. High beams work fine, but when you switch to low beams they just shut off. Park lights and fog lights are still on though.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check the relay and fuse under the fuse panel under hood. it'a s big rectangular thing you'll see it. it should be marked what is what on the inside top.

Read the guide below on testing relays

Bad connections, corrosion, or a bad switch are all suspects. Where the sockets corroded when you changed the bulbs? Since both lights are out I would test the switch to make sure it is working. Look for any loose connections.

Both low beams would not work after I started the car last night. Only the high beams would work. When the high/low beam control would be placed in the low beam position there were no lights at all.

Do you have a multi meter to do some testing?Also a scan from a professional scan tool that can read all the computers would really help. Not a diyer scan tool or auto parts scanner They can't read all the computers. Also get me the exact code numbers you have not code descriptions?

My low beam headlights on my GMC Envoy cut out. What could be causing this? My fog lights, parking lights, and high beam headlights works fine except for the low beam headlights.

This cold be a relay, ground or light bulbs themselves in the headlights. Check your underhood electrical center for a bad relay. If the under hood center cover doesn't list the relays then your owners handbook should.

Hello -

To better assist you is your model just the Envoy or the XLK? Also what is your engine size in liter?

Not trying to insult you. Just making sure you and I are on the same page. Are you sure both light bulbs are still good?

Next, I show fuses 3 and 6 are 10amp for the low beams and fuses 5 and 2 are 10 amp for the high. You did check them with an ohm meter and they are good.

Next, I also see Relay number 46 is a relay for the low beams. Have you checked that?

Hello -

Hey one other thing while I have you on the line.............

Also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.

Electrical problem
2000 GMC Envoy 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive 150000 miles

the low beam hid headlight went out. Fuses are ok.
The cost of repair parts for this is 900.00 for ignitor & balast. Obviously this is insane for one headlight. Can this headlight system be replaced reasonably by a more conventional halogen system safely. The high beams are halogen, and there are plenty of housings from that style of jimmys and blazers.
Thank you

Not sure on that one. Never heard of someone going from HID to regular lights. Might want to compare the wiring diagram for the two differnet trucks, dont see why it wouldnt work, all of the HID stuff is located in the housing.

There is a wiring harness in the steering column that controls the daytime running lights, it is most likely that this is the cause of that problem, these wires are known for breaking because of the tilt wheeel. I assume you checked the fuses in the car and under the hood first!
