Q: Q: Headlights not turning on

asked by on

My headlights won't turn on.

If both headlamps are not working and the bulbs are in good condition, I suspect the head lamp switch is faulty. The head lamp switch on your vehicle houses several other functions like the turn signals and the cruise control switch. Diagnosis of your headlight issue should be done by a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic. They can also replace your headlight switch if necessary.
