Q: High and low beams not working

asked by on

My high and low beams to not work. The indicator for my brights will not light up either. All others lights work fine. Fuse is good. And I've replaced my headlight sockets.

My car has 115313 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Jeeps are known for having headlight switch issues. If fuses and relays are good, the headlight switch is the most likely culprit.

If you need help with getting this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can diagnose the issue with your lights and replace your headlight switch if necessary. Good luck.
