Q: Problem with low beams, high beams work fine.

asked by on

Changed one low beam bulb and now the other three don't come on, but when you turn on the high beams all the lights light up.

You may have a shorted wire going to the headlights. A technician can test all the fuses and check to see if the wiring is shorted to ground and diagnose the problem. I would look at the fuses to the headlight to see if they are blown and then go from there.
