hello forum! i have a 2004 chevy impala. i cant turn my high beams on with turn signal switch but it they wont stay on if i put the switch where it is suppose to lock it wont stay in that position, i have to hold to leave them on? is my switch broken?
mine used to do that during the day try it at night? maybe it has something to do with the daytime running sensor if there is one im not 100% but i just lived witrh it cause i never need my hi's for daytime
And yes, I spend a lot of time deleting useless posts... many of which are yours
how do the dealer's expect us to get the cars there if they don 't run at all?
Hmm I learned something. Mine don't work without pulling back the stalk but I figured its b/c the daytime running lights were on. Made sense to me b/c the daytime running lights run off the highs and I figured the car was smart enough to know it was daylight and your trying to use highs... lol.
2002 Impala- SSC, AGX, 18" charger R/t rims w/8mm spacers, Magnaflow cat, U-bend delete, flowmaster 80 series crossflow, z28 tips, HAI, debadged, 35% tint, smoked headlights, full sound system
the highs only work with the headlights on, so no, they wouldnt work during the day. I have never owned a car that the highs worked independently of the lows. The lows had to be on for the highs to work.
The reason they "flash" when you pull the stalk back during the day is called "flash to pass"
Yeah, I would have bought a part and fixed it myself, but by the time I knew what was wrong, I had no headlights at night (unless I pulled back on the high beams). I didn't want to be cruising around without exterior lighting.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
That went bad on our old '99 Cavalier. I believe my friend at AutoZone got me the part for around $140, and I had a friend who works at a dealership install it off the clock. Only thing to be careful of is not to touch something you shouldn't and pop the airbag
