High beam problem

My drivers side high beam is not working. I have checked the bulb, which is fine and there is no fuse that I can find that is blown. I don't know what is wrong or what else to check. Anyone have any suggestions.

Its a 2001 4.3

Thanks

Re: High beam problem

Did you pull the DRL relay?, if you did one of the high beams won't work I don't remember which one, I haven't used my high beams since I installed the H.I.D.'s

Re: High beam problem

the DRL Relay is inside the fuse box in the engine compartment, correct? If so my headlight stopped working before I pulled it.

Pull the grounds on both sides, clean them up with sand paper, do the same with where they attach to, if that doesn't work, have the bulbs tested...Though I suspect it's mnore the bulb than ground because your low beams are working..

Re: High beam problem

I will give it a try but I have already switched my high beam bulbs and they both work.

Re: High beam problem

If my problem is with the DRL Relay how do I fix that. Do I just have to buy a new one.

Re: High beam problem

Yes or, for testing purposes you can pull one of the other relays in the box to try it out.
