I have a 1996 chevy silverado 1500. Shine on into the night with upgraded Headlights. All repair info says when doing testing around steering column to disarm air-bag for safety. If that wire isn't hot, suspect dimmer switch. You can easily control the low and high beam headlight functions from inside the passenger compartment. I have several friends with similar year chevys that have the same problem. You can also buy your K1500 headlight online and use our Same Day Store Pickup option to get it fast, or benefit from home shipping.
I didn't want to make any more connections to the battery so I did this over at the fuse box. The switch is connected to a 12-volt power supply that runs through your Chevy. The info I looked at was for sealed beam, not quad. The 1996 Chevy 1500 was manufactured with sealed beam headlights and composite headlights. Headlight housings fade and fog up over time even without cracks or holes. When activated, electricity is sent to the headlights, which are then powered up.
There is probably a multiwire connector under the dash, close to steering column, that is for circuits going to and from the steering column. The headlights stopped working 2 years ago. If the circuit is hot and no low beam, we''ll have to check drl relay and wiring circuit. I always drove with the parking lights on and the daytime running lights since. The low beam circuit goes through the dimmer to the drl relay, When the relay isn't energized, there is continuity on the low beam circuit to headlamp. New Headlights keep your vehicle looking fresh. The high beams work but I get some hard looks using them.
The high beam circuit is straight off the dimmer switch. Sealed beam headlights mean the entire light assembly needs replacement when a bulb burns out, while composite headlights mean the bulb needs replacement. Own your ideas with C1500 Pickup. Now the daytime running lights stopped working. Add some new appeal to the front of your ride with new Headlights. So I made it so that the low beams stay on when the high beams are turned on. Check purple wire for voltage.
Replacing your C1500 headlight housing restores the output, performance, and appearance of your driving lights, high beams, and turn signals. . During this mod I discovered a voltage drop problem through the headlight circuits which will be addressed in an upcoming video. Level the competition with C1500 Pickup. Different models of the vehicle used one headlight system or the other. Let others know you are coming with some different Headlights.
Haul away those boring parts and replace them with C1500 Pickup. Can someone point me in the right direction. Go to your local AutoZone and ask our helpful staff for advice on any automotive topic. Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more! Since I've been driving this truck more I noticed that the high beams suck. This greatly reduces their output and in turn, your ability to see and drive safely diminishes as well. When a headlamp blows out on your Chevy 1500, you should replace it immediately to ensure your safety while driving.

The purple wire I mentioned carries voltage for low beam to drl relay. . . . . .
