nikbait Yeah, I give up. I don't know what else to do.

Sniper Focus Yeah, I was thinking if it could be the headlight switch, if not, then I'm stumped.

nikbait I tried switching fuses, and relays. No go. High beams still not working. Last chance to check the headlight switch and fuses there. If that doesn't work, I have no clue what could be wrong.

nikbait I will try.

Sniper Focus One relay for highs and fogs doesn't sound quite right, I don't think they can operate independently like that. I tried a quick search for what I think is 05 fuse box and it shows separate relays. Double check that you found the right relay and swap it for one that you know works, like the fog relay.

nikbait BUMP, Anyone?!

nikbait HELP! OK, sooo I bought a new turn signal switch. NOT the issue. It did the same thing with the new one, low beams but NO high beams when I went to try it. What is my next step? I am getting really frustrated.

I found the diagrams that I was looking for. In my owner's manual, it says the R5 relay is for the high beams/fog lights. My fog lights work, so does that mean the relay is still good?
And if the relay is still good, does this mean I need to replace the headlight switch along with the turn signal switch??

nikbait Thanks, will do.

I hear ya. Try the buy-sell-trade or want to buy section.
