Headlight highbeams issue?
So i was trying to turn on my highbeams last night and it didnt seem like they were working. Ive got the zx4 st and have foglights. Is there any issues with the highbeams? I looked in my owners manual and there is not much regarding the highbeams.

The bulbs are probably burnt out. There is a separate filament for the High and Low beams inside the bulb itself. If you replace them and they still don't work then I would start looking at fuses and relays.

Thats what i was thinking but wasnt totally sure. Ill get some new bulbs tomorrow. Thanks.

I'd say replace the turn signal switch (multifunction switch ). If it were one side, I'd say a bulb. But with both being out, the switch is probably bad.

Well i replaced both bulbs and that wasnt im gonna replace the switch like u suggested.

Bummer and sorry that didn't work.

Well the bulbs that were in there looked like they were on the way of burning out so no biggie.

Sounds like a good opportunity to write up a "How-To" for the forum [hihi]

I havent ever done one but i can:)

Checked fuses, all fuses seem to be in working order, other than the turn signal switch, is there something else that could be causing the highs to not work? I have replaced the bulbs, which wasn't the problem to begin with....Fog Lights work when turned on...
