Customer Question

hello Randall,hello Randall,
I have a 2004 Elantra hatchback. The low beam do not work. High beam lights work. I have a Fluke meter, checked low beam lights for resistance both have 2 ohms. checked low beam 15 amp under the hood, it is OK. Both high and low beam relays have the same numbers on them. so I switched them. Still no low beam. I removed Low beam 15 amp fuse and low beam relay. Turned the key to ACC and checked voltage on the low 15 amp it read batter voltage the low beam relay read battery voltage as well. So I am thinking that the low light switch on the left of the steering wheel. Have i missed somethang??work. High beam lights work.

Do you have a circuit tester? I would like you to check the ground side for continuity and resistance.
