Customer Question
The low beam headlights...

The low beam headlights arent working

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Mazda. The Mazda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

But the highbeams are working

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

I've tried checking some fuses but I haven't found one that needs to be replaced.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mazda Mechanic should be aware of about your Mazda?

Its a 2003 Tribute

Hello, my name is***** most likely means the headlamp switch has failed. Unplug headlamp switch and ground the light green/black wire, if low beams turn on you need to replace the headlight switch. Let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.

I'm not sure where the headlamp switch is, how would I find it? What would it be connected to?
Mazda Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

It is knob on column you use to turn on headlights. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
