I have a 90 legend coupe. The lowbeams won't come on. The parking lights work and the highbeams work. The highbeam indicator no longer comes on when the highbeams are on. I checked the fuses for the headlights, they're fine. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks

after i grounded my low beams the high beam indicator light stopped working, i dont know what your problem is but it could possibly be similar... like my low beams being grounded directly to the battery and bypassing the relay made the high beam indicator go out, so if your low beams arent putting out any power it may also be making the indicator not work. i dont know why the low beams arent working in the first place though... pull the bulbs and look and see if the low beam elements are blown. if you have a test light or a voltage reader check the low beam terminals on the plug for power. also check for melted wires at the plug or try shorting the lighting relay to see if they come on that way.

when did this start happening? did you mess with anything underthe hood before hand or hit anything?

oh, and if you need any lighting relays or anything i can get them for you

This just happened two days ago. My daughter-in-law started the car and went to turn on the lights and nothing happened. No work was being done to the car.
I will check the parts that you suggested this weekend and let you know what I find out. Thanks for your imput, I appreciate it.

I believe your coupe uses dual beam headlights weeds... low beam life expectancy has been meet, I suggest you replace both headlight bulbs with new ones.

Highbeam (blue light) indicator bulb is prolly burnt too, get a replacement for that as well, hope this helps!

I tried to check the bulbs today. I was able to get the bulb out of the headlight housing, but I didn't have enough space to press the clip to release the bulb out of the socket. That was the passenger side. To pull the driver's side, I think I would have had to remove the battery. I was short on time...isn't there an easier way?
You would think I was working on an American car, not Japanese. :vomit:
