Hi Beam Not Working


Recommended Posts

I have a 2004 Base Boxster. I noticed last night that when I pull the signal light lever I can "flash" my hi beam and the blue light shows up on the instrument cluster and the hi beams come on. Accordingly it would seem the hi beams work and there is nothing wrong with indicator light. However when I push the lever into the permanent hi beam light on position, the hi beams do not turn on and there is no hi beam light on the instrument cluster.

Any ideas as to what might be wrong?

Is it likely I have a problem with the control stalk?

Yes, it is your high- beam stalk . Dealer will probably tell you the whole stalk switch assembly needs to be replaced and that can be steep=$$$, but if you know how to pull the air bag & steering wheel out then "you can do it". So I thought this might be able to help you.

post-23680-1192137627_thumb.jpgThis is when the stalk is pushed towards the front of the car, in proper high beam position. Note the contacts.(your situation)

so, bent the high-beam actuation arm a little!
