2012 traverse headlight

Asked by Apr 02, 2018 at 07:27 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just changed the low beam headlight bulb on the
passenger side.  Now the brights won't come on
and stay on when I switch the lever towards the
dash.   They will come on when I pull the lever
towards me, like to flash the brights.  They worked
before I changed the bulb.  And the bulb I took out
doesn't look burned out.  The filament is still intact,
too.  Any ideas?

1 Answer


The low beams as you already know are separate bulbs H11. If the high beams work one way but not another, it almost sounds like you have a multi switch, which is your wiper and turn signal stalk/switch. You might also have a wiring issue if the high beams work one way but not another.
