High Beam Help

Finally got everything wired back up and everything works except the high beams. Headlights come on as they should but when I hit the high beam switch they go off completely. Any ideas/advice?

Same problem but instead of the switch it was the way I wired the headlamp; I had electric feedback to the high beam warning light.

Jeff, can you elaborate? Not sure I follow what your are saying. I suspect it's a wiring issue though becuase everything worked when I took it apart.

Have you done the wiring to the bulb? I had to do the wiring that connects to the bulb (headlamp) and I mistakenly interchange the positions. It's a 3 pin connector but if you interchange them.... That was my mistake. When I flick the high beams on the energy was going back to the high beam warning light (blue witness in the dash) and made it glow real bright. The headlamps were working alright into the "ON" position but as soon as I try using the high beam..... nothing.... If it can help you out, I confess my mistake.. Laugh at me if you want now! =) You might know the old French saying : "Sometimes being too close to tree makes you forget you're in a forest".

Does anyone know if there is a relay associated with the high beams? The wiring diagram doesn't really show them but I can hear one click with the low beams. The relays are not labeled.

no relays associated with the headlights at least on a 95 - i assume the 89 is the same way.
