problem #5

Feb 202006

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 268,000 miles
On multiple occasions, the low beam headlights suddenly stopped working. High beams and other lights all work. The low beams came back on after 1/2 hour the first two times, but now are not working again. I found several complaints about this problem in online discussion forums (for example: www.automotivehelper.com/topic303104.htm ), and the problem apparently involves wires that are pinched in the steering column due to the design of the tilt wheel. This is a very dangerous problem when driving at night and the lights suddenly go out.
