Hi beams

I dont know why, but my high beams do not seem to work. I put them on, it flashes a second then goes low beams again. Can anyone help? 2009 jku. Thanks! Wavey

Are you pushing or pulling the stalk to get the brights to come on? I know for me, my Ford Focus you pull it towards you for hi-beams but for the JK you push it away from you towards the front.

It happens either way. It flickers, light on dash says the his are on, but there is no real change in headlights other than that initial flicker.

Do you normally drive with your fogs on? If so they turn off when the hi beams are on, and the lights suck, so I find that I get more light with low beams and fogs than with just high. The flicker you se is the fogs turning off. Or at least that's my guess.

Push the stalk away from you for constant and pull towards you to flash.

Yes, i know how to flash my hi's and when I put them on solid I just get the flash. As for the fogs, I wired them up after market to a separate switch, so thats not it either. Thanks for the replies. If anyone has other ideas Id love to hear them. Thanks!

Is the detent in the stock broken. When you push it away for HB does it stay there or pop back?

Lights are controlled by the TIPM.
Here's a quote from my 08 Service Manual:

HEADLAMPS WILL NOT SWITCH FROM HIGH TO LOW BEAMS, OR FROM LOW TO HIGH BEAMS
1. Ineffective EMIC (CCN) inputs or outputs.
1. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the EMIC (CCN) inputs and outputs. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.

2. Ineffective TIPM inputs or outputs.
2. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the TIPM inputs and outputs. Refer to the appropriate


Sorry, but that's all the info I could find.

Electro Mechanical Instrument Cluster (EMIC) module (Instrument Cluster)

Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) (in simple terms, the fuse/relay box)

Could also be a problem with your turn signal stalk. I replaced mine when I was having problems with my interior light coming on at random times. Fixed the problem and was less than $40.00
