Default Low beams not functioning

Dear Team,

I drive a less than 3 year old, 60K kilometer run Ford Figo.

It has a HID kid (H4) running on the stock reflectors since the stock headlights were not sufficient for my driving. All was ok for a few months but now problems have cropped up.

Problem number 1:
The headlight flasher stalk got stuck in the high-beam position. The guy in the accessories shop where I installed the kit suspected that the wiring for the kit has gone bad and so we got the wiring re-installed. The problem persisted so he suggested that the headlight flasher switch is kaput. This was confirmed as the indicator on the console was also stuck in the high beam position.

At this point when we disconnected the hid kit and installed a normal H4 bulb and both the filaments were glowing.

The relays were working fine and we swapped the relays still the result was the same. So the headlight flasher switch was changed. Moving on to problem number 2.

Problem number 2:
The head light flasher switch was replaced and now the light in the console is alternating properly and we can hear the relay getting actuated. However the low beam refuses to glow and the same was confirmed with a normal bulb. Power supply seems to be fine up-to the relay and then there seems to be no supply to the low-beam.

What could be problem here? The HID kit seems to not be the culprit as the low-beam does not work even with the kid disconnected.

Power supply is available up-to the fuse-box.

Any pointers would be helpful.

Thank you.

Regards,
BL

tl;dr:
No power to low beams, low beam relay is getting actuated but no supply beyond that. High beams are working fine.

@Mods
Searching the forum leads to topics with only the bulbs or the relay kaput, hence the new thread

But that would make even the high beam faulty right?

Or am I missing something?

Problem solved!

The issue was with the new headlamp flasher switch which turned out defective.

Another new switch was used and all is Ok!
