My 2000 4WD Toyota Hilux has one headlight that only works when on high beam.
I'm pretty ignorant in these matters but assume it's a fuse?

Can anyone suggest what the issue might be and how to solve it?

Cheers, Stu

Nope blown filament unless it has a slight glow (like a parking light) then it is the fuse.

As said, the low beam filament is gone.
If it is an original headlight (i.e not been replaced before) then you will have to replace the entire headlight, not just a bulb, as these are a sealed unit (I know - I have one). These rectangle headlights are common on many vehciles, not just hilux.

Can do one of 2 things:
1/ Buy a new aftermarket pair from ebay, that are designed so you can change the bulb. I did this on a previous vehicle, cost about $60-70 for the 2 headlights, and end up with a better light than the original.
2/ Buy a single rectangle sealed beam type unit that you currently have from an autoparts shop - cost about the same as the ebay ones, but not as good a light.
