High Beam headlights not working

We changed the relay and the high beams are not working. All other lights work. The high beam indicator (blue) light inside on the dash comes on when the car is turned off and stays on until the car is started again. What is the fix?

Have you looked at a wiring diagram of the specific vehicle you are trying to diagnose.

Thank you for your reply.
No I don’t have any knowledge of that type of thing.
I just had not headlights at all and I got a new relay and I put it in. Now I have lowbeam and no high beams.

What was the purpose of the "new relay"?
Was it intended to fix something that was not working properly?

Yes the headlights went out. No high or low beams. Relay was very hot. It melted some of the cover.

Welcome to the forums!

Did you git an aftermarket relay or OEM one? What is the part number of the original relay?

It's possible that the wiring harness may be damaged. Have you carefully inspected it fer any damage? Has this vehicle been in an accident before?

Thank you for your replay
OEM Relay
Front end damage from hitting a deer.
Replaced the grill and headlight.
Both high and low beams worked at first.
Then the high beams went out.
Then all the headlights went out.
Then after the new relay was put in the bright light indicator light (blue) on the instrument panel stay illuminated the entire time the key is off.
But it goes off after I start the van.

I would go over the wiring harness very carefully to make sure it wasn't damaged during the accident. It would be easy fer the wiring to git nicked and some part of the wiring harness is bleeding current over to another circuit that shouldn't be energized.
