    loose connection, blown fuses, faulty relay. Some things to look at.
    I take it you have installed LED globes in place of the Halogen globes.
    Could be a bad globes also.

    From what you have stated, your car is UNROADWORTHY. Continuing to drive it using only high beam is both dangerous and irresponsible. Suggest you get the vehicle checked by an Auto Electrician.

    Find the main beam relay in the fuse box - have someone switch on the lights whilst holding your finger on the relay - if you can feel it clicking - look for loose lead. If not replace relay.

    Doesn't the change-over of halogen to LED lights, either internal and external, trigger a fault somewhere in the line of computers?
    I seem to recall something of this nature being mentioned here.

    Put standard halogen bulbs in. You'll reap the benefits including: reduced unwanted attention from blinded disgruntled drivers, lesser chance of being defected for illegal modifications, decreased probability of being involved in a nighttime multi car accident, a greater chance of your insurance company covering you in the event of an accident and your car *may* be in a roadworthy condition provided the rest of the car's up to scratch!

    I replaced the entire headlight units with LED projector headlights and then put HID gloves on them and I never got any fault codes.
