My high beams aren't really "high beams". Does this vehicle have high beams?

Asked by Jan 03, 2017 at 01:23 PM about the 2015 Hyundai Tucson GLS AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had this 2015 Hyundai Tucson for 3 weeks, and have yet to see a
high beam that I am accustomed to.  When I turn them on, I hear the relays
under the hood clicking (and feel them clicking), and there is a "slight"
change in the beam pattern that I see cast on my garage door (which I use
for testing).  But there is literally no difference while driving, except that my
fog lamps turn off when my highs are on.  

I am new to the projector lamps as well as Hyundai Tucsons.  Do these
vehicles have poor lighting or am I missing something?

I have replaced the headlamps and all the fuses are good.  The 9012
single-filament halogen bulb is new to me too.  I'm not sure how high AND
low beams are produced from a single filament.  

Can anyone "shed some light" on this for me?  Sorry for the intended pun.
:)

Have someone operate the dimmer while you look at the head lights to see if they work properly. Since your car in under warranty take it in to the dealer.
