89 Chev 4 x 4 Headlights

Checking my lights yesterday I noticed on low beam the two outside ones come on. On high beam, the outside ones go off and the two inside come on. Is this normal, the book doesn't say anything about it.

Every 4 headlight system I've ever seen, on high beam all 4 lights should be on. Correct?

headlights

If you have had this same operation since new, then it's normal. I have a 2002 Silverado, and it has the same feature.
Many vehicles from the late 80's have been setup this way.

There are kits available that will allow just the outside lights on at low beam and all 4 will light up with high beam. You'll just have to check with Whitney, or others for the kit. That is, if you want it. What you experience is normal, however.

Thats normal operation for the headlights.
I had a tough time explaining this vehicle inspection time as the tester said they were burnt out. Wrong!
