Re: My light bulb is burnt out...and I dont know how to...
It's called a position light, do you have owners manual, it shows how to replace the bulb under lights, but you don't , all you do is, raise hood, depending on which side you are at it, top left/right there are no wires going to the bulb from backside they are built in headlight housing, it will be a flat tab stick out, 1/2" by 1/2", you need a pair of needle nose pliers to grab it, turn counterclockwise, and pull socket out, takes a w5w GE bulb

I know this may sound strange but these circuits can make all kinds of strange things happen to you lights, but check and make sure no bulbs are burnt out first. If 2 or more other bulbs are burnt out this may cause some strange grounding faults in cars. Check all lights even brakes, running, fog, headlight, side beacons, turn signals, dome lights, dash lights, etc..
I have a 2005 Lexus Rx330 with HID AFS headlight. My passenger side light went out. I thought the bulb burnt out, so I bought a new bulb. After replacing the new bulb, it happened exactly like my old bulb. It light up lightly and then total black out. What's wrong with it? I thought the ballast burnt. I called Lexus dealer and asked for the new ballast/transformer. Surprised me, they don't know what is it. They told me they only know the wiring harness and the socket, but not the ballast ??????? Could you tell me what do I need to replace?
sounds like the bulbs are burnt out, replace the bulbs and if they dont lite then check the fuses, sometimes the fuse blows when bulbs pop.you should be able to acess from under hood, remove cover, unplug headlight connector then remove clip holding light in, then pull light out,watch position of bulb coming out so that new one is installed the same way. hope this helps.
if the DRL light flashes then goes out it means you have a problem with the DRL/Headlight system,most likely a headlight bulb is out make sure you have both bulbs working for high and low beam,,i bet you find one burnt out replace it and you should be ok,,,,there is 2 10mm bolts holding the headlight in fron the top of the panel under the hood, and then there is a clip down under in the rear bottom of the headlight assembly,you gotta push the tab in and pull hard up on the light,,,,then swap the bulb,and see what hapens,should work now
You have to open the hood and go at it from behind the bulb. look behind the light fixture set up and you will see where the light bulb goes. Simply twist off and pull out. the old light bulb will com out also.
When this happens, it means one or two of the halogen headlight bulb(s) has been burnt-out.
Do this quick and easy self-test:
Turn on the headlight switch to LOW and see if you see one (or none) turns on...you'll know one or two lightbulb(s) need to be replaced....this is why the green headlight logo flashed to tell you that a bulb has just burnt-out.
You'll need to remove the 4 black plastic clips that holds the top grille bracket frame onto the top metal frame that's facing the top radiator area.
If you know which headlight's bulb need replacing, just remove the 3 bolts...two are on top and one is by the side (close to radiator area)
Then you pull the grille toward you gently to allow your hand to access behind the grille and headlight area to reach the white socket that's connected to the headlight bulb.
This requires some patient as it's a tight area for your fingers to wiggle the socket off.
When the new lightbulb is installed, the green headlight logo will appear in the instrument panel when you start the engine.
the daytime running lamps are the high beam bulbs connected in a series which puts a lower voltage to them causing them to appear dimmer. if your low beams are not working i'd start by checking the bulbs to make sure they're not just burnt out. then check the fuses. if that doesnt work let me know and i'll help you trouble shoot it further
To all, check your dim bulbs. Make sure they aren't burnt out. If they aren't, time to see if your dimmer/turn signal switch is the problem. For the switch, take it to a mechanic or see if someone else will help ya. Wiring isn't my best subject in autos.
