Question about 2004 Honda Element

Headlights don't work

I assumed it was the lights so I replaced the halogen lights. Still didn't work. I checked the fuses. Still doesn't work. All the other lights work and the car is running fine. What is wrong?

    What switch? On the steering column or something in engine area? I do remember the high beams went out first.

Headlights not working


The new headlights, probably blew the fuse check the fuse and relay if so get a bigger fuse to run the new headlights. Remember when replacing any light in your vehicle to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your bare fingers..

I've replaced the bulb, the passenger side headlight is still out. My feeling is the problem is electrical but I'm not sure.


Im assuming that you have check the fuses for the headlights and they are good.If your headlight is HID(Hight Intenstiy Discharge Xenon bulb) The headlight assembly will have a balast that might be defective.Deferentiating the Halogen from HID.Halogen will have a yellowish color when you turn on the headlights whereas the HID will have a whitesh to bluesh in color.If your clk320 does have a halogen then its highly probable you have an electrical problem but if its HID then you might want to replace the balast.

My headlights have quit working on my 1994 Chevy 1500 pickup. I replaced the headlight switch but they still don't work. The parking lights come on but not the headlights


Try checking both a; your fuses, and b; check your bulbs. You should have two fuse boxes, one under hood and one in or under the dash. Check those for bad, blown or weak fuses. And check your headlights bulbs for them being good and their connection. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may check out your highbeam switch.

High Beam headlights don't work, Taillights don't work, Brake lights don't work, Cruise control doesn't work.


Hi Harlan.

I see that you mentioned a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan in your other question. I assume this question is about the same vehicle.

The checkup will start from the fuse and relay in the power distribution center. A way to test the relays is swapping two relays of the same kind to check if that makes any difference.
If relay and fuse are OK check the wiring to power distribution center, check the dimmer switch and the connection to BCM (the module under the dash).

I have uploaded relay map and wiring diagram at this link. Please click on the link. If necessary click on the picture again to enlarge.

Regards.

Blinker lights on front and rear of 1995 olds cutlass supreme don't work. Emergency flashers work. Replaced the switch behind (to the left) the steering column and didn't resolve. Assuming it...


If all the bulbs are good, it could be the multi-stalk arm switch. Jiggle the arm all around, the switch could be dusty, or lightly corroded.

If all else fails pull all fuse's that you can't check when installed.

My daughter has a 04 Kia optima that did not come with a manual. Both of her lowbeam headlights aren't working. I am assuming they didn't just blow together. Could it be a fuse and if it is do you...


check your fuses (all of them if you have to) for any that are blown. there is a slight chance that one quit and she didn't notice it and the other finally died. also under the hood near the battery you should be able to locate another fuse panel. take off the lid and try to locate the relay for the headlights it may have failed.
