Question about 2002 Nissan Altima

Passenger side low beam headlight on a 2002 nissan altima

Ok here we go try to follow me. I had a head light go out. When I went to replace it the grounding clip that holds the bulb and grounds it broke. so while the switch for the headlight was on I was trying to get the bulb to stay on cause with my hand on it I would make a good ground contact and the light would come on. After a few minutes of messing with it I noticed a spark and don't know exactly where it came from. But the bulb would no longer come on. I thought I broke the bulb so I went and bought another one. I installed it and also didnt work no matter what I did. I removed the driver headlight assembly and even though its not a form fit to the passenger side I plugged it in. All the lights come on but the low beam. same as the original assenbly. I went ahead and tried installing the passenger one on the driver side and it also didn't work. I believe I have 2 problems. Please help I can't afford to go to the dealer and get robbed.

When you got the spark chances are you shorted the receptacle for the bulb on the low side you should check the fuse for this . the drivers side low beam worked before so i would say you blew the fuse. on the passenger side check for broken ,frayed ,or loose wires in the light harness and the plugs them selves chances are you will find a short in them. please rate this solution

Low beam headlight doesn't work after replacing with 3 new ones. Any suggestions?


My 2003 Altima had a similar issue...Long story, short....I located a blown fuse (location 49 & 50) for the low beams in the IPDM E/R and replaced it. The headlight worked right away. My IPDM E/R was under the hood close to the front passenger side head light and coolant bottle.

How to change the low beam bulb on driver and passenger sides


the low beam bulb is one with the high beam ,so you need to replace the headlight bulbs, its hard to believe they both went at the same time,i would buy one and replace it if lights still don't work than you might have other issues like maybe a blown fuse.

2004 Nissan Altima passenger side low beam


Hi,
Just a thought... If with the bulb not burning, you can verify that the voltage supply wire is "hot" and you know the bulb is good, you probably just have a grounding issue. If you can check the ground wire against the hot wire and get voltage, I'd suspect the problem is in the bulb socket or socket connection.
I bet you can figure it out... :o)
Hope this helps... I hate paying big bucks for dealership repairs too. Good luck!

No low beam head lights


If you just want to replace the bulb yourself, this is a good website.
http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Nissan-Altima-Headlight-Bulb/Nissan-Altima-Passenger-Side-Headlight.htm
If the website does't get your headlight fixed... You might have a blown fuse. It could be in the IPDM E/R location under the hood. This is next to the coolant bottle. Remove the coolant bottle with two screws and lift the cover to the IPDM E/R. Just set the coolant bottle aside for now. The low beam fuses are 49 and 50. They are 15A fuses. To be more precise, they are located on row 2, columns 2 and 3 (column 1 being closest to the fender of the car). Hope this helps.
