This is more or likely an earth fault if you are getting power to the bulb. Try cleaning the existing earth cable connections. If that will not solve the problem, try running a new earth from the light to a clean area on the body of the vehicle. I trust this helps you.

Why do all lights work except low beam driver side head lamp?


Seems like if your other low beam is lit, there's something wrong with the new bulb. Make sure it's the exact type needed, and switch the working bulb from the pass. side to drivers side to check.

IF IT WORKS ON HIGHBEAM THEN BAD BULB DO NOT TOUCH BULB GLASS WHEN INSTALLING. CHECK PLUG INTO BACK OF BULB FOR CORROSION, CLEAN AND USE A LITTLE GREASE, TEST BEFORE REINSTALLING

Lowbeam head lights dont't work after changing bulbs


{: ) For the lowbeam headlamps, check these fuses at the underhood fuseblock:
LO HEADLAMP LT 10amp
LO HEADLAMP RT 10amp
HDM 15amp (main power for the HDM relay. Important)
Voltage is always present at the HDM fuse. When you switch on lowbeams, voltage should be present on the LT and RT fuses. Otherwise check the HDM relay or swap it with another known good and similar relay.
Check the two fuses again for votage:
If voltage is now present, proceed with wiring checks, checking for open wiring going to the bulbs.
If voltage is still not present on the two left and right fuses, but the HDM fuse and relay voltages are okay, you may be having a bad fuseblock.

I have a 2002 GMC Denali and my low head lamps both went out at the same time, the high beams work and lows do not? Any ideas?


this strongly sounds like a body control module(bcm). everything is controlled through computer systems, this just happens to be one of the units that controls headlamp operation. prior to replacement of an expensive component, check your power distribution box under the hood on the drivers side. it is aslo possible to have a loose connection under the fuse or relay. check these items first. cheers

Low beam dosent work. bulb is good highbeam works cant find fuse for lights. its not underhood


Hi,
It has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.
Most like the low beam filiment is bad but the high beam filiment is still good, try replacing bulb. If replacing bulb does not fix problem then you probably have voltage problems and should check the voltage reading and the plug.
OR
isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illunimates with the headlight switch on.
check the wires, and check the fuse for your lowbeams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work.

The fuse box is located in the engine compartment,on the driver's side. Has thumb-screw retained cover.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Head lights can be a pain at times but before jumping to conclusions... Have you taken the low beam bulbs out and checked the continuity on them...
The filaments could break and then make a short term contact causing your right lamp to come back on.
Check the bulbs with an ohms meter first before searching for more difficulties.

2007 subaru outback headlight problem


Each head lamp also has it's own relay, you can rule the relay out by swapping the left head light relay with the right head light relay & see if the problem moves to the other side...The relays are also in the same under hood fuse box.
