You should be able to replace just the headlight bulb itself, most cars haven't had sealed beam headlights since the '80s. Assuming that's what you mean by "seal beam". Is it the main beam/dip beam, the high beam, or is it a driving light/fog light (usually mounted down low in the bottom of the front bumper area)?

Problem i am having is a no headlight issue i replaced my icm about a week ago and now i have no lights at all no dash lights no running lights no high beam lights


As far as interior lamps, there may be an interior dimmer, it rotates to increase or lower interior lamps, and usually includes the dash lamps.
If the lo beams work but not the hi beams, have to check headlamp dimmer switch.

Why wont the headights or running lights work on my 2002 Buick LaSabre?


There are several reasons why your headlamps an running lights don't work , the headlamp switch is a good one ,plus relays an the DIM - dash integrated module an associated wiring ! Here is how the headlamps work , right out of Buick factory service info !
The dash integration module (DIM) provides battery positive voltage to the signal circuits of the headlamp switch. The signal circuits include the headlamp switch headlamps on signal, the flash to pass switch signal and the high beam input. With the headlamp switch in the ON position, a ground path is available for the headlamp switch headlamps on signal circuit of the DIM through the headlamp switch. The DIM provides ground to either the headlamps high beam relay control circuit or the headlamps low beam relay control circuit of the low beam circuit. The position of the headlamp dimmer switch determines which relay control circuit has ground. The DIM supplies battery positive voltage to the relay control circuits, if the headlamps are necessary. The fuse block - underhood supplies battery positive voltage to both relay switch circuits. When the low beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both low beam fuses and to the low beam headlamps. The headlamps have ground at G103 and at G401. When the headlamp high beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both high beam fuses and to the high beam headlamps. The high beam circuit is divided into a left and right side circuit. The current flow of the left high beam is from the fuse to the left high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flows to the normally-closed contact of the DRL relay to G103. The current flow of the right high beam is from the fuse to the right high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flow is to ground at G401. When the headlamp dimmer switch lever is pulled toward the driver, the flash-to-pass switch closes. This grounds the DIM flash to pass switch signal circuit. In response to this input, the DIM energizes the HDLP HI BM relay. Both high beams remain on until the driver releases the switch handle. If the low beam headlamps were on during a flash to pass operation, the low beams remain on. The headlights may be switched to high beam with the opposite movement of the headlamp dimmer switch lever.
By running lights , do you mean park lamps or day time running lamps ?
Park, Tail, License and Marker Lamps
The park lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or ON position or anytime the headlights are requested. The fuse block - rear supplies battery positive voltage to the switch contacts of the Park LP relay. When the headlamp switch is in PARK or in ON, the park lamp switch on signal circuit of the DIM has a ground path. The DIM provides battery positive voltage to the control circuit of the Park LP relay. When the park lamps and/or the tail lamps are ON, the DIM energizes the park lamp relay control circuit. This closes the switch contacts. Current flows from the Park LP relay to the LH PARK LP and the RH PARK LP fuses. From the fuse, the current flows to the park lamps. The left park lamps are grounded at G103, G401 and G402. The right park lamps and the right tail lamps are grounded at G103 and G401. The DIMR fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the license lamps and to the DIM instrument panel lamp fuse supply voltage - 1 circuit, for interior lamps dimming. The license lamps are grounded at G401.
The best advice I can give is that you take this to a ASE certified professional repair facility unless your a qualified automotive electric repair person !
Diagnostic Starting Point - Lighting Systems
Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Lighting Systems . The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.

High beam indicator comes on with fog lights


Could your Mazda have daytime running lights? If you checked all fuses, did that include the three in the joint box?

There is an auto light-off control module that is central to all functions you describe. It is assumed that you would only turn on the fog lights with headlights on and set for high beam. If you set the headlight switch to LOW, the module closes the headlight relay to turn on the low beams. If you then turn the headlight switch to HIGH, the module turns on the high beams and allows you to turn on the FOG LIGHT switch, closing the fog light relay and turning on the fog lights. Since this sequence is not working, I suggest checking both high beam lamps as both could be burned out. Other possibilities are a defective headlight switch or the module

Only hi beams work ...no low beams . Lamps and fuses are good. Replaced relay, no change. Keep reading about ground wire from lights can not find it


The wiring schematic changes drasticly depending on whether your vehicle is equipped with daytime running lamps or not. However, both systems have one thing in common...the low beams and the high beams get their grounds from the same place. If the high beams are working correctly, the ground is not your problem. The most common causes of low beams not working and high beams working are the multifunction switch (or as Toyota calls it: "Combination Switch") and if your vehicle has daytime running lamps, the Daytime Running Lamp Module could be the problem.

Can i replace the bulb only on the low beam lights or have to buy the whole casing for it...


Yes, you can replace just the bulb. It's not a sealed unit. There's one phillips head screw that holds in the corner lamp. Then you'll see the outer screws to remove the headlight. On the hood side, carefully peel the rubber off the teardrop shaped plastic holders. Remove the 10mm bolts and the whole assembly should slide right out. Twist the retaining ring (unplug the bulb first) that holds the bulb in. Pull the bulb out. Don't touch the glass on the new bulb as it's halogen and the oil on your fingers will damage it as the bulb heats up. If you do, clean it with rubbing alcohol.

Replace low beam headlamp bulb on Subaru Legacy


Hi Kerry

I am assuming that you are in a left hand drive car.

The casing is only tricky because it is sealed by a rubber seal and is dificult to turn. The direction of turn is indicated on the cover. The cover only turns about half an inch before coming away.
You then undo one spring clip and pull the lamp out on its cable.

Pull the lamp from its cable and replace with the new one(do not touch the glass of the new one as you will put finger grease on it wich will turn black when the lamp gets hot)and put back together.
If your car is Right hand drive You will have to remove the air feed to the air cleaner (just held on by two easy plastic trim clips) and then proceed as above. Colin from UK
