Unplug the drivers side headlamp. Install a fuse and see if it blows. If it doesn't replace the headlamp. If it does you will need to start tearing into the harness to find the shorted wire. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: how to replace headlights on 2003 hyundaui tiburon

First you'll want to pop the hood open to access the headlights. There will be two bolts on the top which go straight down above the headlight and another on the side closest to the middle of the car that is kind of hidden so you may have to kneel down to see it (So, if you are working on the right headlight the 3rd bolt is on the left and if you are working on the left headlight the 3rd bolt is on the right). As long as you only remove the three bolts that are in the mounts that are connected to the headlight you'll be fine. After you get them out, you have to play a little bit of a wiggle game with the headlight to actually get it out. I found it's best to try to get the left bolt mount out past the little black hard plastic flap in front of it. Don't worry, I always bend it at a 90 degree angle and it hasn't broke yet so don't be too worried to be rough with it. After that, you should be able to pull the opposite side out just enough to get your hand behind and unplug the two connections. Now that the headlight assembly is out just unscrew the caps to access the bulb. There is a metal prong you push down like a safety pin to unlock the bulbs. Then just move that out of the way and the bulbs pull right out with no effort. Just gently place the new bulbs in, flip over the metal clip and push it down to lock the bulb in place and screw the cap back on. To get the headlight back in just reverse the process. Get the outer side of the headlight back in (side farthest from center of vehicle), stick your hand behind it and plug the connections back in, then pull the hard plastic flap out to get the assembly all the way back into place and put the three bolts back in.Sorry this is so long but I figure as much detail as possible will ensure things get done without uncertainty.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the headlights on 2001 hyundai

Pop the hood and you should see two dials (hex shaped plastic screws) on each of the headlight assemblies. One is for your high beams and one is for your low beams. You'll need to measure from the ground up to the center of your bulb and make that marking on the wall for each of your bulbs (so four marks). Then park about 30 feet away from the wall (make sure you're on a level surface that's level with the wall base. If the light says VOR, then the top of the brightest area of the light should line up with the mark. if it says VOL, then the top of the brightest area of the light should line up two inches below the mark.

SOURCE: HOW DO I ADJUST THE LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS TO SHINE

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

2003 yukon XL one headlight is not getting power, how do i troubleshoot?


If low and high beam both are failing to work check the ground for that side . If high or low one works and the other does not check the fuse for that beam as it has 4 fuses one for each side and low and high. The fuses are in the underhood fuse block . Marked as LO HDLP LT, HI HDLP LT, LO HDLP RT and HI HDLP RT . They are 10 amp fuses .

How do I diagnose why one of my headlights will not work?


the h 7 bulb is a quartz halogen bulb and if touched with the bare fingers has an extremely short life
you have to use gloves when handling the bulbs as the oil from the fingers reacts with the glass when in use and blows the bulbs
they will also blow from bad/ loose ground points and if allowed to arc ( as in welding ) will fail quickly
you should get 12 volts to both bulbs at one terminal while the other is the grounding wire
check for problem relays in the power wire

I installed HID headlights and fog lights about 2 months ago and the passanger side went out. i took the drivers side bulb and put it into the passanger side to see if the bulb or the ballast was bad and...


The headlights run through a relay (#46) through the BCM. If the relay were bad (very common and has a recall) both lights would not work. Sooo, I'm thinking check the wiring and pigtail that goes to the bulb. People that use Silverstar halogeon bulbs will burn that wire and or the connector. Make sure these are sound, check for power at the connector too.

Check the fuse box under the hood on drivers side, it will be number 17 and a 10 amp. this vehicle has automatic headlight adustment when you crank the car. If the fuse is blown the lights will point down to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.
