Not the dreaded laguna again ,always electrical problems with these motors ,well this time i cannot see the fault as the relay as only one relay not one for each side so check the loom out first in case a mouse has had a chew and the headlight wire is picking up a feed from say the rad fan or ? also check it out as just incase their is a relay for each side of the headlights as i just havent had this problem before to know whats what but word of caution with this car be careful what you touch as they do like to activate the immobilisor and lock themselves so make sure a window at the back is open whilst you play with it .Best of british with it from spain

SOURCE: Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

SOURCE: 2001 subaru outback headlight not working

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SOURCE: Low beam, driver's side headlight

The low beam bulb needs to be replaced. Go to an autozone store as they will sell you the bulb, and even assist you in their parking lot with installing it.

Prius headlights work only on highbeam


There should be separate fuses for high and low beams on a Prius. If one of your headlight bulbs is bad, it could have blown the low-beam fuse. Check for blown fuses behind driver's side headlight fuse panel. If new one blows, replace headlight bulbs and try again.

On 2004-2009 Prius, driver's side headlamp bulb can be replaced by removing hold down screws and folding fuse panel upward to access rear of headlight assembly. Large round cover with 3 tabs unscrews about 1/4 turn to remove. It's really tight and held by friction of large O-ring so it'll take some muscle but it will eventually give. Be careful replacing bulbs as metal clips can be easily installed incorrectly resulting in tilted headlight beam. 3-tabs must rest on flat surfaces on mounting area before spring clip can be latched in place. 3-prong plug can be wiggles sideways/up and down to remove from bulb.

Which fuse should i change for my headlights ?


Look at your fuse panel board either under the dash board on drivers side or possibly under the hood depending on vehicle. It will tell u which fuse is for the headlights.

Or from the sounds of it... Possible head light bulb burnt out and not a fuse. A headlight fuse should not be popping or burning out. I would suggest looking at the filament on the bulb to see if intact. Replace broken head light bulb with working other working headlight to eliminate one possibility. If it works buy a new bulb. If it doesn't look at fuse panel.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

The drivers side headlight on my 2002 Saab won't


This is probably a problem with the orange headlight relay under the hood in the relay black box. Take the relay out and clean contacts and put back in. If does not fix, try a new relay or swap with another 9-5 to troubleshoot.

Blown front headlight on a toyota 4runner 1993 hilux 4x4. How do I get to it to change it? Is it a sealed unit or just a bulb replacement?


In most cars they are just bulbs. On the driver side, if the battery is located on this side, you may need to remove this to get to it. It is a good idea, and suggested to disconnect the battery anyway when dealing with any type of electrical repair.

Once you remove the battery, look behind the headlight and you'llsee the backing of the light, and the back of the bulb socket. There will be two or three wires (usually two) that come out of it.

Turn the socket counter clockwise to unscrew it from the insertion point, and lightly pull out. Do the same for the bulb, or some just pull out and push in.

Put new bulb in, and turn the socket clockwise to tighten in place.

Put battery back in, hooking up the ground first, then the positive. Turn key (or lights on if they work without the key on) and run on headlights.

If it comes on, you're good to go. If not, on some vehicles, when one light goes out, it affects other, however this is usually not common for headlights.

If it does not come on, check the fuse in the fuse box under the dash (or sometimes in the glove compartment) as well as any relays or fuses under the dash in the black box near the battery.

On either the top of the cover for both fuse locations, or the inside of the cover you will see a diagram indicating which fuse is linked to certain components. Find any that are linked to the headlamps (headlights) and other lighting components, i.e. turn signals, tail lights, etc as each will sometimes have seperate fuses, but the wiring is linked at some point.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

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.
