Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
I have replaced the fuse for the headlamps within the past 6 months because both of my headlamps were not working; the same thing is happening again. Is this an electrical issue??

Open the hood, Look at where a long cable goes into the headlamp. There should be 3 screws holding the bulb in place. Take out the screws. The bottom screw might be hard to find but it is under the cable where the cable attaches to the headlamp. Once the screws are out, the bulb will come out of the headlamp still attached to the cable. The cable has a black covering around it. There is a plastic notch just above the bulb. Press it. It was a little hard to find. While you press the plastic notch, pull the bulb side (don't grab onto the bulb head itself, but just a little past the bulb) and the cable side apart. They are pretty tight, so you will have to pull hard. When the bulb side comes off the cable side, the cable will reveal a three-prong outlet. The bulb side will have three prongs that plug into the cable. At this point, bulb and cable are completely detached. Now, throw the bulb away, and go and buy a new one (10 bucks). PLug it into the cable, and then rescrew the whole thing (only 3 screws here) back into the set. Hope this helps. Only takes a few minutes. you only had to loosen one screw (and that might not even be necessary). This allowed a spring to be released. The other 2 screws were for the reflector and a hold-down tab for the spring. Simply release the spring from under the hold-down tab. An important addition worth adding to this procedure is "DO NOT TO TOUCH THE GLASS" on the new bulb. Wear clean gloves or use clean shop towels. The oil/ sweat etc. from your skin will greatly shorten the life of the bulb.

check for any circuit brakers near the fuse box, if theres any of them reset them by introducing a paperclip in the small hole and press, you will hear a click.

absolutely not the timing belt has no connection to headlights,first locate and check any headlamp related fuses located in either fuse box underhood or in dash area if no lights on high or low beam may pull headlight bulbs and check unlikely both go bad @ once this may end up being multifunction switch on steering column your turn signal lever is what you pull back on to switch rom high beam to low beam correct? if so this switch can cause your problem
