Open the hood. There is a large lever on the top side of most GM models. Lift the lever,, which releases the entire headlight assembly. Be ready to hold onto the assembly when you life the lever. You may want to do a search for the many many many different degrees of lights you have an option to for your vehicle. Normal, long lasting, white light, halogen bright light, normal halogen,, so very many. Be careful NEVER to touch your new blub with your bear fingers. This could cause them to immdiately fail when you turn them on. Make sure that when you put the assembly back into place, and press the lever back down, the lever locks into place. That is the only thing that is holding the entire corner or assembly inplace

2008 Cadillac CTS replace right low beam bulb but still does not work


Using a multimeter, check if you have voltage at the socket with the lights on. If you have voltage (12vdc), I'd suspect a bad bulb.

Using a multimeter with the lights off, you can also check for continuity of the bulb, wiring, & switch.

Cadillac cts ballast


If the bulb has a black plastic base it is a halogen bulb and has no ballast. If it has a metal base it is an HID bulb and the ballast is inside the metal base. The HID bulb looks like this:

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

My brake lights went out on my 2006 cadillac cts. i checked the bulbs and the are fine. I located the fuse box under the back seat but have no clue which one to change.


If all the brake light went out at the same time, then i would look at the brake switch. this is located along the brake pedal somewhere. remove it and play with it and see if will get them going again. if you do get the lights to start working, replace the switch. good luck.

How do you replace the low beam on 2001 cadillac deville? How do you remove the headlight bulb?


Generally the low beams or high beams for that matter are a bulb that connects to a socket that is held in place by a ring or collar that is rotated to release from behind the glass and plastic headlamp assembly. Open the hood to access it, generally.
May have to remove a shroud or plastic paneling to get to it.

If you get your bulbs from the parts store, looking at the base can give you a clue as to how to replace it on the car. Make sure the O-ring seats properly and do not handle the bulb without gloves or shortly after turning off the lights (removing old bulb).

If its a H.I.D. bulb it could be a problem with the ballast or the bulb. More than likely its the ballast.
