Question about 1995 Hyundai Sonata

2 Answers

Low Beam Headlights are dim to non existant

Replaced the all fuses except the relay fuse. put in new bulbs, when we turned on the lights they were bright for about 2 seconds then went dim again. So dim that you don't know that they are on.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand could think of only three (3) possibilities:

  • loose ground, you can try determine which of the 3 wires going to the bulb is the ground and then temporarily splice a short piece of electrical wire and connect the other end to the car's exposed metal part;
  • headlight switch, you can try checking with a voltmeter if the +12 going to the dim filament goes down after some time. If it does then it would be the headlight switch or relay if one is used;
  • connectors/terminals, those leading to the headlight should be checked, might be loose or corroded.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

If headlights don't come on on a 2000 Buick Lesabre what do you think is wong


first go for the easy stuff. do the tail lights come on? if so, then will almost guarantee it's bad bulbs in headlights. if tail lights do not come on I would check fuses first relay second. switch third.

Bright lights not working


It would be nice if we knew what first aid you have done so far. If lights, or any other electrical thingy does not work on a car, the first option is to check the fuses. They are clearly marked on the fuse box. If the fuses are OK, check the bulbs. They are designed with two filaments, one for dim, one for bright on each bulb. It is entirely possible that both bright filaments have blown, with the dims still working. The third place to look is at the relays, but it is unlikely, though quite possible, that you have a problem there. The relays are the little black boxes in the fuse box, also marked.
Finally, and entirely unlikely, is the dimmer switch. These have been known to cause a problem but as I say, very unlikely.

My Chrysler 300C left headlight low beam won't light up . I've brought new bulbs and still the left low beam light did not glow! I swapped bulbs around and the left bulb that wasn't working now glowed in...


Check the socket or connections that supply power to the bulb Sometimes the contacts can become corroded. Also, a loose or corroded ground wire can cause a bulb to not work or glow dimly.

I have no low beam headlights. already checked bulbs, fuses, relay and dimmer switch. can you help?


Before you replace the #46 HDM relay (in the fuse block under the hood) try exchanging it with the #45 cooling fan relay and see if your low beam lights work. If they do, the HDM relay (actually solid state module, not a relay) is bad.

Left headlights


Check your connections at the wiring harness going to headlights for corrosion, sounds like high resistance somewhere, also make sure your ground wires are secure. It wouldn't be the alternator or the battery would be dead and not start the engine. Also shouldn't be any condensation in your head light assembly's or will cause bulbs to blow prematurely.

My headlights on my sunfire go off while driving


Right now, I'm thinking the head lamp switch assembly has a problem? See the wire color in the top of head lamp, that is voltage, fuse protected, hot all the time. When problem is ongoing, you could use a test lite, check for voltage at fuse circuit?
The headlamp switch assembly is located on headlamp ground circuit. There could be a wiring problem, somewhere. I can only help with testing.

High beams went out on my 2005 6500 gmc truck. replaced a fuse and also the turn signal- light switch in the steering colum, dims work but the brights do not.


Did you check your bulbs? Both high and low will be in the same bulb. It is possible that thats all it needs
