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.

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.

I have a 2005 dodge caravan. the headlights have


On the van you have a high beam fuse and relay. On the low beam you also have a fuse and relay. Check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse controlling the low beam lights. If you do not find a blown fuse have some one to turn the key on and turn on the high beam lights> During this time locate the low beam headlight relay and place your finger on top of relay, have the other person to switch from high beam to low beam lights. You should feel a click in the relay when they make the switch from high to low beam. If not replace the relay and the problem should go away. Hope this will help you.

Left low beam is inoperative. Replaced both bulbs,


I had the same problem with my 2001 Forester. Try this as a low-cost and easy repair attempt: buy brand new fuses and replace both L/H and R/H fuses. If one of your fuses is marginal, your headlights will exhibit this problem. Replacing my headlight fuses with brand new ones solved my situation.

My headlights on my 2000 monte carlo does not work


Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.

I have no headlights!! parking lights, taillights,and blinkers all work fine. none of my fuses or bulbs are blown


I have a 2004 ram 2500 and all my lights work except for low beams. It is not in the switch, I haver replaced the switch with no change. This is a circuit problem with these dodge pickups. I haven't firgured out what it is but it isn't the switch. and unless the low beams and high beams are fused seperate, it isn't a fuse problem either. i have looked for a fuse and can't even find the fuse for the headlights. Im lost like you!

Look under the hood.
There is a large relay which should have some info about lights on it.
