Low beam headlights not working

Have a 2000 corolla

All fuses are good
both light bulbs are new
High beams work fine
No other lights are out
Low beams will not go on

What could be the problem? A relay or a short are my two guesses

    Unfortunately, I'm having the same problem with my brake light. Fuses and bulbs are good, but the left brake light is still not on when I brake. I'm also looking for some help.

    A short would result in a blown fuse, so, if your fuses are all good, I would eliminate that. Do you have a 12 volt test lamp? Turn the low beams on, and remove the wiring connector from the low beam bulb. Hook the test light clip to the battery negative terminal, and poke the pointy end into each of the 3 terminals on the low beam bulb connector. Advise me if your test lamp illuminates, and which colour wire the lamp illuminates on. Thne we can diagnose your problem further. Thanks.

My brake light on my 1990 geo, Right side did the same thing. It was the ground wire on the light itself. It had gotten hot and was not getting good contact, so I put a small bolt with a nut on it thru the plastic light panel to help it make contact to the ground.

High beams work for both lights, 1 low beam does not


Check for power with a test light with the light connected. If you have power then its the ground. If no power then you will need to trace the wire back to find break. As I recall they did have seperate fuse for left and right headlight high & low beam. Also did you get a defective new bulb?

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

One low beam head lights will not work, high beam works though


check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse

I have a 1999 Corolla, and both headlights suddenly stopped working. The low beams don't work, but the high beams do. The fuses are fine.


low beam is a bulb on its own,usually under the big main bulb.the main big bulb works your normal night time driving and your high beam,ie.flashers.if 1 low beam has blown its more than likley a power serge blown the other side as they run off the same wiring.hope this helps.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

Headlights out


You need to change the head light bulbs, they have two elements one for normal lighting and one for high beams, the low beam elements on those light bulbs are burnt, install new ones and you'll fine. Good Luck

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.
