Question about 2003 Nissan Sentra

Check engine light

I put a new headlight bulb in my car yesterday and this morning my check engine light came on. Could there be a relationship between the two and how could I check before taking it to the shop?
Thanks

    So, I went to Autozone and they said it was a problem with the throttle position sensor. A week and a half ago, I had to get a "new" used engine put into my car, so I'm guessing it's related to that.

Head to your local Autozone Auto parts store and ask then to put their code reader on it. They will give you or at least tell you what trouble codes may have activated your check engine light. A blown buld will not activate the Check engine light

    There ya go.. On some vehicles the Throttle Position Sensor has ben be set to a certain degree. It could be as simple as a minor adjustment to the sensor (rotate it a bit) or the sensor has failed and needs to be replaced. Some sensors can be replaced by a DIY'er with a simple remove and replace and the adjustable ones would need a scan tool/data reader to set properly.

My main headlight flashes when I put my off side indicator on please help if you can?


Check the headlight grounds, even if they are tight turn the screw holding them to the inner fender near headlight a little to dislodge corrosion. Also check the headlight connectors (including at the head light bulbs) for signs of heat damage, you can smell burnt plastic and the brass connectors will be discolored.

The headlight passenger side on my 1992 Nissan truck is out I have changed the light and plug still not working


Did you inspect and clean the connection fitting? You should also use a bulb connector fitting lubricant...did you touch the new bulb with finger grease or any dirt? These headlight bulbs are extremely sensitive to hand oil...the connection sounds serviceable...Hope this helps.

Headlights not working


The new headlights, probably blew the fuse check the fuse and relay if so get a bigger fuse to run the new headlights. Remember when replacing any light in your vehicle to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your bare fingers..

Changing headlights


Suggest changing the clip fastener, or failing that, find some adaptation.

2005 equinox, headlights won't turn on, brigts work okay.


I had the same light issue a few weeks ago. There is just a single light bulb with dual filaments for the high and low beams. All you need to do is replace the light bulb. The instructions are in the owners manual.
