Look in the o/m for a relay in the fuse panel that controls the headlights it's not a fuse its a little silver box about the size of the search box on this page sometimes these will go bad and cause the headlights to cycle

Both low beams dont work. I checked the bulbs and fuses. O.K.


It could possibly be the head light switch. Unplug the head light connectors and test them with a voltmeter with the headlight switch turned on. If that fails test the fuse ( both sides ) if that still fails, then its pointing to the switch.

Need to change the left side low beam headlight.


It might be hard to get to like that. You will see a silver metal bar with a 90 degree angle at the top that goes straight down behing the headlight assembly, which you can pull up on. It holds the headlight in. Once you pull this up pust the headlight slightly sideways as there is a plug holding the headlight in at the back, then just pull forward to give youself space to work. Clip off the two clips and slide the back cover off then you can change the bulb out.

05 Renault Grand Scenic. No dipped headlights. Bulbs and fuses OK


Are u sure that the bulbs are OK? I had no dipped lights on mine, & thought it must be a fuse or another electrical fault. It turned out, both bulbs had gone. I think this often happens when one side goes, the other soon follows.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


AUDI A4- 2005. There is a technical service bulletin for this exact problem. take it to the dealer when this issue has happened while driving. During a daytime drive when cold see if you cant get the light to fail while circling your dealer. As soon as you pull into the service drive do not turn the car off do not flip the switch. I am an Audi Technician for a dealer in Birmingham alabama. Personally this is not my favorite repair to perform; What audi states is that if the bulb flickers the bulb should be replaced; if one side fails the bulb should be swapped left to right if the fault continues with the bulb the bulb is at fault; if the bulb is swapped and the bulb fails again on the same side it is the module. NOW: I currently am working on a 05 A4 that both bulbs both modules have been replaced and Audi has no clue what to advise on a repair. THIS IS AN ISSUE if it has happened to you ask if there is a TSB for this issue or try to find it for yourself.
