First the two simple things to rule out:

Check the bulb. It may simply be a burnt out bulb.

Check the fuses. Looking at the fuse, there is a metal piece that runs the area of the fuse. If the metal in the middle is broken (link), you should replace. After replacing the fuse, if the light works, stops working, and you have another blown fuse, you may have a short somewhere. In that case, refer below.

Check to see if there is a wiring issue. It is possible that the inside of the headlight got wet or damaged and shorted out. I suggest getting the wires tested at this point.

I have a 1994 geo metro. The headlights went out. I checked the fuses. They were ok. The ground wire in the under dash fuse box looked discolored. I made a ground and the left side head light came on...


On these cars the headlights get power from a right and left fuse and the headlight / dimmer switches provide the ground circuit. Both headlights are connected to one ground wire for high and one for low beam. So if one works and the other does not, the problem should be in the wiring before the headlight switch. Red is for high beam and red-white is for low beam. You should be able to jumper the red-white wire on the right headlight and make the low beam circuit for both sides work to test it.

Dipped headlights are intermittent


Look for the RELAYS for the lights. They are usually on the fuse box. Replace the headlight relay.

1986 Supra. Head lights pop up but does not turn on.


the headlight pop-up circuit is different from the lights themselves. Check the headlight fuses in the engine compartment fuse box. If the fuses are good then check the headlight relay. It is in the same fuse box just behind the headlight fuses. (The headlight relay is the second relay from the right side of the fuse box. the relay at the far right is the electronic fuel injection main relay.)

Which fuse is for the headlights on a 2005 toyota corolla


There are two headlight fuses (left and right) located in the engine bay. Check the headlight bulbs first. The headlight bulbs will go out long before the fuses.

Both headlamps not working,they both came on momentarily then ceased working, I have checked both the 15 amp fuses in the engine compartment fuse box and both seem okay - any suggestions


I would check the headlight switch. It could be that you are able to turn the running lights on but the headlight position is not working. Using a test light check for power at both sides of the fuse. When using a test light do not just check all fuses as you do not want to use a test light on the air bag fuse(s). If there is no power on both sides of the fuse (and you already check that the fuse is good) then there is a problem somewhere in the electrical. If there is power at both sides, then the next area to check would be the headlight switch. If the vehicle has fog lamps, turn them on then turn the headlights on. The fog lights should come on. If not then you can almost guarantee it's in the switch as it controls both the fog lights and headlights. Pull back on your turn signal switch (or push it forward) to see if the high beems come on. If they do not but the fog lights go out, then it's highly probable that the headlight switch is bad.

1998 toyota rav 4. Right side low beam headlight doesn't work. Hi beam on that side does. Checked fuses, they appear OK, and tried 2 other headlights. Left side hi and low working fine.


sounds like there is a broken wire. the only advise i can give you is to follow the hot wire for that light untill you find the break in the wire.

Ford expedition yr'00 headlight not working checked fuses..


The low beam headlamps have a seperate fuse for each lamp in the central or underdash fuse panel.
The right headlamp is fuse fuse 26 (10amp) and the left is fuse 28 (10 amp). These fuse are hot only when headlamps are on so you need to test them with a test light with headlamps on. If they do not have power to them then concern is either headlamp switch or daytime running lamp relay if your vehicle is equipped with this feature, or a bad multifunction switch.
Power leaves the headlamp switch on the RD/YE wire and goes to multifunction switch. It leaves multifunction switch on the other RD/YE wire The wire will then go thru either a connector c2003 located behind the passenger side air bag behind the dash or to the DRL relay if your vehicle has this feature and leaves there on RD/BK wire to the headlights .
