Why do all lights work except low beam driver side head lamp?


Seems like if your other low beam is lit, there's something wrong with the new bulb. Make sure it's the exact type needed, and switch the working bulb from the pass. side to drivers side to check.

What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?


If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

Prius high beam lights work but low beam lights do not work?


On a 2008 Prius, If both High beams work but only one side has working low beams, then it is most likely a fuse. So before breaking your knuckles to change the bulb, check the fuse first. I found out the hard way as my mom distressed to me that her drivers side headlights were out. So without checking to see if low and high were working, I proceeded to remove and replace the bulb - ouch! There are 4 10 amp fuses that protect the circuits for low/high beam function. They are under the hood in the fuse box on the drivers side and they are marked on the box cover. Check them before changing the bulb.

How do i replace the low beam headlamp on a 2008 mercedes?


Under the hood, there are two round head lamp covers on each side. One for high beam and one for low beams. The low beam is the outer cover. Turn this cover counter clockwise and remove. This will expose the back of the bulb. There is a small clip holding the bulb into the headlight housing, but you must unplug the light before removing clip. Once you have unplugged the light, the small metal clip can now be undone. on the side opposite the hinge, push the clip in towards the casing and then to one side (which way to push depends on which light it is.) Then the clip will release. you can now remove the bulb. place new bulb in and make sure it securely fits into position. reinstall the clip and reconnect the power. check for propeer function of the lamp before replaceing the cover. Once you confirm lamp is working replace cover and you are done.

This is easiest to see on the passanger side light. The driver side is slightly more cramped.

How do you replace a low beam headlight bulb in a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer?


Drivers side- reach hand behind headlight and remove the rubber cover, then turn and remove bulb.

Passenger side- remove air cleaner top and move the air cleaner out of the way. Now you have access to the rubber cover to replace the bulb

How do I replace the low beam bulb?


Both sides have a rubber cover behind the actually headlight. There are 2 rubber covers, one on the top for the high beams and one on the bottom for the low beams. Drivers side is easy, reach your hand down there and remove. The passenger side requires removal of the air cleaner top to have easy access. Hope this helps!

Low beam dosent work. bulb is good highbeam works cant find fuse for lights. its not underhood


Hi,
It has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.
Most like the low beam filiment is bad but the high beam filiment is still good, try replacing bulb. If replacing bulb does not fix problem then you probably have voltage problems and should check the voltage reading and the plug.
OR
isolate the wire that comes from the headlight switch to the headlamp bulbs for low beam and check to see if there is a short in the wire. You can find this wire by using a test light turn on the key and get a good ground with the test light poke the wire and see if the test light illunimates with the headlight switch on.
check the wires, and check the fuse for your lowbeams. could of blown a fuse on your lows, but your highs will still work.

The fuse box is located in the engine compartment,on the driver's side. Has thumb-screw retained cover.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

2003 Seville STS low beam headlights don't work


ya its is prolly the bulbs, open your hood. look behind your headlamps, some have covers for the low beam and high beam. if there are covers turn on your high beams so you will know which bulb is your lowbeam. if you can unplug them. after cover is removed and you can acces the bulbs. they either twist out, lefty lossey. or they have little metal retainers that you have to move a certian way before you can swing the retainer out. its like a door you just have to unhook the proper side of retainer and the other side will be hinged. use a flash light and look at it close. good luck

How to replace low beam bulb


You need to remove the back cover of the headlight inside the engine bay. There you will see both low and high beam bulbs. The low beam is the one that is to the outside crner of the vehicle, give it half a turn ad pull it right out. You do not need to remove the whole light assembly. The driver side bulb will be a little bit difficult due to space but it can be done.
