    The low beams consist of three parts. The bulb, inverter/ballast and
    the ignitor. The bulbs usually start to loose their color long before they burn out.
    The inverters/ballasts either go out after a while or take a while to
    start up.



    Before you spend money on a new bulb, try swapping it with the one on
    the other side. You'll need a security torx screwdriver to get the
    covers off of the back of the lights. Don't touch the glass bulbs. If you do, just clean them with a bit of alcohol.

    If the problem stays on that
    side, try swapping the ignitors. They're mounted inside the black
    covers.


    If the problem is still on that side you've got a bad inverter. They're mounted on the bottom of the headlight assembly. You'll need to remove the front bumper and remove the headlight assembly to get to it. (I recommend you take pictures as you remove things so can put them back together correctly.)

You really don't have to de energize the bulb. Just make sure the lights are in the off position. It uses a D2R 35W HID Capsule bulb part number D2R in Osram/Sylvania. Just remember not to touch the glass on the new bulb while installing it.

No lowbeam headlights...bulbs have been replaced but still no lowbeam


The 2003 Trailblazer has separate fuses for each headlight. Check the fusebox under the hood near the battery. A complete diagram showing you where the low beam fuses are can be found in your vehicle owner's manual.

How do you change a headlight bulb on a 2003 Toyota Celica GT? Under the plastic covering the headlight there is a lot of fog and condensation and I want to clean it off, so how do I take off the plastic that covers the headlight?
  • 9 months ago
Seem to be seal is wear off
already on the front cover
The way to open that
1. There is four screws at the back of
the headlights and unscrew them
2. Pull the headlight and dry it
by wiping or heat of the sun or
anything that can release the fog
3. Buy silicon and seal the headlight
gap with silicon and let it dry for a hour
This will help kept away fog
and condensation for sure
