No you don't have to worry about a fuse you just have to check the plug that plugs into the headlights if water ever got in there or anything like that they corrode and go bad or if the car was ever wrecked then it can be the wiring that runs down behind the headlight but your best and easiest bet is to check the plug or buy 2 dollars worth the dielectric grease at advance auto or auto zone and put it in the plug that should fix you up any other questions just let me know, and if you could please rate me i would greatly appreciate it...

Thanks,
Steve

What is your year--make--model? I'd look up wiring for hazards if I knew which vehicle? Your hazards may work through multifunction switch? As far as one headlamp being dimmer, check voltage and ground compare to other lamp/s.

Maybe the headlamp lens needs cleaning?

2001 grand caravan low beam light not working. i chang bulb already i check fuse already.


Hi Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, 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.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Headlight not working, changed bulb and fuse...


First check electrical connection, if its got voltage at the connector when headlight switch is on , then if it does you have a defective headlight bulb, you can switch the bulb from the other side that you know is good. and if it doesnt light up on one side and does on the other, you have a electrical prob.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

My low beams keep shutting on and off but high beams are fine


this could be solved by taking the bulb out of its holder and cleaning the contact of the bulb and holder.
turn the ignition on after this with the bulbs in the holder and plugged in but not in the headlight kitself.Turn the lights on and see if the work if still the same try moving the bulb while on in its older and see if its just loose. if so holding it one way it will work. wedge something something to hold it in place or buy a used bulb holder.
Check the fuses at the same time and the wire plug that powers the bulb. check and clean the contacts of these also
Let me know how it goes and ill help again if it persists.

2005 pontiac sunfire headlight issue


I have run into a few of these and what I found was water getting into the wires that go to these headlights.The harness is just below the battery area.It will be easier to get to from the bottom of the vehicle.You will have to remove the plastic cover from the harness and the electrical tape.Find the dark blue and the orange wires.The dark blue is for the drivers side and the orange is for the passengers side.There should be 2 of each.Look real closely and see if you see a spot where the wires are slightly swelled up.These wires are only 18 gauge so it is not easy finding the bad spot.One thing you can try is pulling on the wires a little and sometimes they will separate where the bad spot is.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Instrument panel lights fail to come on when headlights switched on. Any clues? Fuse is OK, dimmer switch connections seem OK.


there may be a connector block vibrated off behind the panel or something could have blown bulbs but not fuse.
