My driver side low beam is out. I replace the bulb and still not working. Everything else is working.

There are usually separate fuses for the low beam and the high beam, and for the left and right headlights (four fuses in all). This lets the power be handled appropriately for each filament instead of having the low beams on a fuse that would have to be over double the rating in order to accommodate the high beam running at the same time. That would be pretty useless for protecting the circuit.

Since you replaced the bulb and the same result came up, there are a couple of things to do:
  1. Examine the bulb that came out and see if there is actually a broken filament in it. Or two, if the low beam was out. That would let you know that the bulb was actually out, and not the rest of the circuit.
  2. Remove the bulb you just put in and make sure that the filament is intact. It shouldn't have failed just on an install. If it's burned out, then it got fried, probably almost immediately, by the circuit being engaged.
  3. Check the fuse for that circuit. The owners manual should tell you which one to look at. You can see it here ( ). go to page 5-90 (page 372 in the PDF viewer), and you'll see that the listing for the LT HI BEAM (drivers/left side high beam), and a corresponding picture on page 5-89 for where to look for it in the under-hood fuse box (on passenger side). Unfortunately, the picture is not scanned well, so you may have to either squint it out, or consult your own manual if you still have it.

If the fuse is blown, try replacing it. then put in a good bulb and try it. If it works, great, it was a blown fuse. If the bulb blows, and/or the fuse, then you have something that has compromised that circuit and is feeding/drawing too much power. At that point you'll need to do some more specific investigation, likely with an experienced mechanic.

Good Luck!

Why don't the headlights work on my 2010 Chevy Cobalt LT? The fog lights work but both high and low beams will not turn on. I have tried both Auto and Manual and it makes no difference. Help!

A rarity but sometimes both bulbs can burn out together...same sure not to touch the new bulbs as the oil from human hands severely shortens the life of the bulb...

How do I find the starter on my 2010 Chevy Traverse?

Without knowing the vehicle. It will be sited low down at the junction of the engine and the dearbox/transmission. It has to be there as it has to rotate the flywheel in order for the vehicle to start.

Headlight bulb chevy traverse life

As I also had the dealer tell me it would be $120 - $150 to change I looked into it further. If you will remove the screws from the protective cover under the fender (just a few you do not need to remove the full fender cover). You can access the bulb. You will need to turn the housing and remove the bulb. Be sure to not touch the bulb as oil from your fingers will make certain you will be changing the bulb in a short time. Also I would use the standard bulb as the brighter bulbs run hotter and burned out very fast (2-3 months). If you turn the wheel your access to the bulb is easier. It is tight but by changing the bulb yourself you are saving a lot of money.

Headlight relay traverse

My 2011 Traverse had no LOW BEAMS ( Right and Left Side )
I changed the LOW BEAM RELAY ( a 4 prong relay ) in the fuse / relay box located under the hood on the passenger side. It didn't change the situation. Voltage was good at the relay terminals and I plugged the relay into another GM car and it worked fine. The NEXT place the voltage goes to is the LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS. The easier way to change them on a 2011 Traverse is to go through each wheel well - there is an access port behind the wheel well liner. YouTube has photos and videos on how to take this apart. Don't try to attack the problem from above in the engine compartment, the wheel well is the easier ( notice I said easier not easy ) way to go about it. BOTH of my Low Beam headlamps driver side and passenger side were burned out. I just bought the vehicle ( yeah...I know...who doesn't check the lights before buying a vehicle - right ? ) and at my wits end figured that it is such a pain in the rear to change the bulbs, that the lazy bastards that owned the vehicle just drove with one headlight and THEN the second one went out. If you can hear your low beam relay clicking ( you can feel it too if someone turns the headlights on with the key in the ignition turned to ON ) and you're getting 12 volts or higher at the relay terminals in both places ( the relay coil power and relay output terminals ) then the only thing next is the bulbs themselves. Thank God for small miracles. NOBODY likes an electrical / electronics problem.

How do i charge the airconditioner

On a Traverse the low side service port can be found on the return tube between the radiator and the engine down by the compressor. It is almost directly below the high side port ( about 2' below it).
