    Problem turned out to be a pinched wire between the bulb and the fuse. Replaced the bulb (again) and fuse, and fixed wire issue. Now works great.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Problem with driver's side headlight; lowbeam works fine under daytime running. When I flip up for night time driving, the driver's side headlight goes out. Dying bulb or....?


The day time running lamps are the high beam lamps , just going through the DRL resistor . Your low beam bulb could be bad (open) . Check voltage with DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , there should be three wires at the headlamp socket , check the orange wire for battery voltage with low beams on .

Why do my headlight burns out often


My personal experience the headlights burn out frequently because it's a Hyundai. I have a 2005 Elantra (105K) and a 2007 Santa Fe (135K), and I have replaced headlights in both of those cars more than all of the 20+ other cars I have owned in my lifetime. I never touch a new bulb when replacing them, the sockets are all fine, they're just Hyundais and electric/wiring reliability is not in their capabilities. I keep a spare set of headlights in each of the cars. It's so bad that the cashier at the parts store asked me about 5 years ago if I had a Hyundai. She had the same problem with her Elantra.

Hyundai santa fe fuse headlights


You should have a 10amp headlight fuse, and two 15amp fuses - one for each side low beam. And there is a relay for each low beam plus one for the high beams. The headlight switch provides the ground circuit.
The fuses and relays are in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
Check your owners manual for details.

My passenger side low beam headlight is out. the driver side low beam headlight works fine. I replaced the bulb and the headlight still doesn't work. What should I look at next?


Check the fuse. There are seperate fuses for right and left. You dont mention if the high beam works for that side? If it does, the fuse is good. The GREEN wire at the bulb is the ground for the low beam. If that wire has power, then the ground is bad. If the high beam works, the hi'lo beam switch is good, and there is a problem between that headlight and the Engine Compartment Junction Block
