SOURCE: 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

A possable culprit may be your High / Low or dimmer switch. All the power to your lights are controled through that switch.

    I have no low beam headlights. already checked bulbs, fuses, relay and dimmer switch. can you help?

    Before you replace the #46 HDM relay (in the fuse block under the hood) try exchanging it with the #45 cooling fan relay and see if your low beam lights work. If they do, the HDM relay (actually solid state module, not a relay) is bad.

    I wouldn't hesitate to replace the HDM module. Which is a fancy word for the headlamp relay. It is in the fuse block under the hood and on the passenger side. It will be labeled HDM module I have had these do some crazy things, I've replaced enough of them that any time there is a crazy complaint involving the headlights it's the first thing I replace.

    Your question simply said headlight problems. So I am going to assume, since it is a 2004 model, that your low beam headlights quit working. If that is the case, here is a possible solution. In the fuse box under the hood,, you will find what looks like a relay. It will be marked HDM #46. Swap HDM #46 with HDM#45 and see if the low beams come on. If they do come on, you need to replace HDM#46 with a new one, which you will probably have to get from the dealership. Be sure to swap the two back in to their original positons because HDM#45 controls the cooling fan.

    2007 Buick Lacrosse low beam headlights both went out at once. Doesn't appear to be the bulb. Also checked the fuses under the hood and those both appear OK too.

    The relay under the hood may have gone out. We had the same problem on our 2007 Buick LaCrosse CX. The bulbs were fine, high beams worked, all turn signals and everything except the low beams turned on. Turns out the relay had gone bad.

    Try temporarily swapping #45 Cooling Fan relay and and #46 HDM relay in the under-hood fuse block, and see if the low beams come on.

    The one originally in the HDM #46 socket is bad. That relay is actually is a solid state module, not a conventional relay, and will cost you anywhere from $25-45 at the dealer.

    HDM = Headlight Driver Module

    Also known as a solid-state relay, since instead of relay contacts and a coil, it uses a power switching transistor capable of running the headlights (and the fan clutch in #45) at less than 100% power, to provide daytime running lights, and control the fan clutch engagement for the engine cooling fan.

    Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

    2006 grand prix low beam headlight do not work, high beams work fine?

    I'm having the same issue. I have changed the bulbs and fuses. I can't find a relay but I don't think that is the issue. Some other people have suggest the Dimmer Control Switch. I am working on that. Please let me know what you find out.
