    no

    3 wires come into the harness, but they all go into a mass of wrapped wires. is there anywhere specific to check the ground?

  • baloota Jan 08, 2009

    checked the continuity of the ground into the left side wire plug appears to be good.

    headlights go off when i hit a bump, I believe it is a loose ground. How do I check to see the ground connection?

    I am totally NOT a mechanic and I have the same problem, so could you tell me where exactly the daytime running light module is located? Thanks, in advance.

Left operating headlight not working


the switch supplies power to the relays that switch on the lights according to the position you have it at
so on high beam there will be 2 high beam lights working
on low beam there will be 2 low beam lights working
back to passing lights or flashing head lights , both beams will work so the switch is the last item to consider
Now with only one side beam not working it comes back to the ground on that light for that bulb
remember that electricity follows the path of least resistance so it the ground is bad the current will ground out through another point including a light which will switch that light off or make it not work
remember the brakes light that flask when an indicator is used --same thing

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

I have a 1993 Honda Accord and the head lights won't turn on. I have changed the fuze and added new bulbs. what else can it be.


do you have low or high beams?

LOW BEAMS: When headlight switch is turned on the headlight relay is energized providing voltage through fuse 37 and 38 to the headlights and the low beams come on.

HIGH BEAMS : same thing as above thru fuses 37 & 38. When the dimmer is in high, the dimmer relay provides ground to the high beams, and the high beams come on.

1. pull your flash see if lights come on?
2. check fuse 15 if good
3. check fuses 37 & 38.

Headlight problems


Hi. That sounds like the Low/high beam switch is malfunctioning and in need of replacement. I believe this because the headlights will not come on no matter which power source is attempting to activate them. Clearly, they are not getting power. Since the high-beam indicator light is functioning and indicating HIGH BEAM it IS getting power, There is no further interruptions in that circuit, save the fuse. IF the fuse is good,.. tested good.... Then the switch is bad, if the fuse is bad... replace it. If this doesn't solve the problem You have blown all your headlights simultaneously, or lost all the connectors to the headlights all at once, or possible got so unlucky as to lose all connectivity to just the headlights magically. I'd bet the fuse if I didn't believe that you would have checked that before posting the question here, and that doesn't account for the indicator to be stuck, so.... This pretty much leaves the switch ol buddy, sorry.

Sounds like you need a bulb,the daytime running lights send power to the high beam wire so they look like low beam lights are on but really they are high beam lights running on low voltage.
