I'm not a salvage yard type guy--- but I sure wouldn't buy
much for a 1999 Jimmy

I have had a 1984 S10 Blazer for 28 years

I would get whatever you need at the yard,not new for those
prices

    I think we are going to install a 9006 bulb from the ballast and see if that works - if so, we'll only spend $20

    Sounds like a game plan-- if it works

    We had to take the bumper off to remove the ballast, and after some rewiring the 9006 bulb works great. We are now thinking of doing it to the other side so we can sell the extra ignigtor and ballast! :)

    Posting incase someone else has this problem. *It's not necessary to remove the ballast from under the bumper, but it's not needed if you're going to bypass it with wiring. You can remove the weather stripping from the headlight and open it to remove the focusing assembly to make the 9006 bulb shine bright - like new. We left ours in for now, but the light isn't that bright - so it may be our next job.

What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?


If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

Headlight Replacement (Envoy)

Lift hood, at top of each headlight assembly look for two L-shaped tabs. Pull these tabs straight up, this will release the headlight assembly. Lift assembly forward to gain access to rear of assembly. There two rubber caps, the top one is for access to the low beam and the bottom for the high beam bulbs. Remove the appropriate cap, grasp bulb socket and turn CCW to release. Unplug bulb from socket by releasing catch on side of socket, install new bulb, DO NOT touch bulb glass with fingers. Reverse steps to re-assemble.

2003 GMC Envoy low beam head lights will not come on. The bulbs are not blown, fuse's ok, no power coming to the head light connector. minimal power to the fuse compartment with fuse removed. 9 to 10...


The problem is a Headlight module. Fuse box under the hood has two black modules side by side, the one on your right is the headlight module the one on the left is the fan module. Try swapping them, if the headlights work replace bad module, don't drive vehicle with the bad module in the fan slot. Mine kept going bad because I had a high intensity bulb on one side.

Replacing the low beam headlight on a 2004 gmc envoy


Just above the headlight assembly are two angled tabs, pull these straight up (they may need some effort). These will release the assembly, carefully pull the entire assembly forward. Access to the headlight bulb is behind the two rubber caps, the upper cap is for the low beam. Remove this cap, twist the headlight bulb socket CCW and remove. Disconnect bulb from harness by prying up gently on locking tab on socket, and pull bulb out. Being careful not to touch the new bulb glass surface with your finger, plug it into the socket and install it back into the headlight assembly turning it CW. Reinstall rubber cap, seat headlight assembly on frame, lining up the bottom and top pegs. Once the assembly is fully seated, push the two angled tabs down, locking the assembly in place.

1999 Jimmy with Envoy package. Driver side low beam is burned out. Replacement from GM is $1200.00. Can I use an after market system? If so, how do I locate and remove existing HID ballast?


1999 GMC Envoy w/ same problem - we removed the bumper then had easy access to the ballast (two bolts on top and one on the bottom if I remember correctly). For the bumper, there are two bolts visible on top, then two a bit lower just inside. Remove the 4 bolts then you pull the bumper forward to unlatch and remove it. When you put the bumper back on, insert the lower bolts first - otherwise it\'s a pain to get them back in correctly. For a temp fix we removed the ignigtor/bulb and ballast, took the wires going into the ballast (regular bulb wires) and connected a 9006 bulb. We removed the retainer from the ignigtor to hold the new bulb into place, it took some adjusting to get it set in place but it worked nicely. We will be putting new/aftermarket headlight assemblies in soon, but this fix only cost $25; it was a quick solution that took about 2 hours.

Unplug old bulb and install new, DO NOT touch bulb glass. Re-assemble in reverse order.
