When you replaced bulb,all wiring and bulb connector looked good,no corrusion,wires not burned or strayed.With dim lights,means just a little power going to light bulb.Did you check the fuse in fuse box,could be a loose connectoion,check both fuses,left and right headlight.swap them out and see,if fuses are good then,it may be the headlight switch,which cost the most.Here's a link on how to replace.Here's the part.

SOURCE: how to replace headlight bulbs 1999 chevy malibu

Thanks Pierre!

Merci beaucoup!

Everything worked as mentionned. Be carefull with the plastic in the winter. Make sure to use a flat screw driver and get it close to the slider and not on the edge. I cracked one of the tongues. Those L shaped slots are under the plastic cover with the two big plastic plugs that you also remove with the flat screw driver

SOURCE: head light bulb replacement 2003 chevy trailblazer

Simple! (I have the same model as well) Pop off the front chevy grill - it's held on with spring clips. Then look at the headlight assembly - there are 2 slide clips on either side, near the top - they have a tab that is bent forward - lift them UP. It may take a little force as they are usually stiff. The headlight assembly can then be pulled off the car, and the bulbs replaced.

SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

SOURCE: the headlights stopped working on 2005 chevy

Check power at both headlights. Often one goes out and you don't notice till the other goes out. if both have power change the bulbs...if not check the switch and fuses as well as the dimmer switch.

How do i fix a lope in my 1998 chevy malibu


Vaccum test the machine,this will narrow down the problems source....Idle air control(IAC) can and does malfunction without setting fault codes....Hence the old tried and true method of vaccum testing,also a fuel pressure test wouldn't hurt.....You can purchase all these tools from ebay for less than 100.00.....Well worth the initial investment...

My 1998 chevy malibu wont start after overheating with smoke why


If the engine was overheated, you most likely have a cracked cylinder head and/or a blown head gasket. The reason it won't start is because there is angine coolant getting in the combution chambers. (You cannot run the engine on antifreeze)

It does not have a fuse for the head lights,either the head light switch is bad,or the head light relay,or the bulbs have burned out,check the voltage at the head lamps.

Head light is real dim


Likely you have a bad ground at the bulb socket! You can either clean it, add another ground wire, or both! Don't ground a power lead... Identify both running power and hi-beam power before making ground! You can use a test light to do this!
