Headlight low beams (both sides) suddenly stopped working. High beams and all other lights fine, fuses fine. 12v present at low beam fuse when switched on.


How do two bulbs burn out at the same time? - makes no sense! If sure that the fuse is definitely good, then check out the power switch and/or relay that feeds the low beams - it could be bogus.

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

2001 Cavalier High beams work,low beams don't


probably best to work backwards:
the fuse itself will be fine if the lights come on at all, so at least at that point it should be fine.
first you'll want to check with a known good bulb (or put bulbs in another car [if available] to verify they are fine) to make sure you don't just have 2 burnt out low beams (high and low beams are separate filaments)

if the known good bulb still doesn't work (but normal high beams and DRL do) check the contact points where the bulb gets plugged in for any corrosion, then onto the wiring itself, feel the wires for any signs of damage; extra stiffness, very darkened areas, or very sharp bends/kinks (as much as you can reach)

Audi A4 2002 Low beams & Right front turn signal stopped working


For Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
First fuse on first row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.20 = F20 (15A) - RH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.
First fuse on second row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.21 = F21 (15A) - LH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.

No low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good


There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

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

Right headlamp doesn't work on low beam only


in this case make sure you have voltage going to the low beam lights. 12 volts. you need a volt meter. if you do not have volatge you have to check and make sure power is going through the fuse. a bad fuse will be broke, but you can have a good fuse with no power going through it. if you have power going through the fuse you have a wiring open somewhere between fuse and whatever is between the headlight connecter.

plz check and get back i will keep checking on here on and off.
