This looks like a poor contact in the socket of the one "that worked before something happened". It may not be enough of a break to be seen easily so I suggest you simply replace it. If that is not possible try flexing the areas of the wires and the socket to see if you get intermittent contact.

SOURCE: Tail lights and dash lights not working, due to headlight install

I have the same problem in an 88 Accord. I found that if I slowly turn the light switch, there is a sweet spot in between the the parking light and headlight on position (around halfway in between or so.) where all will work. The problem is , when I might a right turn signal, it turns the dash and brake lights out again and I have to refind that sweet spot. Not very safe, so we don't drive that car at night.
I was told by a mechanic that the issue is a relay or switching mechanism located in the steering column.

I put new HID headlight conversion kit in my 97 mark viii.y does my information center still read check headlamps?


computer is programed to monitor headlight circuit for a specific voltage , if that voltage is not being supplied , either over drawing or under drawing the information center message gets triggered. It thinks the bulb is burned out or something is wrong. Apparently the HID's are drawing more juice than the computer is used to seeing ,and it is triggering the message. The manufacturer of the hid kit should have warned you that this can happen,in it's description before you bought the kit.

Hid headlights


( please add year and model type) you just need to change the module for the hids usually fitted to the light housing. they dont cost alot to replace. but converting back to normal lights you will need the the light bulb housing. these can be hard to find. as they just get chucked away. you can get hid kit if you want to change both lights they come with a manual on how to install them.

How do i wire up hid headlights on 2005 mazda 3


To wire up an HID kit on the low beams of your Mazda 3 2005, you will need 3-4 things:
1- HID kit (bulbs and ballasts)
2- HID relay (connects your hid kit to your battery)
3- 4700uF capacitor (solves DRL flickering issue)
4- H7 hid bulb adaptor (you can also use the rubber piece that holds the bulb wires as a spacer)


Wiring diagram:
http://www.carsets.co.uk/upload/temp/images/hid-light-installation-photo-display.jpg

Tips on How to wire up:
1. HID bulb's amp wires connects with the ballast's amp wires. (There's only one way to connect them.)
2. The positive and the negative spade connectors from the hid relay connect with your vehicle's low beam connector, closest to your battery: the driver side. The passenger side low beam connector is not used and should be insulated. You can use electric tape.)
3. Each ballast is connected to one of the relay's clip connector, and it's grounded on each side to your vehicle's body. (One connector for each ballast, one for each side. You can use the screw for the body as a ground.)
4. The red wire(with the inline fuse) in the relay connects to your battery's positive terminal.
5. The capacitor sits on the relay switch. (Google for how to wire the capacitor onto the hid relay switch.) dynoxg image
6. The halogen bulb sits on an adapter. You can safely remove them from each other, and use an H7 hid adapter instead.

I have a 2004 Nissan Maxima with hid headlights an the bulb is blown an i have replaced the bulb an it still doesn't work, i checked the fuse box inside an outside, is their any other fuses i can...


It sounds like you have wire problem. This problem can be manny problems from a short due to exposed wire or it is broken somewhere... ect. if it is not the wire check further back the line to see if the buse is recieving power. Or it could be as simple as the plug you put the bulb in has a broken contact tip

Hid light not turning on


the part about the lights that won't turn on may be because there is a blown fuse or a broken relay which needs to be changed, the part about the hid lights there may be a short circuit somewhere.

Hid's not working


Check the wiring inside the headlight assy. I had a bad wire in a unit I installed. Once I tracked it down and repaired the wire all was fine.
