SOURCE: headlights

Pull the headlight switch and check for a burned connector, this will cause a poor connection and in turn dim headlights or no lights.

SOURCE: low beam headlights not working on 2004 Pontiac Montana extended

You headlight lamp have a diffuser mechanism which allows it to flip between the hight beam and low beam feature of the bulb. In fact, you high beam will function even if the low beam is not working.

I would recommend the purchase of the new headlight lamp. It would cost you you any where from $15.00 per unit to get a replacement lamp

SOURCE: Low beam headlights do not

most cars have a fuse or relay for high and low. if they are good test your bulbs then check or replace your dimmer which is in the multifunction switch

It could be driving lights mode instead of low beam. Check connections.

Replaced battery in crv and now headlights don't work


Check the low beam fuse in the fuse box, usually a 20A. If the fuse is blown/shorted during the replacement of the battery, your lights won't work. Replace the fuse if that's your case. Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 Ford Explorer Limited and the high beams work but the low beams and fog lights do not, please help....


These trucks are known for bad multifuction switches.
the switch that i talk of is the signal switch , the handle is the switch, it bolts to side of steering column . this switch controls the signals and the headlights and high /low beams. the other thing is the headlight switch connector, the connector some times goes bad and starts to melt or just comes out of the connector. you will need to remove the cover to steering column, the screws are located under the bottom cover in holes. remove cover and check connector and then test for power if you have power going into switch but not coming out then switch is bad.

the last thing is to make sure the bulbs are good , make sure the headlight bulbs are good , and also the driving light bulbs, test for power at the connectors to those lights to.
You will need to do a little testing to find the problem.

Low beam headlight drivers side don`t work. high beam it works.


Check tour bulbs first and replace if blown. If OK then check wiring backwards from light to dip switch.

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work


Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

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.

Hello, I have a headlight problem on a 2004 chey calvalier. All of my lights work except low beam on drivers side. Fuses on left and right headlights are good. I've switched bulbs as well and nothing...


I would focus on the connections going to that head light for the low beam. I agree, it is not the switch, otherwise other side low beam would not be working. It is most likely bad bulb inlet( if it i separated bulbs for high and low) or it is the connection going to the low beam that operates it. Hope this helps. Don't waste your time on switch, it is not that.

High beams work low beams do not


you don`t say if you have checked the fuses for the headlights.if the fuses are okay and you know that the low beam filaments are working.you may have to feed power and ground directly to the proper headlight prongs from the battery to make sure the bulbs are good.then it could be a relay for the low beams or a switch for the headlights.you don`t say if you have daytime running lights on this car as there is a module for this system that may be the problem for the now low beams.
