Did you try the relays under the hood ? if you open your relay box you will look under the lid and it tells you which relay is for the headlights

    Say by chance have you tried to change out a headlight bulb? usually if your hi beams work the low should work if the bulbs are both good ? Jerry good luck

A head gasket is a gasket that sits between the engine block and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine. Its purpose is to seal the cylinders. It will still start but it won't run that well and you will damage your engine if you run it with it blown. so check your head gasket again.

My right head light is not working.


You do not have separate fuses for each headlight. In the newer they use a relay to control the headlights. That relay could be half bad. So it needs to be completely replaced. Please rate my answer.

I have a 92 VW Golf, and I cant get the low beam headlights to come on, or the interior dash lights to come on either. The High beams will come on, and the rest of the lights work fine. Only the dash...


Sounds like you have a bad headlight switch. I would also check fuses 1&2 in the fuse box, those are for the low beam headlights, and fuse 3 is for the instrument panel lights and the license plate lights. All 3 should be 10 amp fuses.

2003 VW Golf won't start - battery was charged


You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf


There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.
