My wife owns a 2001 beetle so the vehicles should be identical. So, in the driver side when you open the door and remove the fuse panel, the low beam fuses are the two blue 15 amps in the very upper right hand corner (not side by side, up and down) however, on the new beetles the headlights are individually fused, so if both the headlights went out at once it could be the switch rather than the fuse, moreover, it could also be the bulbs themselves, which is somewhat difficult, but possible, to do yourself. If it is the bulbs, post again and I can walk you through it. If not, try calling a VW service department, hopfully you can get a tech that will talk to you and is not afraid about giving you information instead of telling you 'you have to bring it in for me to diagnose the problem' (with one hand in your wallet). I hope I helped. Please let me know haw things go.

Toyota camry 2002 fuse box diagram


It is very common for both headlights to be bad, as we use our low beams a lot more than high beams. I would first suggest replacing the headlight bulb. The low beam filaments could be bad and the high beams be ok. If this doesn't help feel free to let me know and I will be happy to look a little deeper for you.

Fuse diagram


Could be the turn signal switch.
There should be a fuse for the turn signals and one for the headlights.
They are different circuits.

I have a problem with the high beams only working and the low beams not working is there a fuse that i can replace to make the low beams work


You didn't mention the year and model but if you have the owner's manual it will have a fuse box diagram and tell you if a separate fuse is used for the low beams. Normally though one fuse takes care of all head lights. You may have a bad dimmer switch that will need to be replaced. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Hi: I have a 01 Camry with low milage the right high beam lamp has no power to the bulb. The harness is like new and all the under hood fuses seem in good condition. I first thought the problem was ths...


If you have daytime running lights, you're going to have to check all the relays. There are also 4 fuses for this design. 2 20 amp for high beams and 2 10 amp for low beams.
The non-DRL version is simpler, but it isn't clear to me that is what you have. That design runs both the high and low beams off 2 20 amp fuses. If you missed the one for the right bulb, maybe that's all you need to fix--it also runs the high beam indicator. This stuff may be in the cabin fuse box. If not, check the one in the engine compartment. I will paste the diagrams below, but the res may not be good.

2002 lancer when headlights on high beam they dim they work fine on low beams but once you turn to high beam the power goes in half very dim


The quckest way to fix this is to fit a relay to your high beam light circuit. This will feed power directly to your high beams and cut out the high resistance of switch and wiring.

Headlights wont work


Fuse 22 and fuse 23 are left and right low beam headlamp fuses located in the PDC. 23 and 24 are high beam fuses. There is also a low beam and a high beam relay in PDC as well. If no headlights work I would check for main switch or multifuction switch (wiper/high beam) since each light has its own fuse and relay.

Headlights


low beam bulb is burned out in each case and you take the headlight out and replace the bulb. it takes about 15 minutes if you have done them before. there is a small leve to get the light out.it turns as you pull the light out .
