2003 Seville STS low beam headlights don't work

Both low beam headlights don't work but brights do. Have replaced 'relay' switch in fuse box under hood (engine compartment) but that didn't fix problem. Are there other fuses to be replaced or do I need to address bulbs in headlights?

    No, was advised to replace relay switch as first option. Bulbs are next. Any hints on how to do this as I have not tried to access bulb area yet?

    Thank you for the responses! One more question though...is it usual for both sides to blow out at the same time? I thought that was not likely...thus replaced the relay first. But I will definitely check the bulbs next. Thanks!

    In the end I am going to order new low beam HID lamps via internet and try those. Fuses were fine. Kid at parts store thinks the gas is going low in HID and so will try that as last resort. I did learn that the small bluish colored little round bulbs next to the 'headlights' are actually the low beam lights. They work...always have, but are so dim that there's essentially no 'dim lights' visible at night. Hence I'll try ordering replacement ones. Thank you for all of your help and suggestions. Wouldn't have know where to start without it.

Ya its is prolly the bulbs, open your hood. look behind your headlamps, some have covers for the low beam and high beam. if there are covers turn on your high beams so you will know which bulb is your lowbeam. if you can unplug them. after cover is removed and you can acces the bulbs. they either twist out, lefty lossey. or they have little metal retainers that you have to move a certian way before you can swing the retainer out. its like a door you just have to unhook the proper side of retainer and the other side will be hinged. use a flash light and look at it close. good luck

Is there any fuses or relays that are not in the fuse box on a 2002 buick rendezvousfor the bright lights


The high and low beam lights use the same power source, so if the low beams work the high beams have power.
There is a low and high beam relay controlled by the dimmer switch.
If the low beams work and the high beams don't, and the bulbs are good, check the dimmer switch and the high beam relay.

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.

Check out your fuse associate with the low beam headlight, secondly there is a relay fuse under fuse rely box under the hoos. Locate this box, and locate the relay fuse associated to the low beam. You can rotate the relay with another relay of the same spec to see if the low beam lights are coming on. I would believe that it is a fuse that is blown, check your owners manaual on the location of the fuse box. Usually it's located in the driver side kick panel.

Not completely sure your problem. Are you low beams out and your high beams still work? If so, switch relay #46 with relay #45 in the fuse box under the hood. Do your lights now come on? If so, replace the low beam relay.

My headlights only work on bright.


Make sure you don't have both fuses blown (22 and 23). Try swapping the high beam and low beam relays (usually found in the engine compartment relay box). If it changes to only low beams working, replace the relay. If not, suspect the dimmer switch.
