    did you test the voltage at the socket... as it burnt it may have blown the fuse or the relay.

Obviously you have problem with wiring. if driverside works check withh a test light for power and ground. connect ur light to battery and test.if yuo have problem use the wiring from driverside to repair.

    you have 3 wires to the socket. one 12V high beam. one 12 V low beam. and one common ground. if you have no 12V on low beam chek fuse and relay.

How do I replace burnt bulb (brake light) on my 2003 Nissan Altima


Open the back hatch door. There are two hex head bolts that hold the tail light assembly in place. Remove them. The fender side of the taillight is snapped on. With a little hand force (don't use a screwdriver, it may crack the light or scratch the paint) you should be able to pop the light assembly out.
The back of the assembly has sockets that hold the bulbs, in small print you should see the word "lock" and a direction arrow. Simply turn the socket in the opposite direction and the buld should pull out. When replacing it, make sure you don't hand the buld directly with your hands because oils from you fingers may shorten the life of the bulb.

How do I change the passenger side headlight bulb on 2001 Altima


Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

2004 Nissan Altima passenger side low beam


Hi,
Just a thought... If with the bulb not burning, you can verify that the voltage supply wire is "hot" and you know the bulb is good, you probably just have a grounding issue. If you can check the ground wire against the hot wire and get voltage, I'd suspect the problem is in the bulb socket or socket connection.
I bet you can figure it out... :o)
Hope this helps... I hate paying big bucks for dealership repairs too. Good luck!

Passenger side head light


glad you asked , its like a saftey pin , you push in on the lower side of that paper clip looking device , as you push in , move it side ways to the left or the right , depending on how your looking at it , its real dumb , just like a saftey pin . by the way there is a recall on the 2002 , 2003 altima headlights , if you see burnt connectors , or crumbly plastic were the actual bulb inserts into the light assembly , take it to nissan , under the headlight campaign , more often they will replace both headlight assemblies , all nice and new and clear . 2 thumbs up !

No low beam head lights


If you just want to replace the bulb yourself, this is a good website.
http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Nissan-Altima-Headlight-Bulb/Nissan-Altima-Passenger-Side-Headlight.htm
If the website does't get your headlight fixed... You might have a blown fuse. It could be in the IPDM E/R location under the hood. This is next to the coolant bottle. Remove the coolant bottle with two screws and lift the cover to the IPDM E/R. Just set the coolant bottle aside for now. The low beam fuses are 49 and 50. They are 15A fuses. To be more precise, they are located on row 2, columns 2 and 3 (column 1 being closest to the fender of the car). Hope this helps.
