Question about 1990 Suzuki Swift

Open Question

Headlights not working and highbeam indicator always lit

I have a 1990 Suzuki Swift. Recently the driverside headlight burned out, so I had it replaced (not the first time doing this). Within 24 hours both of my headlights stopped working and the highbeam indicator on my dash is constantly illuminated. All other interior and exterior lights are functional. When I checked the bulbs, the one that was replaced looks fine, but the passenger bulb looks like it is full of foam/cotton. Have checked the headlight fuses inside the car and both look fine, have replaced the passenger headlight with a new bulb with no change. Have also removed the bulb from the driverside and no change either. Am at a loss as to what could be causing the problem, and don't really want to take it to a garage if it is something simple and can be fixed by myself.

Have you checked to see if this is a wiring problem or maybe a relay problem?

Recently my lights would work on side lights and not anything else and this was down to dodgy wiring and needed a new relay unit.

SOURCE: How do I change my front headlight bulb?

At the rear of the headlight under the hood, you will see the nylon bulb holder. Squeeze the tab to unlock it, and turn it counterclock wise. Pull it out, and, with out touching the bulb with naked fingers, pull the old bulb out, and put the new one in. The natural oil on your fingers, the stuff that makes finger prints, will cause the bulb to fail prematurely, so, use a paper towel or gloves to handle the new bulb.

If you are talking about the brake fluid reservoir, you need to use brake fluid. Not oil.

Assembly removal is easy. In fact, because of the problem you encountered--getting that stupid retention spring off, I recommend removal of the entire housing. The two 10mm bolts on top of the headlight housing are the most obvious, but not so is the 10mm retaining nut near the bottom rear of the assembly. If it is the driver's side, you can remove the windshield washer fill tube to gain easier assess to the nut, or just work around it, up to you. The passenger side is a bit harder....you actually need to remove the air filter housing to gain access to the nut. Remove the air filter to see the bolts--remove and pull housing out. Hope this answers your question.

M i have a 95 suzuki swift the headlights went dim on driverside, now only high beams work and is dimm on driverside, low beams wont come on any ideas


I believe that the make and model of car you have uses a two in one head lamp bulb. I also believe that you are most likely looking at a bad light bulb. Simply go to your local auto part store, give them the year, make, and model of your car and they will give you a new bulb. Some auto part stores will even install the bulb for you free of charge. I hope this helps you. If you have any more problems please feel free to ask.

Low beam does not light up


If your highbeams work theres a strong possibility that BOTH your headlight bulbs the low beam filament is burned out, if the highbeams dont work either check all related wiring and fuses for the headlights also the headlight switch on your steering column....

Headlight high beam fault


check the wirings for loose connection. Isolate and check on the wrongly switched bulb. Check also the grounding connection near the bulbs. If it has been tampered already, you need to trace the wirings either with a tester or test lamp. goodluck!

do you have the right light bulb? i own a 98 sentre and
it takes a 9004 bulb, but walmarts computer said to use 9007. That made the high beam censor stay on till i replaced it. if you look at the bulb you can tell if it is a dual or single beam bulb.!!!!
