The map light should come off if you push up and back on it just grip the edges of the light cover and push gently up and back. it should pop right off and then you can replace the small bulb

What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?


If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

2011 Legacy with front light issues


Interesting question. Bulbs do burn out, but premature failure is often caused by overvoltage from the alternator. Have your dealer check the alternator for correct voltage AND waveforms. You can check it yourself with a multimeter. If the battery voltage is more than about 14.5Vdc, eg 15+, the alternator has to be replaced.

The turning signal sound is fast on passenger


It is a burned out bulb on the passenger side - turn on the left signal so you will know where to look for the bulb. Then turn on the right side and find the blown out bulb and replace it.

I have a 99 For Explorer. The brake light passenger side doesnt work. Same bulb runs the tail light and turn signal, they work. Replace bulb? Or is it electrical?


I would try replacing the bulb first. That bulb actually has 2 different filaments inside it. One of them may be burned out.

Head lamp keeps burning out. replaced head lamp at


You either have a bad ground or the bad electrical connection at the light socket is "simulating" a bad ground. This is putting a high resistance on the bulb and it's taking it's toll by burning out the bulb. I would start with a new socket, and CHECK the ground. If you still have the issue, I would run another complete ground wire and not even worry about checking the ground itself. the Stick

Passenger Taillight always burning out


I own a 97 LS as well and I was going through passenger taillight bulbs too. I found that the water that drained in the channel around the trunk was deteriorating the connectors on the taillight. I replaced the circuit board (black plastic piece you plug the lights into) and also used a can of Electical Connector Cleaner on both the plug to the circuit board and the socket the lights plug into. Lights have lasted now 5 months without burning out.

Replacement rear brake bulb


He probably bought the wrong bulb. Look in the manual. They list the correct bulb numbers, so check that. It could also be that your mirror bulb decided to burn out at the same time. Also, check the fuses, see if one burned out. Look in your owner's manual to find the fuses and the right one.
