Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

How do I diagnose why one of my headlights will not work?

I am at a standstill... My drivers side headlight will not work, and i am not sure how to diagnose and fix it. PLEASE HELP! When the headlight went out, I changed both bulbs, and the passangers side headlight went out 6 days later. I changed that (yes, the correct bulb, H7) then 2 days later the drivers side went out again! I changed that, and it blew 2 seconds later. All fuses are good, and I get 12volts going to the drivers side light. I am so confussed. What do I need to do?

The h 7 bulb is a quartz halogen bulb and if touched with the bare fingers has an extremely short life
you have to use gloves when handling the bulbs as the oil from the fingers reacts with the glass when in use and blows the bulbs
they will also blow from bad/ loose ground points and if allowed to arc ( as in welding ) will fail quickly
you should get 12 volts to both bulbs at one terminal while the other is the grounding wire
check for problem relays in the power wire

SOURCE: 2003 tiburon keeps blown headlight fuse the second you put it in

Unplug the drivers side headlamp. Install a fuse and see if it blows. If it doesn't replace the headlamp. If it does you will need to start tearing into the harness to find the shorted wire. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 2004 chevy imapala, the headlight on the drivers side will not work, we switched the headlight with the passenger headlight and it works fine and the passenger did the same thing on the drivers...


If the good bulb worked on both sides and the bad bulb did not work on either side [I think this what you said] then the bulb is burnt out.
Just to be sure see if the supposed defective bulb works on High beam.

I have a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder the passenger side headlight will not come on but there is power and if I plug the bulb into the drivers side it lights. I have checked the fuses under the hood and they are...


if it's like a Quest, the relay on the passenger fender controls the left headlight and vice versa.

Could also be the headlight switch, I have seen that too.

The switch to the head light is shorting out and taking out the head lights. The other problem could be the body control module is shorting out .
I would replace the head light switch first. Then if that does not work take to a shop to diagnose the vehicle.

Volvo S40 Low beam headlight


Sounds like a wire to me. It's definitely not fuses (unless the fuses have been split for left and right hand side which I have never come across, but we are talking about volvo lol) so I'd say most likely there'd be a break somewhere in the harness. The driver's side probably blew as all the power gets sent to one side when one bulb isn't working - so it's working twice as hard usually - making it more susceptable to blowing.
