The ground wire to that side has been comprmised. Check that ground. in some cases it is easier to replace that ground with a new one.

How do i remove the head light on a 2008 chevy Malibu


Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Changing both headlight bulbs on your Malibu at the same time will allow both bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the new headlight bulb from appearing brighter than the bulb on the opposite side. In some Chevrolets, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb (and vise versa). Some Chevrolets have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights. These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. If your Malibu has this type of bulb, we do not recommend that you attempt to change it yourself.

When you change the headlight on your Malibu, it is important to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb.

Hope this helps! :)

Rf highbeam doesnt work,after new bulb install 02 monteSS


Check for 12VDC at the connector with your high beams on. Could be the wiring or the connector and no they run on the same fuse.

Both low beam headlights are out bulbs have been recently replaced several times and driver side connection. They went out breifly a few months ago as we were driving and came back on in a few minutes


sounds like the switch assembly on the actually column ( what you use to turn the headlights on and off) may have went bad! and or the relay for the headlights. my money would be on the dimmer switch though considering the highbeam and lowbeam are 2 different circuits. thats if both the bulbs have been checked and found good as you say. good luck

How to change head light lamp on a Saturn S-Series SC2


Hello,
Purchase the replacement light you need from an auto parts store. Give them the year and particular Saturn S Series model number to acquire the right part. Also indicate whether you need the high or low beam light bulb, as some S Series models require separate bulbs.
  • Turn off the engine. Pop the hood and secure it open. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery by grasping the cable and pulling it straight off of the positive and negative battery terminals.

  • Position yourself in front of the headlight you wish to repair. Look behind the headlight assembly to find the wiring harness for the headlight assembly. Lift the locking tab, grab the wiring harness and pull the wiring directly away from the assembly.


  • Grab the old headlight bulb, twist it counterclockwise and pull it out of the headlight assembly. Replace it with a new bulb and secure it by turning it clockwise.

  • Reconnect the wiring harness to the headlight assembly and reconnect the battery cables. Test the lights to see if they work properly.

  • Thanks

    Im in the process of changing the high/low beam bulbs on my 07 GMC Sierra SLE(New Body Style) and have run into a bit of a problem...allready have changed the Drivers side but the passenger side i was able...


    it possibly would be easier to remove the airbox out the way if you remove the headlight it may possibly put it all out of allignment and then you would have to get it re aligned by the garage, so its proberbly better to remove the airbox, it normally is quite easy to replace bulbs but can be awkward hope this helps

    1998 olds intrigue drivers side signal light keeps burning


    It happened to my 98 Intrigue. It stopped as soon as I changed the sockets. It is very simple to do this, just pull it out the the plug from the connector about 4 inches from the socket. I got used ones at the junk yard, 2 bucks a piece. Been working fine for almost 2 years.
