Headlight wont work, doesn't seem to be the bulb

My Driver's side headlight went out today. the bright lights and emergency lights work, just the headlight. i have checked the bulb, seperated from connector. the connector seems to have a corrouded look, where the tongs of the bulb would go in. Would a multi functional switch / dimmer switch do the trick?

No it will not
it sounds like the bulb is bad
clean the corrosion with a small wire brush
and try a new bulb

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

Headlight fault


You may have blown a fuse, check fuses first then before you try to replace the bulb again check for broken wires or the correct bulb

Why dont you start by checking the fuses for headlights refer to your owners manual for the location of the fuse box for your car. if the fuses are good then replacing headlight bulbs to both headlight assembly is your next step.If after replacing both headlight bulb you still have the same problem then you might have other electrical issues.

Drivers side head light is way dimmer than passenager light even after new bulb replacement


When looking from the outside of the headlight at the bulb, can you see the bulb clearly??
These lenses are notorious for dulling very badly. If it has you can use a regular headlight 'restoring' kit sold at most auto part locations.

If it is not a lens issue, you may have a wiring/supply issue.
Then you would need to find the troublesome wire/connection.
I am not the best at wiring issues, but I would try to find a power source wire with the same amperage rating, run a bypass jumper from a known good voltage source and see if the light changes. If no change, your problem may be the harness or plug at the rear of the headlight bulb.
Hope I could help

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the passenger side head lamp will not come on. The fog lights and driver side head lamp works but the passenger side will not work on bright or on dim, what could this be?


Hi. Since the headlight on the driver side is working then we dont have any problem with the fuse or relay. Check the wiring and the socket of the passenger headlight if it is intact to the bulb. If it is intact, then this could be a headlight problem. Time to replace the passenger headlight.
