2000 grand prix headlights not switching to bright

The driver side fog lamp got hot and melted the housing, broke the bulb. Now the headlights will not switch to bright but work on dim. The dash light will show bright lights are on as long as the switch is being pulled in. As soon as it is released the indicator for brights goes off. The fuses and Circuit breaker indicate good.

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.

My headlights on bright and fog light is not working. I have changed the bulbs and they still don't work. The fuses seem to look okay. What else should I look for? Do they have another fuse or circut fuse...


Most fog lights turn off when you put your brights on. Check their operation in normal mode first, if they turn off when you turn your brights on... this is normal.

To disable this you need the wiring diagram for your car, you will have to cut 1 wire to be able to have all your lights on at the same time.

Only brights work, dimly lit headlamps, no fog lamps


Recheck the bulb number. This happens when the wrong bulb number is installed. Otherwise it could be a bad headlight ground.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix fog lamps do not work


I had the same problem. My mechanic checked it for me. He found that the wiring connection on the back of the switch had worked itself off over time. He connected the wiring and it works perfectly.
