Have a look at this page.... if a dealer told me they wanted a 1000 dollars for a part other then laughing at them.... i'd go somewhere else. alot of times you can get good parts that are inexpensive at a junk/recycling/wrecking yard and i'm not sure why more people don't use that resource. be that as it may check out this page

Have a 2004 vw new beetle 1.8 liter engine with a 20-v turbo charger. driver's side headlight not burning the day we picked up this car from used dealer. returned to dealer following day. they sent it


there should be h 4 halogen bulbs in the car that do not require a ballast
ballasts are an after market fittment to run LED lights
if there is no requirement for the ballast then yes warranty is void
I suggest that you take it to an accredited auto electrician and discuss the problem as to why it would have a ballast and the potential wiring problems that could result

Cadillac cts ballast


If the bulb has a black plastic base it is a halogen bulb and has no ballast. If it has a metal base it is an HID bulb and the ballast is inside the metal base. The HID bulb looks like this:

Headlights stay on when 2005 gmc envoy xl is off


Hello David..some GM vehicles have a feature called Twilight Sentinel which provides a couple of minutes of "headlight on" time after turning the vehicle off. (Check your owners manual for this features operating instructions.)

If your headlights never turn off, the failure is most likely in the headlight switch as headlights are wired hot...meaning you can turn them on without the key in ignition.

1999 GMC Jimmy Envoy driver's side Low Beam won't work, will a replacement Headlight assembly w/bulbs work?


I'm not a salvage yard type guy--- but I sure wouldn't buy
much for a 1999 Jimmy

I have had a 1984 S10 Blazer for 28 years

I would get whatever you need at the yard,not new for those
prices

1999 Jimmy with Envoy package. Driver side low beam is burned out. Replacement from GM is $1200.00. Can I use an after market system? If so, how do I locate and remove existing HID ballast?


1999 GMC Envoy w/ same problem - we removed the bumper then had easy access to the ballast (two bolts on top and one on the bottom if I remember correctly). For the bumper, there are two bolts visible on top, then two a bit lower just inside. Remove the 4 bolts then you pull the bumper forward to unlatch and remove it. When you put the bumper back on, insert the lower bolts first - otherwise it\'s a pain to get them back in correctly. For a temp fix we removed the ignigtor/bulb and ballast, took the wires going into the ballast (regular bulb wires) and connected a 9006 bulb. We removed the retainer from the ignigtor to hold the new bulb into place, it took some adjusting to get it set in place but it worked nicely. We will be putting new/aftermarket headlight assemblies in soon, but this fix only cost $25; it was a quick solution that took about 2 hours.

How to replace the headlights on my 2003 GMC envoy.


The headlights on the envoy are the easiest parts of the car to repair. You just pull the two tabs at the top of the headlights, screw out the bulb containers and you are good to go
