Question about 2009 Nissan Versa

Open Question

I have a 2009 Nissan Versa, and last night the low beam headlights stopped working. When I turn on the headlights, the rear lights come on, but neither the low beams or the parking lights will come on. The high beams, however, work fine. I know it is highly unlikely that it is the bulbs, because the headlights were recently replaced (and I would be really surprised if both low beam bulbs AND both parking light bulbs went out simultaneously). I am guessing that the problem is either a fuse, a relay, or the switch, but I do not know which fuses or relays would be connected to the low beams and parking lights. Does anyone know which fuses/relays I should be checking? Thanks! P.S. - This is a 2009 Nissan Versa, base model, with no DTRLs, manual transmission, and nothing power except for power steering and power mirrors.

SOURCE: low beam headlights do not work, but high beam headlights do


I've been troubleshooting this same problem on a different vehicle this week, and I can give you the steps I'd take.

1. If both sides went out at the same time, the problem is *NOT* likely to be the bulbs.

2. Check the fuses to see if both low beam lights are on the same fuse. Many cars have one fuse for low beam and another for high beam, so both lights out at the same time typically means fuse blown.

3. If the headlights are OK and the fuses are OK, then the problem is *LIKELY* the headlight switch. In my case, AutoZone has one and it can be installed easily; but in your case, that may not be as simple.

Please post your findings or comments.

What you have sounds like a Headlight SWITCH Problem, You can check the Fuse for them (DOUBTFULL) but its a Large one @ Power distribution Box Under Hood.

I have a 2007 Nissan Versa and replaced the headlights (one bulb) on both sides within the last 6 months; only the brights are working; dims stopped working at the same time. Local Auto Zone stated it was...


Look and check the head light/ low relay.

Seems that relay is not functioning anymore. To check it, ask somebody to turn on the headlight and you must hear some clicking sound on the relay box, if there are no clicking, pull out the relay and insert a similar type around that area, just to check if it works. Try to use that relay( the low beam) also to another similar socket to see if it works.

If the relay is still okay, problem would be the main light switch itself. Most nissan got problem with the contact points in the switch, the stopper that directs the contact points are made of plastic and tends to melt and holds the metal contact point instead of pushing it to another contactor.

Hope that helps you out!

Thanks for using Fixya!

2002 pontiac grand prix gt. High beams are dimmer

A loose ground wire to the headlight will keep it dim,Or a headlight adjustment will bring the headlight up.If you can have your headlight turned on a garage door or something at night,and then watch as you change your headlights from low beam to high beam which ones are higher.the last thing to verify is that your high beam headlights are not the plastic lens type that turn dull which cuts the light power.
