The headlight socket is probably not making contact with the light bulb, you may have to replace the light socket. If you get a lot of condensation in there, you make want to purchase some dielectric grease and put a bit on the bulb when replacing. This will keep condenstion away and prevent corrosion on the contacts.

Headlight problems with my 2008 chevy equinox


We'll if you are replacing bulbs and they work when you put them in but burn out quickly, that symptom along with condensation inside the lens surly indicates a moisture problem meaning somewhere there is a bad seal in the headlight lens assembly.

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy XL....My headlights were working ok when they wanted to....I could be driving down the street and they would just go off the manaul switch doesnt make them come on either usually...


Okay, lets start with the sensor, the sensor fell inside the dash which means its in a dark place which makes it think it dark out and its turning on the headlight all the time, the first thing to check is the headlight bulbs as they may have gone bad being on all the time. i would replace them anyway if you have not already. my next step even if the light are woriking now is to get the sensor out of the inside of the dash, with sensor out and back in it spot try to control the lights manually and if they dont work then switch should be replaced.

again check the bulbs first.another thing , try turning on the headlight with the switch and try to turn on the highbeam to see ifthey come on.if they do then check the bulbs and als the bulb sockets as they are pron to burning and melting the plastic causing a bad connection, this i have seen make headlight turn on and off as you are driving, the switch will also cause this until it burns out.

let reveiw. First check the bulbs. hope this is helpful.

2001 grand caravan low beam light not working. i chang bulb already i check fuse already.


Hi Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch.
Thanks for using Fixya.

My right turn signal doesn't work when I turn my headlights on. Sometimes they don't work for a couple days then they start working again.


You may have a bad signal light switch or a bad flasher, i would start by replacing the flasher, most of the time its just a bad flasher.

I have a 97 jeep wrangler. the headlights wont turn on. all other light work fine. the fuse is also fine


Try a couple things if you haven't tried already.

First try replacing the bulbs (sometimes the most obvious answer is the right one, and not meant to offend you).

Then, try replacing the headlight relay (found in the fuse box and looks like a small black cube that plugs in similar to a fuse with some extra prongs).

Then, try replacing the headlight switch.

Finally, while inspecting the headlight switch, make sure the wires are connected and not broken, worn out, or corroded. Same thing with the wires connecting the headlights.

Let me know if this helped you out.

Automatic Headlights don't work on Impala - Police Package.


I have an 2004 impala and every now and then it would lose the headlights for a couple of seconds and they would come back on. I finally replace the headlight switch and the problem went away. A switch, if I remember right, was about $500.
