Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

New replacement light won't work. Fuse? Wiring? Crummy replacement?

I have replaced the headlight, but it does not work, yet the other one works fine. Are there independent fuses, or do I have a bum light?

    Thanks for the effort! Found it was an (individual) bad fuse.

The headlights are fused, I can't be sure if they are separate. On the 1999 Beetle the fuse box is located on the side of the driver's dash which is concealed when the door is closed. When my daughter gets home, it's actually her car, I will check and let you know if they are separate.

    OK, there are separate fuses for each headlight, fuse numbers 20 and 21.

My 2005 matrix keeps blowing 15amp rear running light fuse every time light get turned on all other lights work fine.whats causing this?


fuses blow because of dead shorts or excess current draw
to blow a 15 amp fuse indicates a dead short
by disconnecting the rear lights , the problem is in something else you have replaced
could be a problem in the head light wiring

Rf highbeam doesnt work,after new bulb install 02 monteSS


Check for 12VDC at the connector with your high beams on. Could be the wiring or the connector and no they run on the same fuse.

My durango headlight will not work on the right side


Well the turn signals are a different circuit.
Usually the common problem with one headlight is the ground circuit.
Both the high and low beam use the same ground. I would check for power for each circuit and a good ground at the light socket.

1997 Ford E350 clearance lights don't work


First check the fuse, the clearance lights are not factory in most cases and the wiring gets shorted from poor wiring. Once you replace the fuse see if the lights come on, if the fuse blows right away find the wiring to the clearance lights and disconnect them, if the short goes away it is a I said the wiring is shorted. If you don't have the owner's manual you should be able to download it at the link provided. It should be fuse #10 a 20 AMP in the interior fuse box. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/97ecoog1e.pdf

Dear Sir/Madam,

  1. Check your fuses. The plastic panel covering the fuses should have a diagram detailing what each fuse covers. If yours is missing, or unlabeled, check your owner's manual, or a Hanes(tm) or Chilton(tm) repair manual. Often if a headlight is not working, it is the result of a blown fuse. Fuses have a wire running through them that will melt when too much current is run through them. If the fuse is blown, the wire will be broken. If the fuse for the headlight you are working on has an intact wire, it is likely the problem lies elsewhere.
  2. Swap the headlight for its twin. If your left headlight does not work, put the light from your right headlight in its place. If it works with the other headlight in place, your headlight bulb is dead, and needs to be replaced.
  3. If this does not work, try using a voltmeter on the plug for the bad headlight. Turn on the ignition, and turn the headlight switch. If the voltmeter shows no current, then either your switch or the wiring leading to the headlight has gone bad.
  4. If replacing your headlight switch does not solve the problem, then there is a break in the wiring leading to the headlight, and the wiring will need to be replaced.
Thanks
Good Luck
