SOURCE: Suzuki swift Headlight problem

Have you checked to see if this is a wiring problem or maybe a relay problem?

Recently my lights would work on side lights and not anything else and this was down to dodgy wiring and needed a new relay unit.

The main/high beam relay/switch must be stuck on high presuming the high beam stalk selector does not operate. Probably needs replacement.

SOURCE: headlight main beam not working

Strange headlamp problems on Saabs can often be attributed to a failing Headlamp relay. Here are a few common situations:
Issue1 - Headlamp switch will work backwards: Turn on the switch and theheadlights go off and turn off the switch and the headlights will goon.
Issue 2 - High beams will disappear. You will have nohighbeams. Be sure to check the headlight bulbs PRIOR to ordering therelay. Remember however that it is possible for both high beams burn out at the same time
Issue3 - High beams will not work only the low beams will.
Issue 4 - A single bulb setting (low or high) on either side will not work and bulb replacement will fix it.
You can sometimesfix these issues by removing the relay, taking off the cover andresoldering the connections on the relay bottom. To perform this repair, go to my illustrated tutorial at customsaab.com.
In some cases youwill have to replace the relay to effect a long term cure. The aftermarket replacement can be had at Eeuroparts.com for about $60.00:

SOURCE: how do I align low beam headlight in 2006 honda

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Purchased new but not original vauxhall headlights and when switched on they point down, not out in front like they did on originals. Levelling motors are fitted.


put the lights on and check the adjustment of the levelling motors check the method of fixing the motors to the headlights as it may be a hole out or a screw adjustment on a rod.. Remember low beam is meant to point down with only the main beam lights to point straight ahead

How to fit a 2nd reversing light to my Vauxhall astra


using the original wiring and a new live wire. this can be used on the tow wiring loom located under the boot cover at the bottom. and a relay. wire the the new light up and place the earth wire on a good earthing point.use a wire from the reversing wire and connect to the relay switching side of the relay and use the live wire from loom for tow wire. also place a fuse on this wire 10amp will be fine. if you are using the 2nd reversing lights for a caravan etc don't use this live wire use a new wire. most wiring looms have a wire on to loom for reversing light. so check that first. it can handle 2 new lights at a maximum of 10w which is adequate for the new lights. as you have not said what year astra it is both of these should work fine. there is also a main live in the pass side rear side compartment used for electrical extras cd player etc there will be a plug with nothing connected to it. it is ignition control 25amp rating. so a 10amp fuse will be fine on this line.

What bulb do I need to get my headlight working


Hi there:
I suggest go to the Vauxhall website, sign up for "My Vauxhall" (it's free) and you can then download a manual in pdf format. The earliest manual for an Astra is 2002, but the headlight bulb changing instructions will be the same, and should be on pages 212 onward.



If its the dipped headlight bulb then the bulb itself (H7 fitment) sits inside a brown L shaped bulb holder that twist fits into the lens. Just twist it anti clockwise and remove - disconnect the multi-plug connector from the bottom of the brown bulb holder first tho.

If however its the main beam bulb (HB3 fitment) then the bulb holder is actually part of the bulb and comes as 1 complete unit.

I trust from your description that its the dipped bulb thats gone. Once its light, have a look and see what u think

It really is straight forward and you shouldnt have any issues. If you manage it - then note how the bulb fits into the bulb holder and fit the new bulb in its place - dont touch the glass though so use the base to push it into position... refit, twist into position making sure the 3 tabs around the edge of the bulb holder are correctly seated and fit the electrical connection in place.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My polo main headlights do not work but my full beam does work


Hi, the main headlights work through a separate fuse from the full beam. If all the fuses are fine the problem might be that the globes has blown on the vehicle. To make 100% sure that it is the globes, see if you get power to the headlights when the main lights are switched on.
