My left low beam headlight on a 2008 impala wont work What Ive tried already is replacing the bulb checking the fuses and since there is a fuse designated to the left low beam I looked at it and its fine Replacing the bulb didn't work and nothing else is out but the driver side low beam Any help suggestions would be greatly appreciated My next bet is trying to replace the bulb wire but I want to make sure first if that is a good option to pursue Thanks in advance

SOURCE: low beam headlight on Pilot 2004

Hi again,

I lookd for the Technical Service Bulletin on headlights that you referred to in our Live Chat. It is Service Bulletin 07-027 dated May 12, 2007. A downloadable copy is avaibale here. It contains procedures, photos and images on how to address the issue. However, may I point out that said TSB refers to both left & right low beams and not only the right.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: my passenger side low beam headlight is out. the

Check the fuse. There are seperate fuses for right and left. You dont mention if the high beam works for that side? If it does, the fuse is good. The GREEN wire at the bulb is the ground for the low beam. If that wire has power, then the ground is bad. If the high beam works, the hi'lo beam switch is good, and there is a problem between that headlight and the Engine Compartment Junction Block

SOURCE: no low beams bulbs are ok fuses look good

There may be a relay that operates the low beam lights, check the owners manual to see if there is a relay, you should be able to hear it go "click" if there is one.

My 2008 saturn vue headlight on drivers side works on his beam but will not work on low beam. We checked the fuses they or ok


In the diagram for left low beam, the top wire color is voltage, black wire is ground. Check them both.
Have you tried swapping bulb from one side to the other to see if problem follows the bulb. If it does, then of course the bulb is the problem. Don't touch bulb with bare fingers. I can't rule out a wiring problem? At the proper fuse did you check for voltage, use a test lite.

2008 ford ranger headlight relay bad? Lamps do not light up, checked BULBS..OK no left highbeam Left and right lamp fuses ok and hi/lo 30a fuse ok


Did you check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a testlite or something.
I posted part of headlamp wiring. You understand your dimmer switch is involved in the circuits.

I have no low beam headlights. already checked bulbs, fuses, relay and dimmer switch. can you help?


Before you replace the #46 HDM relay (in the fuse block under the hood) try exchanging it with the #45 cooling fan relay and see if your low beam lights work. If they do, the HDM relay (actually solid state module, not a relay) is bad.

The low beams on my 2006 buick lacrosse wont work the bulbs and fuses have been replaced but they still wont work


Shannon, you did not state if you checked for voltage at the fuse location-or better yet at the bulb location-
If a connection at the relay that feeds power to the low beams has come loose, then the low beams will stay out. Suggest that you locate the headlight relay (in a box under the hood) and verify that it is operating. If an assistant can operate the headlights while you listen (and feel) for relay operation, then you can eliminate that as an issue. Next would be the output of the relay (contacts could be bad) - and if you cannot open the relay to verify good contacts, then purchase a replacement relay (possibly from a junkyard) and plug that in.

Remember, the relay supplies the power to the headlights.

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.

Acura 2003 3.2TL driver side headlight low beam is out...is not the bulb ..how can this be? any idea?


most newer vehicles have individual fuses and or relays that controls each headlight separately, check the fuse panel under the hood, inside the lid there is usually a listing of what the fuses and relays do. look for drivers side low beam and take a look at the fuse, if it blown, try to replace the fuse, but there is usually a reason why it blew in the first place.
How did you test to see if the bulb was still good? ive seen dead bulbs that still look ok, try and plug the bulb from the non working side into the working side and double check.

Both low beams do not work. High beams do work
