SOURCE: Left low beam is dim

The mechanic didn't hook up the ground wire. The system is using the other light as it's ground and when this happens it causes the other light to go out.

Check the ground wires

SOURCE: replacing low beam head lamp 2006 trailblazer

with my 2003 gmc when you open the hood and look at the top of the head light assembly you see two rods that kinda look like the end of an allen wrench (hard to explain in words) you have to turn them a quarter turn to unlock them and then pull them straight up and out. they are pins that hold the headlight assembly into the truck. when you remove them the whole assembly will then come out forward and you can change the bulb. the hard part if aligning the holes and getting the pins back in. dont forget to turn the pins back into the locked position after. hope this helps as my truck is a little older.

SOURCE: change headlamp bulb 2000 chevy malibu

The headlight is a Halogen that comes out the back.
Find the wire harness and follow it to the back of the light to a rubber cover. Pull the rubber cover off the back and find a holder. Unscrew or releade the wire "spring" then pull out the old bulb.
BR SURE NOT to touch the glass part of the new bulb.....

Find out the model of the light bulb you use and go to an auto parts store. Tell them you need a plug for bulb type xyz. Then just cut and splice the wires together, matching which wire goes where from the faulty plug. Should get the part for under $10.

I have a 96 Cavalier and my passenger side low beam does not turn on (high beams OK) & my horn doesn't work either. I've replaced the bulb with no luck. Any suggestions?


The light socket itself could be bad. If you turn on the lights and put a meter on it you can verify there is power at the socket. If not you still have to trouble shoot some more. No power at socket could be wiring that went bad or melted but you will have to remove the socket and test the wires themselves. No power at the wire bare ends you have to go back to the fuse distribution and check that. Low voltage sucks for this very reason. good luck.

Low beam head lamps are not working,But the high beams are working fine.I checked the fuses they are good.is there anything that i need t check?


This is a recall issue on the 2004-2007 Forenza. You need to contact a Suzuki dealership and they should do the repair for free under the recall. It is a connector behind the dash cluster that melts and causes the low beams to stop working. My girlfriend just had hers do the same thing and we took it in and it was done free of charge under the recall. Hope this helps.

Root cause of 2003 chev trailblazer low beam socket melting.


Very common problem for TB's, should of been a recall. It's a manufacturer problem, the guage of the wires are too small and the socket just can't tolerate high heat, so tend to melt out. Try switching to a high heat socket, from a site like rockauto.com. Or if you can find a ceramic socket, that's even better.
