How to fix low beam headlights won't come on---hi beams work ok?


Kenneth, you need to give more details on what kind of vehicle, year, make, style and so forth so we can attempt to make a judgment on this.

Well did you try the solution?


Your headlights are an essential safety system for nighttime driving & visibility. If your headlights are not working, or are not aimed properly, you might not be able to see the road clearly.

Here are some suggestions on how to troubleshoot various kinds of headlight problems:

Problem: One headlight does not work

This usually means one of the headlight bulbs has burned out. Bulbs have a limited life that depends on the number of hours of use, and how much vibration they have been subjected to over time. The thin tungsten filament inside an incandescent headlight bulb will eventually burn out. The more nighttime driving you do, the sooner one or both headlights will fail. A typical automotive incandescent headlamp (halogen or regular) has a service life that may range from 600 to as much as 2000 hours of use. For the average motorist who drives 12,000 to 15,000 miles a year, that means replacing a headlight maybe every five or six years depending on how often the headlights are used. Driving on rough roads may cut that life short by causing the delicate filament inside the bulb to fail prematurely.

The Fix: Replace the burned out bulb.

But before you do that, inspect the electrical connector on the back of the headlight carefully for damage, and see that it is not corroded or loose.

The headlight bulbs on most vehicles today are changed from the back of the headlight housing. The housing is a sealed plastic shell with the bulb and socket mounted on the back. The socket that holds the bulb usually twist-locks into the housing. Rotating it counterclockwise about ¼ turn will unlock the tabs and allow you to pull the bulb and socket out of the housing. Access on some vehicles is easy, but on others you may have to remove other components that are in the way, or even remove the housing mounting bolts and remove the housing before you can change the bulb. See your owners manual or the vehicle service literature for detailed instructions on how to replace a headlight bulb.

Once the socket has been removed from the headlight housing, you can pull the old bulb out of the socket and replace it with a new one (must be the same size and style as the original bulb).

Aftermarket replacement bulbs with slightly higher wattage ratings and/or tinting are available to upgrade headlight performance and improve nighttime and bad weather visibility.
best regards,

daid

How to change headlight bulb


On the back of the headlight where the wires enter, you should be able to twist and remove the lamp holder. Be careful with the new bulb if it is halogen, do not touch the bulb!!

Removing headlamp


  • Place a piece of cardboard between the headlight and the bumper to protect your vehicle from getting scratched when you remove the headlight. Use masking tape to hold the cardboard in place.
  • 2 Remove the four screws that hold the headlight to the vehicle's frame. Pull the headlight away from the vehicle's frame so you have access to the back of the headlight.
  • 3 Locate the electrical connector block on the back of the headlight. Squeeze the sides of the block and pull it away from the headlight to access the bulb.
  • 4 Remove the bulb from the headlight. Push the bulb in, toward the connector block, and turn it until it releases. Push the new bulb into the block and turn it until it locks in place.
  • 5 Plug the electrical connector block back into the headlight and place the headlight back into the vehicle's frame. Secure the headlight with the screws. Remove the cardboard from the vehicle bumper.

    How do I take the front window out of a junk yard 1992 cadillac sedan de ville ( no battery) without riping the tint?


    I would worry about saving the glass from breakage. The tint will get scratched no matter how its removed. By the way most states ban tinted windows on the front doors of all vehicles. That is why the rear windows from the factory are tinted with the exception of Wisconsin. They ban tinted windows period

    How do I remove the tint of my rear window in my 1998 chevy Malibu?


    If it has a rear window defroster, you can't use a razor blade. If the tint material will pull off and leave glue behind, then spray windex on the glass and put the tint material back on the glass like it was. Can't do this in the sun to long, the sun will dry out the windex. The ammonia in the windex will loosen up the glue. Then you can remove the tint material, and the glue should wipe of with a paper towel.
    p.s. let the windex soak for 5 min. or so.

    How do i get the back parcel shelf out of my bmw 530d so i can tint the rear window? and also the back seats to get the parcel shelf out ?


    Why do you need to remove the parcel shelf and the seats just to tint the window?
    If you are using film tint lay it on the outside of the window cut it a little larger than you need it. Clean the inside rear window then use a squirt bottle with soapy water in it spray the window roll out you tint using a squeegee to remove air pockets. Finally trim the edge with a razor blade window tinted.

    Windows tint


    If it's factory tint, it is imbedded in glass and can't be removed.
    If it's add on tint, it is just a plastic film on inside of glass.
    Call a tinting shop and ask what chemical to spray on film to soften adhesive, or ask for removal quote too

    Brighter headlights?


    This is a good article on the future and dangers of "Brighter" headlight. http://blog.mlive.com/chronicle/2008/02/headlights_cause_glare_but_are.html
    If your vehicle seems to have less headlight intensity than when it was newer, you might want to check the headlight lense covers. If they are plastic they might be fogged from age. This fog is on the surface and can be removed to make the lense clear again. Auto parts sell a kit to do this with and some car wash or repair shops offer this service as well. It makes a big difference. Hint: to keep from happening again, spray the lense covers with high temp clear coat spray paint.
