Question about 2005 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Replaced both headlights. Driver's side is fine. Passenger side does not work. I can hear a clicking noise in relay/fuse box under hood which is located near the headlight. Did relay blow out during replacement? Which relay? There are 4 relays I believe.

Not likely in the altima i have experienced more fuse related issues, switch the head lights and see if they both work

    Did that. The bulb works. I could get the fuses out to check them. That will be my next move.

    I would also look for any broken or frayed wires between the fuse box and your headlight

    I looked around for frayed wires or bad connections but did not see any. The driver's side headlight was actually not working so I bought 2 bulbs so that both sides would look correct. I replaced the driver's side with no problem. The passenger side light, which was working, I was just going to replace to match the driver's side but unfortunately something happened to make the passenger side stop working.

SOURCE: left turn signal + headlights

Try turning the 4-way flashers on with the headlights and see if it looks normal or if it looks like they are flashing alternately instead of together. If it looks like they are flashing alternately, you have a bad ground on that bulb. Difficult to explain easily, but bulb grounds through the circuit that is turned off until both circuits are energized, then problems occur. If not, try unplugging the U-Haul harness, they usually are just plug in deals and see if that fixes it.

No, it is not likely that hte relay is bad. since you are getting power to that passenger side lamp you are getting power from the fuse block and the battery, the problem lays in the bulb itself or the power/ ground wire to the lamp socket. You need to do a continuity check on the power line and then check the ground for that lamp. You should be able to narrow it down to one of those two things from that and repair the wire or lose ground. Although my money is on a bad wire from power to the lamp socket.

Where is the horn on my 2012 ford focus?


First.. check the horn fuse under the hood (see owner's manual for fuse location).. Second, check the horn connection--- the ground is unlikely, but possible, rather, on the front passenger side of the car, from the top, look down below the headlight, and beside the radiator, and you will see the horn assembly... The connection is at the bottom of the horn--- mine looked fine, but still did not work, even though I could hear the relay click when I hit the horn button in the car--- I placed a crowbar under the connector and pulled up slightly to reseat it. This was indeed the issue and the horn works again. If you don't hear the relay click when you hit the horn (or panic) button, try getting it from the dealer and replacing it (under five bucks), and the relay is also in the fuse box under the hood (beside the battery)... You will need the code on the relay as it is not in the system yet, as of November 2014... Good luck!

Low beam headlight - passenger side - on my 2006 Buick Lacrosse does not work. I've tried a new bulb - no help. The fuse - underhood fuse box - for the low beam is good. There is no voltage to that fuse...


From Info I have looked at I believe under hood micro switch relay 35 is for low beam and 34 is for high beam. It also looks like you have a different fuse for each light. The relay are for both low beam or both high beams. each headlight has its own fuse. I believe #4 fuse under hood is for passenger side low beam. fuses 1-4 under hood are for the four headlights as I understand the info I have seen.

Headlight relay traverse


My 2011 Traverse had no LOW BEAMS ( Right and Left Side )
I changed the LOW BEAM RELAY ( a 4 prong relay ) in the fuse / relay box located under the hood on the passenger side. It didn't change the situation. Voltage was good at the relay terminals and I plugged the relay into another GM car and it worked fine. The NEXT place the voltage goes to is the LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS. The easier way to change them on a 2011 Traverse is to go through each wheel well - there is an access port behind the wheel well liner. YouTube has photos and videos on how to take this apart. Don't try to attack the problem from above in the engine compartment, the wheel well is the easier ( notice I said easier not easy ) way to go about it. BOTH of my Low Beam headlamps driver side and passenger side were burned out. I just bought the vehicle ( yeah...I know...who doesn't check the lights before buying a vehicle - right ? ) and at my wits end figured that it is such a pain in the rear to change the bulbs, that the lazy bastards that owned the vehicle just drove with one headlight and THEN the second one went out. If you can hear your low beam relay clicking ( you can feel it too if someone turns the headlights on with the key in the ignition turned to ON ) and you're getting 12 volts or higher at the relay terminals in both places ( the relay coil power and relay output terminals ) then the only thing next is the bulbs themselves. Thank God for small miracles. NOBODY likes an electrical / electronics problem.

I have 2006 Nissan Altima. The engine will not start or turnover, there is also a clicking sound that is coming from the black wiring box, which is located under the hood by front passenger side...


What size engine ? The clicking you hear is probably the starter relay , provided you hear the click while turning the key to the start position . That black box is the fuse / relay junction box. Testing the starter electrical circuits with a volt meter is the way to find the problem . Voltage drop testing . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size . Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting .

My fog lights won't work but switch shows power, however when hit the switch can hear the relay on passenger side fuse box can hear it click does that need replaced


Hi, if the light on the switch is coming on, the relay is fine. Unless both bulbs are burned out, the problem is in the wiring between the relay and the lights. I recommend you trace the wiring backward from the passenger side fog light to the power box under the hood to see if the wire is cut. There should be two wires coming out of the power box--one going to each fog light. If the wiring looks good, it is also possible that the ground to the lights is bad.
