Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Headlights stopped working

I've had the car for four years. All of a sudden the headlights stopped working. The high-beams worked but not the low-beams. I replaced the bulbs and fuses and the problem remains. What can I try now. If there's a fuse-able link to try and replace where is it and which one. Thank you.

I have a 1999 Corolla, and both headlights suddenly stopped working. The low beams don't work, but the high beams do. The fuses are fine.


low beam is a bulb on its own,usually under the big main bulb.the main big bulb works your normal night time driving and your high beam,ie.flashers.if 1 low beam has blown its more than likley a power serge blown the other side as they run off the same wiring.hope this helps.

The low beams stopped working but my high beams still do on my 1999 Mazda Protege.


  1. I own a Protege and once the low beam bulb burns on one headlight the car electronics quickly cook the bulb on the other headlight as well. it is a poor design by the mfr. Pull both bulbs to make sure the low beam is not cooked.

I startup engine, then, turned headlights. The headlights had been on about 2 seconds, then, both headlights were suddenly off. High beam lights are ok. Today, I went to AutoZone and changed new fuse (15a)...


Maybe the low beam of both headlights blew up. Headlight bulbs have 2 coils, 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam. Just like a regular light bulb, when the coil breaks the light doesn't work. But the high beams are still ok. If you've never changed em, 8 years come around its probably around time to replace them. If you can, see if you can remove the bulbs. It's pretty easy, for most cars its just locate where the lights are located under the hood, then turn the headlight bulb housing counter clockwise and should pull out. inspect it for any broken coils. if you need to replace both, get the part number or take it to a parts store and ask an employee for help. If you reinstall it yourself, be sure not to let your fingers touch the new bulb. if you do, clean it with rubbing alcohol before you put it back in the housing.

Headlights went out. Replaced bulbs and switch and still lights don't work. Fog lights and high beams work? What else can work?


If high beams work and low beams do not, then it is probably the high/low relay. It is part number 15016745 and has four prongs. To test if your relay has gone bad locate the relay in your fuse box. There will be two of these relays located next to each other. One controls the low beam headlights and the other the cooling fan. Swap the relays and check your low beam headlights. If the low beams work you have a bad relay.

Low beam not work !!


replace the headlight bulbs. Usually when the bulbs blow out the low beam blows out first, but the high beams still work. If you want and need both low and high beams to work then replace the headlight bulbs with brand new ones and I garauntee that both low and high beams will work

Low beam headlights not working on 2004 Pontiac Montana extended


You headlight lamp have a diffuser mechanism which allows it to flip between the hight beam and low beam feature of the bulb. In fact, you high beam will function even if the low beam is not working.

I would recommend the purchase of the new headlight lamp. It would cost you you any where from $15.00 per unit to get a replacement lamp

Headlight problem


High and low beams use different bulbs. Both of my low beams blow out at the same time. Replace the low beam bulbs.
