    Not sure on the Saab, but some vehicles do have separate fuses for low & high, left & right. Worth a check, if you haven't already.

I have a 1994 geo metro. The headlights went out. I checked the fuses. They were ok. The ground wire in the under dash fuse box looked discolored. I made a ground and the left side head light came on...


On these cars the headlights get power from a right and left fuse and the headlight / dimmer switches provide the ground circuit. Both headlights are connected to one ground wire for high and one for low beam. So if one works and the other does not, the problem should be in the wiring before the headlight switch. Red is for high beam and red-white is for low beam. You should be able to jumper the red-white wire on the right headlight and make the low beam circuit for both sides work to test it.

Right low beam stopped working, where is the ground wire run to check that


Do the high beams work?

The ground point is on the apron ( the inside of the fender, just behind the headlight). There is one on each side. From the wiring diagram, there is just a splice connecting power to the lights in parallel for the high and low beams, but the grounds are separate.

If the RH high beam and the LH low beam works, then it is not a ground problem. You could just tap the LH wires to power the RH, but I think that if you look closely the connector for the bulb is probably melted. If that is the case then you will have to splice on a new connector.

The colors are as follows:

RH --> low beam power ( light blue)
LH --> low beam power (white OR light blue)
BOTH high beams --> ( red/white stripe)
Ground --> Black

Sorry, The diagram is too large a file to upload.

1986 volvo headlights won't turn on


Most common problem is burned connectors at the relay that switches from high to low beams. I think that in '86, the relay was still inside the car above the driver's left foot. If not there, it is toward the front of the passenger compartment on the driver side, between the front inner fender and the battery. If it clicks when you move the dimmer switch, you can follow the click to find it. If the wires are good, the relay contacts may have failed.
On my '91, I lost the low beams because the headlight circuit in the bulb failure sensor had failed. The bulb failure sensor was an orange can-shaped device directly below the steering column under the dash. The headlight low beam wires were gray, as I recall. A new sensor was $150, so I cut the wires and bypassed it. I figured I could tell if I had a low beam burned out. I did not need a warning light for that. The bulb failure sensor still worked for the tail lights.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

Euro low beam right side brighter than left side


You have a bad ground on the left low beam. Using a test light connected to ground see what wire is positive with low beams on. Using a piece of electrical wire connect one end to ground and with the headlight connector connected to the headlight and headlights on stick the other end into back of the connector at the ground wire. If the light gets brighter, you can cut the original ground wire to the connector ( 2-3 inches from headlight connector) and run a new wire from ground and connect it to the wire at the connector. Hope this is helpful.
