It could be a relay (under the hood), a worn out high-beam/low-beam switch, or headlight switch. If you own a test light it would help to narrow it down. Also check the plug, to each component, for breaks, overheating, or damage.

Why dont you start by checking the fuses for headlights refer to your owners manual for the location of the fuse box for your car. if the fuses are good then replacing headlight bulbs to both headlight assembly is your next step.If after replacing both headlight bulb you still have the same problem then you might have other electrical issues.

The left headlight on my 2002 honda accord doesnt work


look for blowed 10 amp fuse in the interior fuse box.dont put any fuse in any empty fuse slots because you dont what controls that circuit.could cause electrical fire.if fuse okay could have bad bulb.if headlight bulb is blowed wear clean pair of gloves because headlight bulbs are halogen if you touch bulb with fingers,oils from you fingers will cause halogen bulbs overheat and blow out.halogen bulbs is not cheap.

Top headlight bulbs on both sides do not work any solutions


sounds like the bulbs are burnt out, replace the bulbs and if they dont lite then check the fuses, sometimes the fuse blows when bulbs pop.you should be able to acess from under hood, remove cover, unplug headlight connector then remove clip holding light in, then pull light out,watch position of bulb coming out so that new one is installed the same way. hope this helps.

My passenger side low beam headlight is out. the driver side low beam headlight works fine. I replaced the bulb and the headlight still doesn't work. What should I look at next?


Check the fuse. There are seperate fuses for right and left. You dont mention if the high beam works for that side? If it does, the fuse is good. The GREEN wire at the bulb is the ground for the low beam. If that wire has power, then the ground is bad. If the high beam works, the hi'lo beam switch is good, and there is a problem between that headlight and the Engine Compartment Junction Block

Check to see if you have power to them with a test light. If yopu do, replace bulbs, if you don't check ground wire and circuit breaker.
