2004 chevy cavalier harness re-wire

I took my car to the dealer after noticing that the driver’s headlight glowed while the passenger’s side worked fine. The driver’s bulb was replaced but the problem continued. I also noticed when the low beams are switched to high I have to turn the lights off to day running lights, turn the beams off, and then turn back on the lights in order for the beams to go off. The dealer traced the wiring and found that the harness rubbed through at the body seam and the left harness will need to be re-wired. What can cause the harness to rub through at the body seam?

Well usually it's due to a missing or damaged grommet at the fire wall. There's a number of other ways to have a short like that too.

I have a 2004 chevy imapala, the headlight on the drivers side will not work, we switched the headlight with the passenger headlight and it works fine and the passenger did the same thing on the drivers...


If the good bulb worked on both sides and the bad bulb did not work on either side [I think this what you said] then the bulb is burnt out.
Just to be sure see if the supposed defective bulb works on High beam.

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.

I have a 2003 chevy cavalier. headlight issue


The blinking light is telling you that you have a headlight out, if you look the service light should be coming on when the light stops blinking.
Replace the head light and all should be fine.

2004 chevy cavalier headlight problem


Ain't no "might be", I believe the person who told you it was a ground issue is probably shaking his head over the fact that you have not acted on this. Take apart the sockets that plug the wiring harness off that way and make sure they have no excessive corrosion, not forgetting to check the condition of the headlight plug-in. Any ground strap you see along that harness needs to be removed, cleaned and fastened securely with a shot of anticorrosion gunk (your choice, I don't think it matters one damn bit what kind you use since it all should work). Get to work! Enjoy yourself and figure about an hour (+-) for the job.
