Fuses are a number one culprit in cars and because there is a computer in your newer car it is helpful to FIRST read your owners manual, and keep it in your car. Second, do always check fuses and you can simply replace but if that is not working then there is wisdom in have your computer checked at a dealership. Also, make sure you do check with a dealer to see if there are any recall parts on your VIN number. Get them replaced for free and know your warranty, as well.

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.

Where is the main fuse box of signal lights and stop lights of a 1991 honda accord 4 cilinder.


HI. This vehicle contains a under the hood relay box near the front corner of the battery(which is labeled if not deteriorated), and there is also a fuse container box located below the left side of the instrument panel, as well(inside the vehicle on driver side).

The under-hood fuse box generally contains fuses and relays for engine and major electrical systems such as air conditioning, headlights (left and right respectively), fuel injection components, etc. The in-car fuse-box holds fuses for the cabin circuits such as wipers, cigarette lighter, rear defogger, signal lights etc.

2003 GMC Envoy low beam head lights will not come on. The bulbs are not blown, fuse's ok, no power coming to the head light connector. minimal power to the fuse compartment with fuse removed. 9 to 10...


The problem is a Headlight module. Fuse box under the hood has two black modules side by side, the one on your right is the headlight module the one on the left is the fan module. Try swapping them, if the headlights work replace bad module, don't drive vehicle with the bad module in the fan slot. Mine kept going bad because I had a high intensity bulb on one side.

Both headlights went out yesterday, I am thinking it was a fuse, to blow both lights at the same time ?


Appereantly headlight on the Kia do not last long, I have lost count of headlamp replacements. Basically, I would say that they last about 5-6 months or less, and we don't do a lot of driving. We have learned to turn off our headlights during the day to minimize run time and on/off surges. We have already had to deal with one fix-it ticket and we are constantly worried about getting pulled over because one of the headlights could blow at any moment. I buy headlights in two packs now to save money. Before you change the headlights check the fuses, in both fuse boxes for any blown fuses, One is under the hood to your right side beneath a black case I beleive, and the other is in the car, near the drivers left leg on the wall.

Where is the tail light fuse inside the fuse box inside the car? No lid for the diagram :(


The second junction block (No. 2) is found under the hood on the forward part of the left wheelhouse (driver's side). The fuses, fusible links and relays in this junction block generally control the engine and major electrical systems on the car, such as headlights (separate fuses for left and right), air conditioning, horns, fuel injection, ECM, and fans.

No power to left front headlamp - low beam


There are relays that control the headlights in a fuse box under the hood near the firewall.. There's also a fuse box underneath the dash on the driver's side, but can't remember if it's on the underside of the dash or beside it

No headlights


I found the connectoers to the headlights to be un weather proofed. I went to auto zone or advance auto to buy replacement connectoers, The replacement I bought had 3 wires, Black, Red, Green, and they have a rubber protective boot so as not to fail again. Turn off the car and disconnect your battery.
1. Pull the plug on the headlight
2. cut the wires
3. Black to black, blue w/red stripe to green, and blue to Red. I would use **** connecters with a heat shrink, or just tape really good with black electrical tape.
4. plug new connector in to headlight and test. Should be ok now.
