Hello,
Well if its not the bulb I would look at the fuse. Check to see if you have voltage at the plug when the lights are turned on. If the fuse is fine it may be the light switch. You can test this switch but you have to access the back of the switch.
Good luck!

How do i remove the head light on a 2008 chevy Malibu


Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Changing both headlight bulbs on your Malibu at the same time will allow both bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the new headlight bulb from appearing brighter than the bulb on the opposite side. In some Chevrolets, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb (and vise versa). Some Chevrolets have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights. These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. If your Malibu has this type of bulb, we do not recommend that you attempt to change it yourself.

When you change the headlight on your Malibu, it is important to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb.

Hope this helps! :)

Headlights not working


The new headlights, probably blew the fuse check the fuse and relay if so get a bigger fuse to run the new headlights. Remember when replacing any light in your vehicle to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your bare fingers..

One headlight on my 04 f250 lowbeam only won't work even with new bulb


Try a new Relay. Sometimes Ford uses the same part in other sockets. The horn relay may be interchangeable for testing.

Relays are shown in the help section of Autozone.com when you register your vehicle.

I need to change the headlights in a 1998 cavalier but I don't know how to take off the cover for the headlights?


You change the bulbs from the back of the composite headlight assembly. Open the hood, turn the bulb connector counterclockwise-about a quarter turn, and pull connector and bulb out. Take old bulb out, put new on on-don't touch the bulb glass with your fingers, body oil may shorten bulb life.

How to change the headlight bulbs on my 2007 mazda 6


  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.

  • Now look at the diagram below and notice where the arrow points. You want to carefully press down (don't break that tab) and remove the back cover to the headlight assembly

  • Now get behind the headlight (under the hood) and the top wires are your headlights.

  • Gently tug it out and pop the old light strait out.

  • When replacing the new bulb in the socket don't touch it with your fingers or the oils on your finger will make that bulb blow within seconds. Wipe it real clean with a clean cloth if you accidenatly do.

  • Reverse the rest of the steps to complete.

  • Hope this helps.

Need to replace headlamp - no idea whats involved


Don't know your Lincoln model, but replacing the headlight bulb can be OK...inpect the underhood location of the Headlight assembly...review the back side, which holds in the bulb...you can check your local parts store for exactly which bulb your model needs...be sure to use gloves when handling the new bulb...the natural oil on our fingers will cause the new bulb to wear out prematurely...Most headlight assemblies are fully removal from the car allowing you to switch out the bulb from the backside...reassemble, and be sure to test before final assembly...Bulbs will range from $8. to over $50...depending on design and preferred performance...Hope this helps.

Changing passenger side low beam headlight bulb for 2001 Buick LeSabre Custom


there is very little room to gain access to the bulb from behind the headlight assembly.if you remove the plug for the headlight and then slide your hands down on either side of the bulb.there is a lock ring that you must remove(unlock)first.then pull the bulb out and install the new bulb and reassemble in reverse order.NOTE don`t touch the bulb glass with your hands or it can burn out prematurely from the oil on your skin.

Low beam head lights not working - The low beams, both stopped working. The high beams work fine. I checked the fuses and all 4 are good. I even swapped the low and high beam fises just in case. No...


if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

96 camry headlight dont work


Headlights are one of the most important safety features on your car, but they can only do their job if they're properly maintained. It's not just burned out headlights that cause problems; headlights that are dim or incorrectly aligned can also lead to accidents. Fortunately, learning how to repair headlights is something even the least mechanically inclined person can do. When you know how to repair headlights yourself, you can save up to several hundred dollars on mechanic's fees. Here are some tips on how to repair headlights with common problems.

Headlights that don't turn on
If you're headlights aren't working at all, the most likely cause is a burned out bulb. All you need to do to repair the headlights is replace the bulb. If you have plastic lenses, you can take out the old bulb by removing the lens and unscrewing the bulb from the back of the lens. With glass headlights, though, you'll need to replace the whole glass. Since you're buying new bulbs anyway, consider picking up one of the new, brighter types of bulbs, such as the halogen or xenon types.
When you've got your replacement bulb, install it and turn on the lights. If the headlights still don't work, it's a sign of an electrical problem. Because electrical problems are relatively complicated to repair, take your car to a mechanic before you try to do anything else with the headlights.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
