    Thank you for your assistance. I was worried I would have to replace the whole headlight assembly at huge cost, but the bulb cost only $10.

Swap it out with a new bulb but make sure not to touch the glass bulb with your fingers because the oil from you fingers will cause it to go out

What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?


If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

Check wiring with a test light or volt meter. switch lights to low beam, connect volt meter N probe to a good ground then probe the light socket for the low beam power cable, should show battery voltage, now switch to high beam and test for battery voltage if ok remove the grounded meter probe and probe the cable in the socket that you have not tested this is the ground cable, battery voltage should show if ground cable is ok. If no voltage repair cable ,If voltage present check filament on bulb high beam perhaps the new bulb is faulty.

Toyota camry 2002 fuse box diagram


It is very common for both headlights to be bad, as we use our low beams a lot more than high beams. I would first suggest replacing the headlight bulb. The low beam filaments could be bad and the high beams be ok. If this doesn't help feel free to let me know and I will be happy to look a little deeper for you.

My low beams wont turn on. only my high beams


low beams are on with the high beams does NOT mean the bulbs are good. The low beams have two separate filaments, one that lights on low beam and one that lights on high beam. That's why the low beams have three terminals but the high beams have only two.It's entirely possible that both low beam filaments have burned out. If the bulbs really are good, then the dimmer switch is the most likely problem.

My headlights don't work, but the brights do. What caused this and how can I fix it?


Every headlamp has a bulb inside that has two filaments one for high beam and the other one for low beam, if any of those filament is cut then that beam (High or low) won't work. If your high beam work then your fuse it's ok, so you can visually inspect your headlights bulbs for broken filaments. remove bulb socket and remove the bulb carefully to inspect the filaments. if the filaments are atacched from one terminal to the other then the bulb it's ok, if not replace the bulb.

2002 gmc safari head light won't work on low beam but will work on high beam


First check, is there more than one headlight bulb, if so, the low beam bulb has failed, needs replacing.

If not you'll probably find that the head light bulb has a double filament, low and high beam. The low beam filament has failed. You have to replace the bulb.

No headlights come on but high beams work as well as the other lights the fuses seem to be ok. Please help.


If your highbeams are working fine, you must be referring to your low beams not working I would simply check the 2 bulbs and make sure the low beam filament is good, theres a strong possibility that your BOTH low beam filaments are bad and require replacement of both headlight bulbs to get them working again its a very simple repair.....

I have a 2001 toyota celica gt. both front headlights will not come on. the high beams work. the car was hit in the front. does the headlight circuit have a fuse or a relay and where is it located. i found...


Have you checked the light globes ? The globes have a filament for each of Low and High Beams and the Low Beam ones fail much sooner than the high. A bump as you describe may have been enough for the Low beam filaments to fail as the filaments get brittle through age.
