Question about 1998 Buick LeSabre
Currently my low beams do not work. The problem is that they didn't just burn out. The passenger side light was the first to go. It would intermittently work over a period of about 6 months and finally quit all together. 2 months after that the driver side headlight stopped working. I replaced the bulbs but its still not working. I also checked all the fuses under the dash and under the hood. I also bought a relay and tried it in all the relay spots. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Check the fuse terminals for corrosion, and the terminals at the end of the wires connecting the bulb. Check the gaps at the connector. If too wide, (wider than the terminal on the bulb) that may be the issue. I hypothesis that over very long period of time, due to vibration of the wire and terminal, those terminals may loose contact with the bulb terminal. Have it replaced if that is the issue. Prior to that, check if there is any current passing through to this terminal. If there is no current, you may have a grounding issue on the wire harness.
