1998 Buick LeSabre Headlight issue

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.

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.

I put in a new headlight bulb in the drivers side in but i dont have low beams but high beams work what is the problem?


Usually the low beam light of the bulb burns out first, so this new bulb is acting like it is defective. If the passenger side bulb is working for both low and high beams you could test this new bulb on that side to be sure. If it works OK on this side there may be a problem with the connector wiring on the driver side.

Are you sure you replaced the bulbs with the same brand/model as on the passenger side? There are a lot of different versions with different light colors and intensities.
If so, have you made sure there is no water vapor in the headlight housing, and that the silvering inside is not degraded?

Low beams on 2004 chevy trailblazer wont work but high beams work fine.lights all work automaticly


Try changing the bulbs. No. They didn't both burn out at once. You probably drove for a while with one headlight, and didn't know it.

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Low beams will now work, high beams do. We replaced the bulbs and the low beams worked for a while and then didn't again, husband took out passenger side bulb and put it back...


Make sure that you are using the head light bulbs for that particular make/model if the bulb number is wrong then the intensity is wrong too. Now a day there are many diffrent numbers of bulbs in the market according to vehicle.
