No --there are two separate light power systems for the bulbs but a shared earth wire. Bulbs blow from power fluctuations that occur from loose earth wires, dirty earth points so check the way the bulbs are put back in and ensure that they are tight.

SOURCE: Driver side headlight bulbs burned out on 2003 VW Golf

There is a light cover in front of the battery... take this off and then look for the metal clamps holding the light housing in.  (I say clamps, but they're more like glorified paper clips on either side of the fixture.)  Press in on each side, pushing the clamps towards each other and pull the fixture out.

SOURCE: replace low beam bulb in 2005 jetta

  1. Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the socket cover by pulling it straight off, or turning it clockwise then pulling it off.
  4. Carefully twist the bulb and socket counterclockwise, then pull the assembly from the headlight housing.
  5. Holding the base of the bulb, detach it from the connector harness.

To install:
  1. Holding the base of the bulb, install it securely in the connector.
  2. Install the connector and bulb assembly in the housing and twist to lock into position.
  3. Install the sealing cover by pushing it on and/or turning it counterclockwise. Make sure the cover is installed securely or the lens will be out of focus, or water may get into the light unit.
  4. Disconnect the negative battery cable and check the headlight operation.

1996 vw jetta problem with the headlights. The daytime running lights work fine the high beams work fine, but when you turn on the lights from the switch the driver side headlight turns off. I've checked...


I don't have a wiring diagram ,but on most cars I would say your low beam bulb is bad. Try swapping sides to see if the problem goes with it, or just replace the bulb. You can always keep the new one until needed someday... shadetree mech by necessity.
