I have a 2008 chevy Equinox. When the headlights are on normal, the left one works but the right one doesn't. When I switch the high beams on, the right works but the left doesn't. Any suggestions?


Head lights are a two stage bulb. One filiment for low beam. One filiment for high beam. The low beam filiment is burnt out . a new set of headlight bulbs will fix you up.

Pontiac grand prix high beams work but not low beams


I have a 2008 Pontiac Grandprix GXP I had hit a deer in May the repairs were made in June of this year. Here is my problem the air bag light comes on while I'm driving the car and now I have no low beam lights. I have taken the car back to where the repairs were done, cause I think the problems are from the damages. I was informed today that there's no juice from the fuse box to the low beam switch. What would cause this?

My low beam head lights will not work, but high beam will. What could the problem be.


The headlight bulb has two elements. One works with high beam and the other works with the low beam. The low beam element is broken/fused. You have to change the headlight bulb in this case which is available at any of the auto spares shop.

2008 gmc truck Low beams quit working. I have High beams and running lights only. whats possible fix?


Are the bulbs good?

If your low and high beams are on the same bulb, then the low beam elements have blown even though the high beam still works, you need two new bulbs.

Need to replace low beam headlight bulb


Hello,

it's easier to change the light bulbs in this car than in a lot of other vehicles. The 2008 pontiac Grand Prix uses separate bulbs for low beams and high beams. The low beams are located on the outer edge of the headlight assemblies while the high beams are located on the inner edge of the assemblies.
To replace the low beam of the headlight bulb You will be in need of these instruments(Soft blanket or towel, Latex gloves, 9006 replacement headlight (low beam)), please follow the steps below:
  1. Open the hood to the 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix after making sure the headlight switch is in the off position, and the keys are not in the ignition.
  2. Approach the headlight assembly with the spent headlight in it, and locate the retaining bracket (white) holding the assembly to the frame rail of the Grand Prix.
  3. Lift the retaining bracket up about a quarter of an inch in order to align the notches of the bracket to the riveted tabs on the frame.
  4. Pull the assembly forward away from the front of the car starting with the inner corner of the assembly toward the grill. Keep in mind the wire harness connection is still attached to the assembly, so only pull it far enough to reach behind and disconnect the plug located at the bottom of the assembly.
  5. Place the headlight and bulbs assembly lens down onto a soft towel or blanket.
  6. Disconnect the respective low beam or high beam wire harness.
  7. Turn the plastic base of the headlight counterclockwise a quarter turn to align the retaining tabs with the release notches. Remove the headlight from the headlight assembly.
  8. Put on latex gloves before handling the replacement low beam or high beam headlight. Oil from skin will compromise the life of the headlights if it contacts the glass bulb.
  9. Insert the new bulb into the assembly by aligning the retaining notches to the release tabs, and then turn the base of the headlight 1/4 clockwise to lock it into the headlight assembly. Reconnect the harness to the headlight.
  10. Bring the assembly back to the Grand Prix and reconnect the main wire harness at the bottom of the assembly.
  11. Align the guide pins at the back of the assembly to the locating holes in the front frame rail starting with the outer guide pin first and the inner (toward the grill) guide pin last. Lift the assembly upward while pushing back on the lens to push down on the retaining bracket.
  12. Place the key in the ignition and turn the key to accessory power.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

I have a 2008 f250. one headlight (driverside) low beam is not working. I have checked both fuses 10amp and they are good. The flash to pass works and both lights on bright, right and left come on. the...


I am sure that a 12 Volt bulb means it needs 12 Volts. Since you changed the bulb to the other side, why not check the voltage in the working side and see what it reads?

Sometimes the turnstalk can interfere with the lighting. Try pushing the Hazard switch several times and see if the headlights straighten out. I read that too much goes through the turnstalk and that using the Hazards can derail a contact inside the stalk.

If this does not help, you may need a headlight relay in the powerbox. One contact may be dirty or burned down for the wire it feeds. Unless you have a single wire feeding both low beams to the headlights, I would bet the left and right side come out directly through the relay.

Driver's side low-beam headlight out


Purchase the correct bulb, open your hood, unscrew the white retaining ring behind the non working lamp when loose turn black connection 1/4 turn counter clockwise till tabs line up pull straight back remove old bulb put on rubber gloves or BE CAUTIOUS NOT TO TOUCH NEW BULB GLASS WITH BARE FINGERS. Oils from your hands an cause bulb to heat unevenly and cause new bulb to explode in the headlight assembly
So with gloved hands open new bulb insert follow steps in reverse to reassemble. Happy Motoring
