    2005 Vibe, headlight bulbs out until I rap on the side the headlight and then they come back on, I have to do this to each one individually.


    the connector is loose or faulty. to gain access to the connector, there wiil be a locking ring or a rubber cover on the back of the light assembly in the engine compartment.

    turn the locking ring ccw, take the socket out being carefull not to touch the glass bulb with your fingers. oil from your skin will create a hot spot on the glass and could break the glass when on because of the intense heat generated. remove and replace the bulb a few times to clean any surface corrosion. this action will also reseat the lamp.

    if there is a rubber weather cover, there's a chance that there is a wire gate holding the bulb in place. squeeze the wires together to clear the latch clip on the unhinged end. then do the above procedure.
