    Thank you, I found the problem, it was in the wiring sleeve behind the light, the previous owner must have had it out and re routed it below and between the forks where it got pinched.

SOURCE: 98 volvo S70 low beam bulb replaced still no light

Easiest way would be to go back to where you bought it and make sure the bulb is installed that you bought....and show them. Ask if you can get a new bulb and change it in front of him. Call the dealership and talk to parts, ask if, indeed the hi and lo are interchangeable.

SOURCE: high beam lights and driving lights don`t work

Hi,
I got my daughter a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire. They are a lot of electrical work.
The problem is the wiring harness which splits and travels under the battery and the windshield washer reservoir. The wires oxidize and fall apart.
The low beams will work but if you turn on the high beams the lights will go completely out, right?
If this is the case I can pretty much guarantee that you will have to remove the battery, the drivers side front inner fender, the air filter housing, the air throat, and the windshield washer reservoir. You will then be able to open the wiring harness feeding the headlights. The wire that feeds your high beams is a pink wire. Test the wires from the harness plug (located just under the battery) to a point as close to the headlight as you can, Use a simple continuity tester. Also feel and bend the wires. If the insulation cracks and you see a green or lite blue powder then patch a new wire in.
All in all I found 4-wires which I replaced. Everything works now.
Good Luck,
Jay

SOURCE: 2006 Honda CRV Passenger both Low & High beams out (bulbs good)

Well I suspect that you may have developed a problem in what's called the Multiplex unit. It's an integral part of the fuse box in Honda CR-V's. It's possible that the cargo trailer caused the problem by causing too much current to be drawn thru the system, I have a similar problem with my 2002 Honda CR-V and have been told I need to replace the multiplex unit and they are quite expensive. You may have to bite the bullet and have it checked by your nearest Honda Dealer.

SOURCE: low beams dont work, only high beams do. 02 tacoma

If there is power there, then it has to be the bulbs. The trouble that most people have is, they don't see how both bulbs could burn out at once... and they're right. They don't. But you see vehicles with one headlight all the time. They don't know it unless you tell them or they happen to see it themselves. Then the second light burns out, and they think it's a major catastrophe, when in fact, it's just bulbs. The high beam still works because the bulb is double filament. The only other thing it can be is the dimmer switch, and since you switched it to high, it appears to be working. However, if it's not bulbs, it still could be the switch.

SOURCE: Low beam headlight will not come on but high beams

I would start at the fuse or relay, typically there is a separate fuse/relay for low and high beams. If that checks out I would look at the light switch, also check to see that there is power at the socket and that the lights are properly grounded.

2002 rendezvous low beams don't work. Fuses and bulbs fine. High beams work. Even swapped relays with high beams still no change. Running lights work but low beams don't in auto or manual. What else can...


What about the rest of the lights. The Auto and Manual function should turn the tail lights also. If they work, then it is a headlight wiring problem. If the tail lights are not working either, then it is the auto control module

BMW 650 Tail Light Problem


If you find that your BMW 650 CS/GS/Dakar tail light doesn’t work at all or flickers when riding, chances are the metal power terminals inside the bulb socket are no longer making a good connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. This is a very common problem with the BMW 650 of all makes, models, and years. Fortunately, there is a very easy fix.
Due to excessive vibration, temperature changes, and replacing light bulbs, the two metal power terminal tabs inside the tail light socket deform and get pushed too far back inside the tail light chassis. This prevents the tail light bulb from making good contact with the power terminals and the smallest vibrations can cause the electric connection to break temporarily or indefinitely.

To fix the problem, all you need to do is pry the two metal power tabs forward just a little so that they make a better connection with the metal bumps on the tail light bulb. If you look at the back of the bike, the red tail light casing on the 650 CS/GS/Dakar is held in place with two screws. If you remove these screws the red tail light casing comes off and you have access to the light bulb inside. At this point, turn the ignition on, but you don’t need to start the bike. Remove the light bulb by pushing in and twisting clockwise about 1/8 turn. If the bulb flickered while removing it, then the bent power terminals are most likely the cause.
Looking at the tail light bulb you should see two metal bumps. These bumps need to make a good connection with the two metal power terminals inside the tail light casing. Turn the ignition off and find a small tool that you can use to pry the power terminals forward just a bit. Make sure the bike is off and you don’t want the power terminals tabs inside the tail light casing to touch.
After you have made the adjustment, turn the ignition back to “on” and re-insert the taillight bulb. If the bulb is lit, then you are done. If it still flickers a bit and doesn’t stay lit, then you will need to continue prying the tabs forward until a good connection is made.

The low-beam headlights don't work. The fuses are fine as I replaced them with those of the high-beams and the high-beams worked. Other than both bulbs burning out at the same time what else could be...


Possibly the bulbs. Take a look at them; they have 2 coils per bulb, one for the low beam and one for the high beam. So it is possible that the more used low beam burns out before the lesser used high beam.

I have a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. Headlight Problem: Year ago? Switched on high beams, complete darkness (low beams don't work at the same time I've come to find out). Solution: Don't turn on...


ok, first ,, check all the bulbs again, and *** make sure that your hands never touch the actual bulb, these lights will turn the oils from your hands into cooking grease when it comes to these bulbs and cause them to blow out much to early on in their life span, , next,, Pull the light switch ( high beam switch towards you for a quick flash of the head light high beams,, if this doesn't make the high beams come on, your problem is going to be in the switch itself ( what your calling the high beam/turn signal lever) before going to that extreme though,, if you have a junk yard near you, go pull one of the relays off a junked vehicle, and stab it into your system one at a time, it could be something as simple as a relay heating up and disconnecting prematurely due to heat ,, if you don't have a junk yard that you can grab a relay,, here is a link that shows how to check them, But its time consuming http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8t25GjZ6i4&NR=1

97 suzuki alto main beam on head lights not working but high beam fine


If there is only one headlight bulb you have to replace the whole bulb. Some cars have a separate high and low beam, some are together. Low beams usually burn out first since they get used more often and unfortunately have to be replaced even if the high beam still works. Hope that is helpful!

High beam problem


Just to clarify, the high beam and low beam bulbs are the same bulb. It is a dual element bulb. If the bulbs and switch are known good, check the high beam relay.
