One of my driving lights went out after hitting a bump on a dirt road, how do I replace the bulb? It's not the headlight, it's the driving light or fog light.

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work

Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

Head lights flesh off on going down road

This is very common for dodge and chrysler, first check the bulbs sometimes ive seen bad bulbs or connections turn lights on and off, hit a bump and the blown filiment makes contact but the reason i found to be the most common is a bad headlight switch, if the bulbs are good and there are no bad connection then replace the switch.

A quick good test is to turn on the lights and wiggle connections and wires to see if its wiring or not. hope this is helpful good day.

When you hit a bump in the road the headlights go out. sometimes for a day sometimes for longer seems to be an electrical connection.

check the bulb sockets it must be loose thats why when its shaken it looses contact and the electrical supply gets disconnected thats why light goes off/ or check wiring connections that controls your light.

Replacing headlights

headlights are changed from within the engine compartment... if it's the side the battery is on.. it will likely need to be removed first... do not touch the bulbs with your fingers as that shortens their life.

Headlights on suzuki sidekick jx 1994

hitting the top of the light indicates to me that the plug into the light may be bad or loose. also follow the three wires back and make sure they haven't jiggled out of the connectors. within a few inches of the plug there should be male and female connectors again on the wires that may have gotten loose.
