2006 Pontiac vibe, left side headlights (both) and fog lamps did not come on...replaced the headlight bulb and everything worked normally

Perhaps, but your replacement of a headlight bulb would not have "fixed" the other light outages, unless there is a sensor that can tell it was out and therefore, shuts every other light off until it is fixed. A little more likely is the action of moving things to replace the light temporarily "fixed" a bad connection at or near the bulb socket. If it happens again, you will have a clue to the location. It may also be some effect on the headlight relays.

make sure you seated the lamp correctly and returned the socket to the correct position. Try another bulb (new ones can be bad). Check for broken wire at back of socket.

Headlight socket broken

no year, is it a 1973 Civic?
water there is 100% normal, huge water forces there... at 85mph.?
why not post the symptoms so we can help?
are both lamps dead, left and right????????????
yes, fuses. all fuse in both boxes, they are marked head lights.
most cars , not all have 2 fuse. one for each lamp. so both dont die
together, (big danger that)

if one lamp is dead, use a voltmeter, at the lamp
got 12vdc there, HL switch on, then the lamp is burned out.
measure at the socket, connected.

Headlights not working

Check for loose contacts in the light socket. Also, most vehicles use separate relays for passenger and driver side headlights, so be sure to check those.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy XL and the driver's side front parking and marker lights don't work although the signal light does. Both of the marker lights were blown and one of the prones in the parking lamp...

If you have a test light, you can check for power at the light sockets and connectors. If you have power, you can connect the alligator clip on the test light to the positive side of the battery and test for a faulty ground...Good luck!

The brake lights on my 2001 function correctly only when the headlights are not on. When you put the headlights on the left side does not work. I inspected the left side and found the socket burned....

Unable to access head light bulb

On the back side of the lamp assembly, there is a rotating clip socket that holds the lamp socket in place. Rotate ¼ turn to the left to release.

Subaru intermittent Headlight socket

Had same problem with my 1999 Forester. Jiggled socked for months until I separated it from the lamp and noticed part of the socket had melted and cracked. Checked internet for socket and hoping I wouldn't have to spend big bucks for whole light assembly just to get the socket part. No luck. So called Subaru dealer in Richmond and was told that Subaru doesnt make socket anymore. The good news is they puchase universal standard socket in piggytail form. So for 8 bucks, I got the univeral socket and spliced into existing three wires and works perfectly. The guy at the dealership parts department, which is different from service department, said that they routinely sell the sockets since it is a know problem, of which models not sure. Didnt purchase one for other headlight, if it goes, since guy says they stock the part all of the time. Sounds like something you could get from electical stores, etc. besides Dealership. Hope this helps.
BTW, got screwed on the bad headgaske problems...wasnt under warranty and total near 2500 bucks. Their solution of adding coolant conditioner is a con job.
