Sounds like you have a high resistance in the wiring or a connector check the earth first. provide a seperate earth to the bulb holder earth terminal with a piece of wire which will help find the side of the circuit that is at fault

2004 dodge Dakota right low beam not working I get 12 vts but when I connect bulb its 0. please help


Check the resistance of the wire to the plug pin. Probe back the wire a few inches. Also check for a good ground. I repair or replace any wire with over 5.0 ohms.

My '93 lexus headlights won't turn on. if I hold the switch to "flash" the high beams, the lights are on, but just to drive at night or during the rain, nothing lights.


Go to your local auto parts store and buy some new ones. They will help you put them in. It sounds like you lost the low beams. When the low beams go out the high beams will still work. It just sounds to me like the bulbs are out. if not they shouldn't charge you for the bulbs.

Right side headlights not working


You need to first establish that you have current to the headlight in question. With it being so flaky in how it is working I would bet that your connector is bad at the light. Grab a meter and see if you are getting your 12 volts to the connection. Cleaning it out may help you for a while.

Did you check the ground wire for that light? Using your voltmeter, put the positive probe on the battery terminal and your negative lead to the pin/socket that provides ground for the lamp. If you are reading 0 volts, you need to check the ground wire for proper grounding.

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.

High beam headlights quit working. Bulbs are OK.


If your getting power at the headlight wire harness, then it's going to be the bulb it self, but make sure your checking the right 12 volt terminal at the plug. There should be three terminals there, there is a ground, 12 volt low beam, and a 12 volt high beam. If both the low and high 12 volts are getting power, then it's going to be the head light bulb it self that has reached the end of it's life time since the day time running lights are always on which is the high beams. Good luck and check the fuse box under the hood by the battery.

Right headlamp doesn't work on low beam only


in this case make sure you have voltage going to the low beam lights. 12 volts. you need a volt meter. if you do not have volatge you have to check and make sure power is going through the fuse. a bad fuse will be broke, but you can have a good fuse with no power going through it. if you have power going through the fuse you have a wiring open somewhere between fuse and whatever is between the headlight connecter.

plz check and get back i will keep checking on here on and off.
