SOURCE: change head light

You should be able to reach under the hood into the headlight assembly and grab the bulbs and twist them off if not then you have to take off your entire headlight assembly then take the bulbs out.

SOURCE: head light bulb replacement 2003 chevy trailblazer

Simple! (I have the same model as well) Pop off the front chevy grill - it's held on with spring clips. Then look at the headlight assembly - there are 2 slide clips on either side, near the top - they have a tab that is bent forward - lift them UP. It may take a little force as they are usually stiff. The headlight assembly can then be pulled off the car, and the bulbs replaced.

SOURCE: headlights (low beams) and brake lights keep burning out.

Hi, it sounds like their is a bad earth somewhere causing it to short out this can be difficult to find as it would involve removing the lights and checking all the earth wires.
But first make sure the correct fuse is fitted because if someone has changed the fuse and put one on with the wrong amp then this would keep blowing.
If you look in the fuse box it should give you a diagramme of fuse location and the correct type check this first as this is something that would cost next to nothing to repair.
If the fuse are good then get the garage to check all connectors and earth wires.
Hope this is some help to you let me know if you need further assistance

SOURCE: replace low beam head lights on buick allure

Open hood, look on top of head light assm, you will see a bolt or screw, these hold assm in. remove, and pull out assm. Turn lock collar, remove old bulb, install new, BUT DO NOT TOUCH GLASS END OF BULB WITH YOU HAND, the oil from your skin will make the bulb explode when it is heated.

I have a 1992 mercury capri and was wondering my battery is over charging my dash volt indicator needle is on hight and I have all my lights are working all fuses are good not blown except my low beams I...

Voltage regulator inside the alternator is probably stuck closed. It is unlikely that the low beams not working is connected to that problem. mostly the low beam bulds are burnt out or something is wrong with the wiring or the dimmer switch.

Only one head light works at a time, diferent light in all positions

Most likely the high beam filament is burnt out on your left light, and the low beam filament is burnt out on your right light. My first recommendation would be to purchase a couple of headlamp bulbs, install them and see how they work, then post back if you are still having an issue

My low beams went out on 1983 pu but i still have high beams, battery was boiling, just replaced voltage regulator

Was it a medium sized wire? If so yes put it back on the battery because this is the charging wire for the battery. The low beams may be simple, they may have burnt out when the voltage reg. failed. low beams were on the most giving them the most over voltage causing early dimise

Head lamps are burning out one at a time,first low beams then then high beams ending on the left side,smells of burning plastic inside the vehicle.

check voltage of battery while vehicle is running if over 14 volts replace voltage regulator high voltage would cause this problem

What is the DRL warning light on the dashboard of my 2007 Honda CRV?

On my 2007 Honda CR-V The DRL code appeared on the dash board. Additionally I had only one high beam (on the passenger side); both low beams were fine, but I did not have a Daytime Running Light on the drivers side. The DRL code was really misleading because the real problem was that the high beam element in the headlight bulb was burned out. Note that the daytime running light is not a seperate bulb -- it is the high beam element which is powered at a low voltage. Once I replaced the head light bulb everything worked fine and the DRL code on the dash board was gone. So if the DRL message appears what you really need to do is replace the headlight bulb (there are YouTube videos which show how to do this - but search for headlight replacement, not for DRL fix). Be careful not to touch the new bulb with you hands since premature burnout can occur from the grease off your skin. I got my bulb from Wal-Mart for $8.88 (it's a 9003/HB2 for the 2007 CR-V) -- that's a pretty cheap fix.

Headlight out but new bulb doesn't work

See if moisture is in the lens assy.. If so.. you can drill small holes in the bottom of the light to allow moisture to leak/burn out.. Lemmie know

Low Beams keep burning out! Sometime both sides. I replaced approx. 6 bulbs in the past 3 months. All other lights are working fine. No short indicated. 2002 Toyota RAV4

Hmm, That is rather whacky.

You'll need 2 (two) people, probably, unless you have a Volt-Ohm meter with really long leads.

Attach VOM (20v range DC across low beam circuit (ex: pull the bulb out and push the probes into the low beam slots). Start vehicle. Note voltage. Should be somewhere between 13.5 and 14.4 Volts DC. (If you read neg voltage, you've got the leads reversed!!!). If too high, voltage regulator may be shot.

Have someone rev the engine to, say, 3500 RPM. Measure voltage at that RPM to see if still in nominal (<14.5 VDC) range. This could also indicate faulty voltage regulator.

return everything to normal.

Oh, one other by-the-by: You're not using those HID look-a-like bulbs sold at auto parts stores, are you? They are notoriously cheap and have notoriously short lives.

Good luck.

Start vehicle, turn on low beams. with Volt-Ohm meter (VOM), m

Took the dimmer switch out to check for problems. Quite easy to do, but as soon as I pulled the block connector out of the dimmer switch, I could see a small burn mark on the block connector!! And…the male pins that connect into the block connector were slightly corroded and had some burnt plastic between the pins.

Cleaning and scraping corrosion off of pins and connector solved the problem.

If you are having some low beam light issues, and are uncomfortable with these repairs, let your mechanic know to examine the block connector-to-dimmer switch connections for corrosion if all fuses and relays check out.

Unfortunately, the switch may not be the problem but the connection sure was! It pays to noodle around sometimes.

This also may be the root cause of excessive bulb failures. Our CR-V did not start blowing bulbs till this year, after 4 years of ownership. The dimmer switch is a low current switch that really just turns on the relays for the headlights. Increased resistance in the block connector and pins may have been the root cause all along.
