The bulbs on the outside (normal headlights)have 2 filaments in them ,one for normal headlights and the other for full beam.You have a blown filament in the one that doesn't go .
Swap it with the other side and see what happens.
if the problem moves with the bulb replace it !
hope this helps.

I have a 83 monte carlo and I pull my lights on knob and all my lights come on;tail, tag, park, markers, but not my headlights....my turn signal lever( to turn on my brights) if I pull it the normal...


Don't waste your time looking for a headlamp relay. You will not find one. 1983 Monte Carlo does not use a headlamp relay. Your problem is most likely a defective headlamp dimmer switch. It is located about halfway down the upper left side of the steering column. It is secured by the same screws that mount the ignition switch. It is activated by a metal rod that pushes down on it when you pull back on your turn signal lever. It looks like the picture below.

hi, this is a common problem the only way you can solve this is to get the switched replaced, this is a faulty part on your car so your going to need to get it replaced, once its replaced you will have no problems turning the lights on and off when you need to.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2004 monte carlo has all lights except front main, major headlights...can someone help with this issue??? pls?


check the halogen headlight bulbs and plug in connectors, rarely they both wipe out.... seems more like a headlight switch replacement is in the making, if you know how to test the circuitry with a test light see if you are getting power to the headlight halogen bulbs, these switches do have a reputation of burning out.

2002 Monte Carlo SS headlights won't come on.


Hi: If your sure the Head Lights are Good, Then Open your Hood and Reack inside where your head Lights are on each side and Thee will be a Electric Plug with 3 Terminals on your Plug ,Pull The Head Light Socket of and on a few Times on each side Many Times they build up some Corrosion and are Not Making a Good connection.If this Does'nt Work Check to see if your Rear Tail Lights come on with the Head Light Switch On. ALSO Have your Battery Checked to See if its GOOD and ALL the Connection are Clean and Tight.If this does'nt Help you Might have to Replace your Head Light Swith, Which can be a Pain to Change.ALSO See if your Head Lights Come on When you turn your Bright lights on, If they don't . You'll need to Replace your Head Light Switch .
I Hope this Will Help you to find your Problem and Help you get back to Having Headlights. Please Let Me Know By Voting or By Message that This Has Helped. Thanks: From the WYOCWBOY

My headlights do not turn on. The tail lights work fine


I would recommend finding the fuse and check it first, then find and check the headlight relay, one of these must be faulty. Good luck and Happy New Year!

1. Headlights turn off completely means that the battery terminals need cleaning. Remove cables and clean clamps and posts.
2. Headlights have a noticable dimming means that the starter needs to be replaced.
3. No change in brightness. The headlights stay on, meand the starter solenoid needs replacing.

You need to buy a whole new clicker, same thing happened to me, eventually your bright lights will end up not clicking off or vice versa. and your turn signals will mess up. Get a new clicker, it's the easiest solution, but not the cheap one. mine was like 200$
