Low Beam Operation With the lighting switch in 2ND position, the BCM receives input requesting the headlamps to illuminate. This input is communicated to the IPDM E/R across the CAN communication lines. The CPU of the IPDM E/R controls the headlamp low relay coil. When energized, this relay directs power ? through 15A fuse (No. 36, located in the IPDM E/R) ? through IPDM E/R terminal 20 ? to headlamp RH terminal 1, and ? through 15A fuse (No. 45, located in the IPDM E/R) ? through IPDM E/R terminal 30 ? to headlamp LH terminal 1. Ground is supplied ? to headlamp RH terminal 2 ? to headlamp LH terminal 2 ? through grounds E15 and E24. With power and ground supplied, low beam headlamps illuminate.

IPDM E/R - fuse box E/R -- engine room , under hood fuse box .

System Description EKS008LH Control of the headlamp system operation is dependent upon the position of the combination switch (lighting switch). When the lighting switch is placed in the 2ND position, the BCM (body control module) receives input requesting the headlamps (and tail lamps) to illuminate. This input is communicated to the IPDM E/R (intelligent power distribution module engine room) across the CAN communication lines. The CPU (central processing unit) of the IPDM E/R controls the headlamp high and headlamp low relay coils. When energized, these relays direct power to the respective headlamps, which then illuminate. OUTLINE Power is supplied at all times ? to headlamp high relay, located in the IPDM E/R, and ? to headlamp low relay, located in the IPDM E/R, and ? through 50A fusible link (letter f , located in the fuse and fusible link box) ? to BCM terminal 70. With the ignition switch in the ON or START position, power is supplied ? through 10A fuse [No. 1, located in the fuse block (J/B)] ? to BCM terminal 38. With the ignition switch in the ACC or ON position, power is supplied ? through 10A fuse [No. 6, located in the fuse block (J/B)] ? to BCM terminal 11. Ground is supplied

Where is my driver side headlight fuse located for my 2006 altima

There is a fuse for the high beam and a separate fuse for the low beam. Nissan came out with what I call kind of a hidden fuse panel which is located on the right (passenger) side of the vehicle. Nissan calls it an IPDM (intelligent power distribution module). It is located under the coolant resivour (can't spell). In any case below are some pictures and instructions on how to get to and remove it. Also is a picture of the fuse layout that is in there. The fuse for the high beam is the one marked with a red arrow and the fuse for the low is marked with a yellow arrow. If you need a larger picture(s), feel free to email me at with all your information and I will be happy to send it to you. If both high and low beams are out you may be looking at a wiring issue. Hope this helps.....

Where is the fuse located for a 2002 nissan altima drivers side low beam? THANKYOU

There is no fuse for a low beam. If the high beams are working and the low beams aren't then it blew the low beam filament.

Low beam headlight doesn't work after replacing with 3 new ones. Any suggestions?

My 2003 Altima had a similar issue...Long story, short....I located a blown fuse (location 49 & 50) for the low beams in the IPDM E/R and replaced it. The headlight worked right away. My IPDM E/R was under the hood close to the front passenger side head light and coolant bottle.

2004 Nissan Altima passenger side low beam

Just a thought... If with the bulb not burning, you can verify that the voltage supply wire is "hot" and you know the bulb is good, you probably just have a grounding issue. If you can check the ground wire against the hot wire and get voltage, I'd suspect the problem is in the bulb socket or socket connection.
I bet you can figure it out... :o)
Hope this helps... I hate paying big bucks for dealership repairs too. Good luck!

No low beam head lights

If you just want to replace the bulb yourself, this is a good website.
If the website does't get your headlight fixed... You might have a blown fuse. It could be in the IPDM E/R location under the hood. This is next to the coolant bottle. Remove the coolant bottle with two screws and lift the cover to the IPDM E/R. Just set the coolant bottle aside for now. The low beam fuses are 49 and 50. They are 15A fuses. To be more precise, they are located on row 2, columns 2 and 3 (column 1 being closest to the fender of the car). Hope this helps.
