Which Fuse is the Fuse For the Headlights on a 2005 Sonata???

Hi, I am trying to change my first fuse ever...the headlights on my 2005 Sonata went out, my highbeams are still working...they said I should see if it is a fuse, I am looking at the fuse box but I can't figure out the slang for the fuse that controls the headlights...I know it's a 10 fuse...but there are so many of them...Help!!!

Look on the inside of the panel you removed to access the fuses. There should be a diagram with the fuses and what they control. Very similar to a fuse box in a home. Once you see the fuse you think is for the headlights, pull it, then check in the middle. There is a thin piece of wire (here's a picture: http://www.procarcare.com/images/shar/encyclopedia/8852dg22.gif) allowing for a connection to be created. If that piece of metal is separated (it will usually be obvious) you've got the right fuse.

Also, if you're having trouble pulling the fuse, you can pick up a device for a few bucks at any auto parts store that helps dramatically, like this one: http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(cmbea4451fbxwd45styauf45)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=88272

Susanne,

There are two "Fuses" one is a fuse in the fuse block in the drivers compartment. The other is a relay in the fuse block under the hood.

Use your owners manual to locate both.

If these are both working, the problem is probably the light switch you use to turn the lights on. This is expensive and requiores disassembly of the steering column. If there has been a recent shock or heavy twist to the light switch, that is probably it and requires a trip to the repair shop.

Flickering headlights


This can be caused by a bad fuse, or a fuse with corroded or poor contacts, or a faulty headlight switch, or a problem with your wiring. Start with the fuse, then try turning the headlights on and off a few times to see if that helps. Otherwise, into the shop ...

Passanger headlight doesn't work. Brand new lightbulb no luck, fuses are good. what could be the problem


Hi,
Look under the hood for a fuse panel. There should be a diagram on the lid that shows HeadLight Relays. If there is one for the left and right, try swapping them - WITH THE KEY OFF. If that changes the light that works, then either the dealer or an auto parts store should have the relay.

It's also possible the headlight harness is bad - they can overheat and melt. Verify there is no damage to the harness wired from the headlight to the fuse panel under the hood.

If you also lost the light dimmer and highbeams, you may have a short in your wiring, or the 'stalk' on the steering wheel is bad.

2005 suzuki xl-7 - highbeam/headlights won't turn off


This is a fix for this issue. May be related on 1999~2004 Vitaras, but was discovered on my 2000 Tracker.

My headlights came on highbeam while driving, and then my heater blower failed. I pulled the fuses, went to work. Replaced fuses, left work, when clutch peddle depressed, high beams went off, when released, high beams came on again. 10 minutes later, both headlight fuses blew.

What I discovered: With a meter on resistance hooked up between ground and one headlight wire, At some times, I could see 50 Ohms, other times not much, sometimes 500 Ohms. I removed the lower access panel below the steering wheel an started looking. I noticed the wiring harness, above the steering column, looked like it might have been pinched at assembly, onto the assembly that holds the brake/clutch peddle. After much swearing, I managed to remove the hole assembly after disconnecting all the wires going to the clutch switches and brake light switch, and removing 4 nuts, and 3 bolts. After cutting open the plastic harness cover, I found 6 wires melted together right where it was pinched on the right side of the steering column, at the top of the Brake cylinder mounting studs. 20 minutes of butt splicing and using thick special electrical tape, re wrapping the harness, all was normal again! Total time of repair from investigation start to having an assembled running vehicle again, 5.5 hours. Tools used, Socket wrench 10 MM with extensions, 12 mm with extensions, phillips screwdriver, pliers (Removing pivot studs on peddles) Special electrical tape, crimpers, Loom, a cut up rad hose around sharp bits on peddle assy. Special knowledge, non, just remember to disconnect the battery first, and remove the bracket to the right of the steering column holding the auto lock and Daytime running light module (One 10MM nut)!

I saw a load of Tracker owners (1991 and up through 2002) complaining of similar issues online. After looking at my similar mileage Vitara, and my buddies heavily abused off-road Vitara, I did not see the same alignment of the harness so close to the pinch point. Hope this helps anyone with similar issues!

Is there a fuse for the headlight switch. last night the headlights went out the parking lights stayed on no headlights manually or automatically


Yes, there is a fuse for your lights. It is in the fuse box under your hood. It is probably called head lamp

Both headlights stopped working on my 2005 santa fe highbeams work fine where do i begin troubleshooting problems?


First check the 15 amp H/LP (LOW) fuse in the engine compartment relay box. If good, try switching the high beam relay (same box as the fuse) with the low beam relay. If that gets your low beams to work, you need a relay. Please let me know if this doesn't work or if you have any questions.

I have a 2005 Ford Freestar SE Minivan and cannot get high beam headlights to work. Have replaced bulbs, fuses are intact. When I switch to highbeams, the headlights go out completely. Low beams work...


AT FUSE TERMINAL #45 TO THE RIGHT OF THE HIGH BEAM RELAY AS YOU ARE LOOKING INTO THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT FROM THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. THERE IS A 15 AMP FUSE, PULL IT AND SEE IF IT IS BAD. IF IT IS REPLACE IT. THIS IS THE FUSE FOR THE HIGH BEAM RELAY.
