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.

My headlights both went out while driving at the same time. Is this a headlight fuse issue?


REPLACE THE HEADLAMP DIMMER SWITCH IF THE HIGH BEAMS WORKS ONLY. IF ALL NOT WORKING YOU HAVE A FAULTY HEADLAMP SWITCH THE FILAMENTS IN THE HEADLIGHTS ARE THE FUSE. THEY BURN OUT WHEN THE TUNGSTEN ELEMENT GIVES OUT

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.
