What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?

If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

I have a 2003 Saturn Ion 1 and bought the xenon hid 9007/HB5 kit. Hid low beams and halogen high beams no bi-xenon bulbs. The high beams work but lows do not. Neither ballast seems to be getting any power?...

The Saturn ion wasn't meant to have H.I.D.installed in them.
Since you want to install these and blind everyone, check what you grounded the ballast to, you probably don't have them grounded properly.

1992 pontiac grand am headlight problems

Check that you have got the correct bulb for the one you replace . They both look the same but one has a single filiment for high beam only while the other will have 2 filiments for both high and low beam. If you are usin quartz halogen will be H1 the other will be H4

How to replace driverside headlight replacement

I don't know how to replace the headlight replacement, but I can tell you how to replace the bulbs if that is what you want to know. It all depends on if your vehicle is equipped with halogen or xenon bulbs. I am posting instructions for both.

1. Turn the headlamp bulb plastic cap counterclockwise to unlock and remove it
2. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to unlock and remove it (xenon)
3. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the bulb terminals (halogen)
4. Unlock the retaining springs and remove the bulb
5. Release the ignitor and remove from the plastic cap (xenon)
6. Turn the high beam lamp socket counterclockwise to unlock and remove it.
Installation is the reverse order of removal.

I have a 2002 745 Li & the left Xenon low beam is out. I replaced the bulb & the igniter & still nothing. I read about corrosion of the controller I'll try that next. What happens if you touch...

If you do not have greasy hands, but scoured and dry so nothing! But for your BMW E66 can be diagnosed independently by L. and P. xenon to the errors, settings xenon etc. Try to find error in diagnose!

'03 Mini Cooper Xenon Replacement

If it's oem xenon than it should be 2 lamps. Because they had only xenon on the low beam (d2r type), however begin with changing the high beam. That one is inexpensive, so you could check if there are no other problems (like wiring).
Just open your hood and it should be clear how to open the cover for your high beam.

Left zenon low beam flickers and the left front bulb warning indicator is on

Sounds like the power ballast is failing - that's what takes the 12v signal from the car and amplifies it up to a level sufficient for driving the xenon bulb. Swap the ballasts between the headlights (they're easy to dismount) and see if the flicker goes to the other side (swap only the ballasts - leave the bulbs in their existing positions). If the flicker moves to the other side, the ballast is the problem. If it stays on the left side, the bulb needs replacement.

Search online for the bulbs - the dealer will kill you on pricing (the Audi dealership wants $200 each for my A4's xenon bulbs, but I can find them online for about $30 per pair (or less)). You'd want to order a D2S style bulb for an OEM BMW fitment, in 4300k color temperature.

Hi I bought a halogen headlight on ebay for a 2004 nissan 350z that I am fixing. but it won't fit. the plugs don't match the one in the car. what do I have to do.

You may have the wrong part. Cross-reference the part number with the correct part number, which should be located in your owner's manual.

O.e.m xenon conversion

Skip that - it's unnecessarily expensive to use OEM parts. Get an aftermarket HID conversion kit and use that. Mine is from and runs about $71 shipped. It's plug and play - you only need to specify the bulb style you have (H7, H3, 9006, etc) and what color temperature you want. Stay within the range of 4300k to 6000k - go lower than those and the beams are yellow, and above those they're very blue and the output is diminished. I have 6000k in my A4 and prefer it to the OEM 4300k color as it seems to be a richer light. For ultimate output, 4300k is the brightest, but even the 6000k is about three times brighter than a halogen light.
