1999 GMC Envoy w/ same problem - we removed the bumper then had easy access to the ballast (two bolts on top and one on the bottom if I remember correctly). For the bumper, there are two bolts visible on top, then two a bit lower just inside. Remove the 4 bolts then you pull the bumper forward to unlatch and remove it. When you put the bumper back on, insert the lower bolts first - otherwise it\'s a pain to get them back in correctly. For a temp fix we removed the ignigtor/bulb and ballast, took the wires going into the ballast (regular bulb wires) and connected a 9006 bulb. We removed the retainer from the ignigtor to hold the new bulb into place, it took some adjusting to get it set in place but it worked nicely. We will be putting new/aftermarket headlight assemblies in soon, but this fix only cost $25; it was a quick solution that took about 2 hours.

Check the earth connection, sounds like it has lost the earth on the off side and both elements of the bulb are coming on together and halving the power ( causing bad elluimination)

2002 envoy low beam not working. New bulb, same problem. High beam OK on both bulbs and the is fuse OK.


it is really common for the connectors to burn up where they plug into the bulb. Double check the connector. if it looks burnt up replace it. Repair kits are available from your local GM dealer. They will know exactly what you need as this is a common problem.

Replaced the headlights and it seems as though the high beams are not working right. They are on but not right, when you turn on the bright lights should both the low and high beam bulls be on?


Depends on model, most of GM products now have seperate beams for low and high, and some high beams require a different headlight for proper brightness.

My exterior low beam lights won't come on and I have changed them.


Check for voltage at the plug in the back of lights...
If you have voltage, its the bulb.
If you don't have voltage...then check the fuses.
GM has low beam and high beam fuses.

Hope this helps...

Not work my low beam lights but the market light and high lights works on 2004 Envoy


Common problem. Next time your low beams don't work, switch relay #46 with relay #45. If you now have lights, replace the relay.

Low beams went out on 2006 envoy, where and what fuse should I look at


Check the actual bulb. Often one light is burned out, and the driver will not notice it...then the 2nd one goes out...I bet you have a bulb issue and not power to the bulbs. Test it with a test light.
