I was changing my headlights on my nissan altima 2005 2.5 s and while changing them the low beam on my driver side stopped working can you help?


It could be the wire just before the headlight plug, or as it is sometimes referred to, the pigtail. I just had one go on my camry after changing the bulb. If you have a multimeter, you can check for voltage at the plug with the headlight switch on. If there is no voltage there while the other lights are all working, this may be your issue. These can be purchased at auto parts stores. Just need to know what type of bulb it is for. It includes the plug with wires and you just need to cut off your old plug and splice in new one with wire
connectors.

Okay.. so i have a 1993 Nissan Quest that the high side on the bulbs keep getting to where they dont work.. to make it more specific i have having headlight problems and when i turn the bright lights on.....


You really need to verify a good clean ground for each headlight - it is possible you have corrosion either on the end connections or in the middle of the wire. It may be a good idea to just replace each ground wire for the respective light. Splice into the existing ground and run it to a new location, ensuring there is no paint or rust in your connection and putting dielectric greaseon the wire end,terminal, and underside of the head of your fastener. The cut the old wire so that fault cannot cause issues with your new ground. Don't wrap your new wire around a bolt - use the proper gauge eyelet terminal. If you use a pre - existing ground ( like on the alternator bracket ) wire brush the bolt head underside and mounting area clean along with whatever eyelet terminal there, grease all sides using fresh dielectric grease and tighten bolt securely.
This should cure your problem - if not, then test ( and replace if necessary ) whatever headlight relay (s ) you have - they may overheat and short out, causing a power surge that would blow the bulb.
Good luck!!

Marker lights do not work. 1994 nissan pickup SE


I would start by checking all the fuses, then check the headlight switch,test it for power as you did the tail light, then check the wiring coming out of the cab down the frame to the rear of bed check for a short but if all fuses are good then will not be a short, may be a bad switch and the most important is the bulbs, make sure they are good.

Passenger side low beam headlight on a 2002 nissan altima


when you got the spark chances are you shorted the receptacle for the bulb on the low side you should check the fuse for this . the drivers side low beam worked before so i would say you blew the fuse. on the passenger side check for broken ,frayed ,or loose wires in the light harness and the plugs them selves chances are you will find a short in them. please rate this solution
