If your vehicle is a 911 993 variant (not the 996) then you need to open the front boot/luggage compartment - look inside and remove the front carpeting area from the velcro pads on whichever side the affected headlight is.Located to the front of the vehicle on both the left and right hand sides (inside the boot space) is a metal lever that is held in place by a plastic clip - if you rotate this lever it will free your headlight and allow you to remove it from the vehicle (the headlight plug connection is held in place inside the wing by a metal clip so don't worry about this) - you can then unclip the back of the light - change your bulb (H1's I believe) and then refitting is a reversal of removal - simply slide the light back into position until it slots home, the metal lever should rotate round once you do this and then bring the plastic clip back over the metal handle and refit the boot/luggage carpet. Hope that helps.

Headlights wont work on dim, only bright


Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

The low-beam headlights don't work. The fuses are fine as I replaced them with those of the high-beams and the high-beams worked. Other than both bulbs burning out at the same time what else could be...


Possibly the bulbs. Take a look at them; they have 2 coils per bulb, one for the low beam and one for the high beam. So it is possible that the more used low beam burns out before the lesser used high beam.

2003 Kia Sedona replaced low beam bulbs checked fuses still won't work high beams n fog lights work can u help


IF THERE IS NO POWER AT EITHER LOW BEAM LIGHT SOCKET & YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE FUSES, SWAP THE WORKING HIGH BEAM BULBS WITH THE LOW. IF THAT DOESN'T DO IT YOU NEED TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE BEAM SELECT SWITCH, { DIMMER SWITCH } KNOWN AS THE COMBINATION SWITCH, UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL. CAN USUALLY BE DONE WITHOUT PULLING THE STEERING WHEEL. TEST BEFORE BUYING, MAY BE COSTLY. GOOD LUCK , DR.VOLT

When low beam headlight is on passenger sign is


Try this to eliminate new bulbs for both sides:
With a partner behind the wheel:
PULL out the bulbs one at a time. Keep them plugged in. While you are holding the bulb - have your partner click and HOLD the High Beam Selection. This causes the Low Beam and High Beam filaments to both go on and stay on.
Check both sides this way.
While the bulbs are out, look at the filaments that did not illuminate. Are they broken, bent, or have indications they are burnt out?
You can also change to bulbs (left to right, right to left) and recheck using the above method of holding the high beam selector and checking the filaments.

To replace the headlamp, turn signal, or parking lamp bulb:This information should be in your owner's manual.

  1. Remove the fasteners located on the wheel liner. To access the headlamp and the turn signal/parking lamp bulbs.
  2. Reach in behind the wheel well liner and locate the bulb to be changed.
  3. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise and pull it straight out of the lamp assembly.
  4. Pull the old bulb straight out of the bulb socket.
  5. Push the new bulb straight into the bulb socket until it clicks.

Maybe,check them to see if they did,if they did not,there should be a low beam relay,to check,and if it is fine ,replace the dimmer switch.

Dim headlight don't work but bright does and bulbs are ok


Several things on your cavalier could cause this to happen...
If it's just your high-beams, low-beams, or DRL that are out (just one), start with the DRL relay (in the fuse box). If that's not it, and it's not the DRL, try the multi-function switch (the thing attached to the left of your steering wheel, the headlight switch/cruise control switch). If all that checks out ok the next place to look under the hood... there is a pin-out connector/harness under the battery box (located in the front on the driver's side) that may be corroded. It is attached to the underside, and not easy to see without a mirror. If there is corrosion on the battery box, this connector is probably corroded as well...anything that runs off the battery will find it's way to this connector.

Note for anyone else that reads this: Different people will experience similar problems, sometimes with the low-beams, sometimes with the highs, because of different corrosion patterns and the DRLs being run from different bulbs.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please take time to rate me a fixya.
