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.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am brights work but ONE low beam is out ...


You most likely need a new low beam headlight BULB.It has the low and high beam in it and the separate high beam has only high.
You SHOULD have 2 tabs ,one at each end to pull up and the headlight assembly should then come out easily.
Tapping a blown out headlight can reattach the filament for a short time but after that replacement is necessary.

High beams not working on mercury marquis


you have a bad wire .....had the same problem with mine.what i did was took out the turn signal /combination switch from the left side of the steering column and put a test light to each of the wires to see which one went on and off when using the high /low beam switch.then followed the same color coded wire down near the bottom of the steering column and spliced a new piece of wire into it.then ran the wire through the firewall (just happened to have one already there above the harness that goes through the firewall).if you need to drill small hole for new wire make sure you feed a half inch of small vacuum hose into the hole before you run the wire through.this will prevent a short from happening.then go under the hood on the driver's side and between the master cylinder and the fender you will see a brown colored plug about 3 inches long and about 1 inch around.tap the new wire into the green wire and then try your high / low beam.it should be working fine.haven't had a problem with mine since.....good luck , DAVE B.

How do I adjust headlight beam on 2002 grand Marquis Mercury and what tools are needed


a screwdriver or a socket

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

Brights work but dims dont changed the bulbs didnt help


You probably installed the wrong bulbs. Although the bulbs you bought may physically fit into place, they may be wired differently. Go to the auto parts store and look up the proper bulbs for your specific vehicle--don't just buy ones on the shelf that look the same. I have a friend who did that and the bulb he got was designed such that they high and low beams were reversed, so he always had one headlight on high and the other on low!
