Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

The left high bean bulb blew. I replaced it.

The left high bean bulb blew. I replaced it. Then the left side headlight would stil not work. I repalced the low beam bulb. I did not touch either bulb with my bare fingers. It still did not work. I checked the fuse and it was alright. It has voltage in the harness where the bulbs go. Not sure what else it could be.

Left headlight replaced but still not working, swapped with right bulb so bulb is good


If you checked for power inside the socket(power and ground) the bend the tabs in the socket to touch the bulb wires. They get hot and bend. pull them out a bit.

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.

If both my regular headlight bulb and high beam head light bulb on a 2009 VW Jetta are both burned out and I only replace the regular bulb and not the high beam, should the regular highlight bulb stil


no --there are two separate light power systems for the bulbs but a shared earth wire. Bulbs blow from power fluctuations that occur from loose earth wires, dirty earth points so check the way the bulbs are put back in and ensure that they are tight.

My 2007 headlights wont turn on


It is hard to say without checking your headlamp electrical circuits, but it sounds like you may have possibly installed the wrong bulb or installed it incorrectly and possibly blew a fuse.

Headlights don't turn on when the switch is pulled out, but park lights and high beams work


Replace the switch it is most likely bad or both headlights blew out which is unlikely, will the headlight work on high beem, check for 12 volts at the plug that goes to the headlight bulbs if voltage is present at both headlights the bulbs are probably blown.

One high beam works one doesn't, gauge cluster does not light up


you say you replaced both bulbs, you mean right and left or both the high beam and the low beam on left side?could be a bad ground for the left headlight. there should be some ground wires there near the headlight, LF corner under hood. without a wiring diagram here at home,I am not much help.

High beam headlights quit working. Bulbs are OK.


If your getting power at the headlight wire harness, then it's going to be the bulb it self, but make sure your checking the right 12 volt terminal at the plug. There should be three terminals there, there is a ground, 12 volt low beam, and a 12 volt high beam. If both the low and high 12 volts are getting power, then it's going to be the head light bulb it self that has reached the end of it's life time since the day time running lights are always on which is the high beams. Good luck and check the fuse box under the hood by the battery.

Volvo S40 Low beam headlight


Sounds like a wire to me. It's definitely not fuses (unless the fuses have been split for left and right hand side which I have never come across, but we are talking about volvo lol) so I'd say most likely there'd be a break somewhere in the harness. The driver's side probably blew as all the power gets sent to one side when one bulb isn't working - so it's working twice as hard usually - making it more susceptable to blowing.
