Check the connectors inside the bulb holder they can sometimes get bent really slightly , and create bad contact

You may have a fuse problem, just try replacing the fuse and try to put on the necessary amperes needed.

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.

My Chrysler 300C left headlight low beam won't light up . I've brought new bulbs and still the left low beam light did not glow! I swapped bulbs around and the left bulb that wasn't working now glowed in...


Check the socket or connections that supply power to the bulb Sometimes the contacts can become corroded. Also, a loose or corroded ground wire can cause a bulb to not work or glow dimly.

Driver's side high beam not working only passenger side bulbs Ok plus front fogs not working 03 renault clio


Could be a fuse ...or it is possible the bulbs are gone.or the wiring loom has been damaged.first place to check is the fusebox.then swap the working bulb into non working side to rule out any wiring faults.if new bulbs keep blowing then it points to a short in wiring or faulty switch which can cause power surges.get back to me if you have a sunroof and water seepage around the courtesy light as clios get this known problem which could be related.

Headlight bulb


Probably an obvious point but did you visually inspect the bulb before fitting? and have you removed and re-checked it. They are very delicate and you must not touch the glass at all. You could swap bulbs from each side to prove the bulb. If the same side still doesn't work you need to start by checking the fuses. You will have a fuse layout in your owners manual and I always suggest testing/checking all fuses regardless. Jon

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    NO LOW BEAM, EVERYTHING CHECKS OK . I HAVE CHECKED ALL BULBS AND FUSES


    Hi,
    The simple answer may be that the low beam side is burnt out. Replace the bulb.
    However, if both headlights have stopped working when switching to low beams, there may be a problem with the relay or the switch itself. If the cost of a relay is low for your car, it may be less expensive to simply replace that component than to have it diagnosed in a repair shop. Replacement of the switch requires some disassembly of the steering column or dash in most vehicles.
    This is how to fix the low beam..
    1.Check your fuses. The plastic panel covering the fuses should have a diagram detailing what each fuse covers. If yours is missing, or unlabeled, check your owner's manual, or a Hanes(tm) or Chilton(tm) repair manual. Often if a headlight is not working, it is the result of a blown fuse. Fuses have a wire running through them that will melt when too much current is run through them. If the fuse is blown, the wire will be broken. If the fuse for the headlight you are working on has an intact wire, it is likely the problem lies elsewhere.
    2.Swap the headlight for its twin. If your left headlight does not work, put the light from your right headlight in its place. If it works with the other headlight in place, your headlight bulb is dead, and needs to be replaced.
    3.If this does not work, try using a voltmeter on the plug for the bad headlight. Turn on the ignition, and turn the headlight switch. If the voltmeter shows no current, then either your switch or the wiring leading to the headlight has gone bad.
    4.If replacing your headlight switch does not solve the problem, then there is a break in the wiring leading to the headlight, and the wiring will need to be replaced.
    Thanks for contacting fixya.com

    Xenon headlight problems


    there are 3 things that make the xenon in your car work the bulb, an ignitor, and a control module, you know your bulbs are ok so thats good, now you will want to swap the control modules they are a metal box attached to the headlight assembly its roughly 4"x4" you will remove the hheadlight assemblys to get to the module, there are 4 8mm bolts and then it pulls out, it the light follows the control module then thats what you will need if not you will need an ignigtor, as far as the flickering that is moet likely the module going bad, the company that makes this system is AL (automotive lighting) there is an SIB from BMW about this that says under a warr claim both control modules are to be replaced and the bulb of the faulty headlight, however i cant count the number of times i have done all that and still have to replace the ignigtor, If it is the Ign that is alot harder to swap as you have to dis assembly the entire light assembly
