    Lets see if we can help you out here, first I need to be sure of a few things. Is this just one headlight or both sides? The connector mentioned, is this the connector for the headlight(s)? Is the headlight new or have you checked it with a ohm meter to verify it is good?

If the fuses is O.K. check again the relay.I had the same problem in mySAAB 95.The relays/one for left and another for right headlamp/is located in engine compartment behing the battery under a black plastic cover.Check also the relays terminals.

98 cad deville headlights stay on headlight & twilight sentinel switch is off along with the ign. i'm stumped can you help. Ted


Did you check the high/ low beam headlamp relay ? Stuck contacts in side relay .Plus headlamp relay an DRL relay .All are located in the underhood relay center .
The headlamps are controlled by the body control module (PZM). The battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the HDLPS fuse at the switch side of the headlamp relay via CKT 340 (ORN).
Battery positive voltage (B+) is also applied at all times through the RADIO/PHONE fuse to the coil side of the high/low beam headlight relay via CKT 40 (ORN/BLK). Both relays are controlled by the PZM at separate output cavities.

When the headlamp switch is in the HEAD position, the instrument cluster headlamp switch input is grounded through CKT 10 (YEL) and the headlamp switch. The instrument cluster sends a request through the Class 2 serial data line to the BCM in order to active the low beam headlamps. The BCM supplies positive battery voltage (B +) to the coil side of the headlamp relay via CKT 352 (WHT). The coil receives ground through the headlamp switch via CKT 10 (YEL). The coil of the headlamp relay is then energized, closing the switch contacts. Battery positive voltage (B +) is then applied through the high/low beam headlamp relay via CKT 1346 (LT BLU) and the L HDLP LO fuse and R HDLP LO fuse via CKT 12 (TAN) to the left and the right low beam headlamps respectively.
This may sound pretty complex .

My low beam headlights will not come on! My daylight running lights work during the day and I have high beams but at night I have nothing but high beams ???


Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied through the LH underhood fuse block LCM/HDLP circuit breaker via CKT 242 (RED) at all times to the following components:
?€¢
Headlamp switch


?€¢
Lamp control module (LCM)


?€¢
Switch of the RH IP fuse block headlamp relay position J

When the headlamp switch is placed in the ON position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied via CKT 10 (YEL) to the coil of the headlamp relay position J. The coil is permanently grounded to G201 via CKT 1450 (BLK). The coil is energized and the contacts close providing battery positive voltage (B+) to the headlamp dimmer switch via CKT 1346 (LT BLU). When the headlamp dimmer switch is in the LOW position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied via CKT 12 (TAN) to the following components:
?€¢
Left low beam headlamp


?€¢
Right low beam headlamp The LCM provides battery positive voltage (B+) via CKT 1346 (LT BLU) through the headlamp dimmer switch to the headlamps under the following conditions:
?€¢
The ignition switch is in the RUN position.


?€¢
The ambient light sensor indicates darkness.

The lamp control module (LCM) monitors the ambient light conditions through the ambient light sensor. The ambient light sensor is a variable resistor whose resistance changes as the surrounding ambient light level changes. As the ambient light decreases, the resistance of the ambient light sensor increases. The LCM measures the resistance across the ambient light sensor and determines whether it is day or night.

Saab 9.3 1999, high beam and headlight flasher does not work, low beam ok. checked and tested fuses ok.


There are fuses and relays under the hood also. Check to make sure. I have heard of the switch in the lever going bad. Hope this is not it, but since the flashers are also not working. Check www.saabnet.com, could find someone else that has had the same issue.

Driver's side high beam shorted out.


Take a test light or volt meter and unplug electrical connector at high beam light and with key on and headlight switch on (highbeem on) you should have power at dark green and white wire. If not then check 15 amp headlamp fuse. There is one for left and one for right. They are located at underhood fuse block (left fenderwell).Lift cover and look in cover for description. If there is power at headlight green/ wt wire then check for ground at the other wire black and purple.If no ground could have bad headlamp ground relay located at body relay box (left side of dash) or the ground connection for this relay a black wire located at left side of dash.

Headlight main beam not working


Strange headlamp problems on Saabs can often be attributed to a failing Headlamp relay. Here are a few common situations:
Issue1 - Headlamp switch will work backwards: Turn on the switch and theheadlights go off and turn off the switch and the headlights will goon.
Issue 2 - High beams will disappear. You will have nohighbeams. Be sure to check the headlight bulbs PRIOR to ordering therelay. Remember however that it is possible for both high beams burn out at the same time
Issue3 - High beams will not work only the low beams will.
Issue 4 - A single bulb setting (low or high) on either side will not work and bulb replacement will fix it.
You can sometimesfix these issues by removing the relay, taking off the cover andresoldering the connections on the relay bottom. To perform this repair, go to my illustrated tutorial at customsaab.com.
In some cases youwill have to replace the relay to effect a long term cure. The aftermarket replacement can be had at Eeuroparts.com for about $60.00:

Front light not working


replace the headlamp bulb. I just had to replace both the headlamp bulbs in an '05 model. Neither low beam was working. You'll have to pull the whole headlamp assembly out, but they tell you exactly how to do it in the owner's manual. Hope this helps.

Headlights not working


It sounds to me like you might have a loose headlight connector, or something is causing the conduit inside the headlight to shatter, if you take the car to work every day do you go over a big bump at all? also what brand are you using and what does Hyundai recommend using, the wrong headlight bulb can also make this happen - just because it fits doesn't mean its right.
