Make sure there is a good lamp,,check the voltage to the lamp,see if it has voltage there at the plug in,if it has voltage resecure the ground on the plug,trace the voltage problem ,if it has none ,it should join the othere headlamp.look in the relay box,for the head lamp relays,there will be a left,and a right.

Headlight low beam r side no power high beam works fine


Sounds like the low beam element in the right side is burned out. The auto parts store should be able to verify that and sell you a new bulb.

The first thing is to make sure the bulbs are good, if the low beam bulbs are bad the high beams will still work, the first thing is to try new bulbs.Replace the bulbs and then let me know the results.Good day.

1997 ford explorer dirver side low beam does not work?


There are two elements in every modern headlight bulb. Either the filament for the low beam has burned out, or you have an open in the wire leading to it from the headlight relay. With the low beam on, test for voltage at that wire. The other option is to switch the bulb out with the other side and see if it works. If it does, then it's just the bulb. If not, you either lost a ground, or the relay is malfunctioning. Check for loose wires, if none, look at replacing the relay.

Driver side headlight went out in 1996 ford explorer changed bulb still no light but i do have high beam I have the same problem with my 1997. I've had some people look at it and nobody can figure out the...


the problem is in the bulb when you replace the bulb and you touch it with your hand be sure to wipe the bulb off before installing it in the headlight assembly because it the sweat on your hand that can blow the low beam also make sure the socket is clean and just a little grease is in it
