If nothing is wrong, it will take 3 - 4 start up cycles for the ECU recognizing a no fault and it will shut off the check engine light on the dash. It is normal when the ECU senses a sudden voltage drop and call a DTC. So give it time to reset itself.

Why is my Passenger headlamp dim. No other lights affected on right side.


The passenger side is grounding threw the drivers side. When you pull the drivers side light the other looses it ground. It is actually grounded threw the bulb. The reason it is dim. It could be the plug. Find the ground and run a new one to the bulb from the body.

Interesting question. Bulbs do burn out, but premature failure is often caused by overvoltage from the alternator. Have your dealer check the alternator for correct voltage AND waveforms. You can check it yourself with a multimeter. If the battery voltage is more than about 14.5Vdc, eg 15+, the alternator has to be replaced.

Does seem odd,never heard of Subaru having that odd habit.
I would have thought your dealer would have checked but if not have them or someone check the charging system output.

Driver side low beam headlamp out. replaced bulb--no go. checked fuse-fuse ok.


Remove the new lamp

Put a volt meter black lead to the engine
for a good ground or battery grd post

Then turn on the light & probe the lamp socket
one or two wires should read battery volts &
most likely the balck wire is ground & won't drop
any voltage

If good there or compared to other light connector
go after a broken or open ground wire

Pull this circuit breaker till you can find the problem. Check for applicable trouble codes. You have a lighting control module, I can't troubleshoot that component from here.

I have a 2006 ford escape and the passenger head light low beam will not work. Tried replacing the bulb, and check fuses nothing is working.. what else can I try?


Both your low beam and your high beam is protected by the same fuse, so it makes sense that the fuse is OK if the high beam is working on the passenger side. There are 3 fuses for the headlamps. Fuse #13 in the Battery Junction Box (20 Amp). If this fuse is blown, the headlamp relay will not have any power and neither high nor low beam on either side will work (you will have no headlamps at all) Then there is Fuses #2 and #3 (15 Amp) in the Battery Junction Box. #2 goes to the left low and high beam and #3 goes to the right low and high beam.
The headlamp switch uses a SINGLE CIRCUIT to control BOTH sides at the same time, so if one side works, the switch cannot be the problem. The headlamp relay provides power for fuses #2 and #3 and we already ascertained that these fuses must have power since we have working lights on both sides, so the relay cannot be the problem. A replacement bulb has already been tried, so that pretty much leaves us with a bad lamp socket. (Most likely cause) or a bad connection at splice #S122, which is located in the main wiring harness near the breakout for the left headlamp. (RED/BLACK wire)

If the car has "daytime running lights", you'll need a new DRL module. These were a very common problem. They had bad solder joints inside that can cause all kinds of intermittent problems with the lights. It is located up under the dash on the drivers' side.

2005 pacifica w/ HID headlamps driver side doesnt work


From LustyKid.

Check the connector wire for continuity on the low end side with a good OHM meter. You probably have a broken wire connection but can't see it due to insulation. See if you have voltage on the low end side of the plug. No voltage, no light. Probe the wire and find where the current stops. Also make sure you don't have the ground reverse on the plug to the headlight. Before replacing it of course. Or you can cut all the wires and replace with a new connector.
