Low beam and high beam come off same group of wires, but are separate connections. High beam works fine. Is there a way to check the wire and connection for the low beam.

Hi, if you have a meter to check the bulb, use it to check the wiring to the socket or wiring for power when light switch is turned on. You should have around 12 volts depending on year and type of truck or auto. If the old bulb was burned, you should have power there. When you turn on switch, the other side should work and you will know you have power and it may just be corroded. Check this and you should find the problem. Please keep me posted on this, I will be around to help you. Please rate me kindly if I have been of help to you.
Sincerely,

My 97 dodge neon head lights wont turn on but every other light will fuses look ok Wat is my problem


  1. Turn the light switch off and on several times.
  2. Change from high beam to low beam several times.
  3. Use a multi-meter to check for power to the plug that the bulbs connect to. Sometimes there are components other than fuses than can malfunction and stop the flow of electricity.
  4. Change one of the bulbs for a new one. There is a possibility that both headlights are burned out.
Sometimes, the high/low beam switch gets "stuck" between the two settings and the headlights will not come on at all.

02 Buick century the passenger low headlight not working but high beam is. I checked fuses inside the car what others things can I check.


There should be a left and right fuse and a relay involved.
The lights get power from the fuses, and the headlight switch and dimmer switch provide the ground circuit. So if you check the headlight plug with a meter you should have power and ground for high and low beam.

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.

No power to right side (PS) headlight low beam plug socket, new bulb, fuse is good. High beam works, blinker works, park light works. just no low beam and doesn't register any voltage on volt meter.


check low beam fuse when switched on if it has voltage registering across the fuse ,if there is voltage across the low beam RHS fuse then it is possibly a pinched wire from the headlight running back towards inside of the car

Low beams not working


One item to check quickly is the low beam relay to see if it is working. You can swap it out with a new one or take one from another position in the electrical box to test it. The chance that both headlight low beam bulbs have burned out is remote but worth checking. You can test with a volt/ohm meter. If the pin has voltage and the light does not come on it is burned out. The other thing that can cause this is the high low beam switch being broken. Good luck

Headlight out again


Buy a two pack of the low beam bulbs and change both had lights. the voltage drop will burn one out since they have different resistance.

The low-beam headlights don't work. The fuses are fine as I replaced them with those of the high-beams and the high-beams worked. Other than both bulbs burning out at the same time what else could be...


Possibly the bulbs. Take a look at them; they have 2 coils per bulb, one for the low beam and one for the high beam. So it is possible that the more used low beam burns out before the lesser used high beam.

2007 buick allure headlights will not turn on parking lights work,high beams work. no low beams or daytime running lights


As you described the problem the solution is to replace the headlight bulbs, they have two elements one for normal lighting or low beam and one for high beams. the elements for the low beams are continuously used and are subject to burn sooner.
