This sure sounds like a wiring problem. You will need to check the wire continuity. A wiring and location diagram will help you find the other end of the wire so you can check its continuity.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Problem with driver's side headlight; lowbeam works fine under daytime running. When I flip up for night time driving, the driver's side headlight goes out. Dying bulb or....?

The day time running lamps are the high beam lamps , just going through the DRL resistor . Your low beam bulb could be bad (open) . Check voltage with DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , there should be three wires at the headlamp socket , check the orange wire for battery voltage with low beams on .

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)

I have a 2011 Hyundai Elantra . I am going to Canada and have to install a DRL. I have a Grote 44040 Module,but the instructions for my car are not clear - can you help?

Okay, this is pretty simple. There are three wires:
1. Pink - Goes to your ignition circuit - provides power to the module when the ignition switch is in the ON position this wire should also have an inline fuse .
2. Yellow - this one goes to the headlamp low-beam circuit on your vehicle - provides power to the healamps any time the ignition switch is on and the headlamp switch is off.
3. Blue - this one goes to your park/marker lamp circuit - signals the module that the headlamp switch has been turned on and cuts power from the yellow wire so headlamps can operate normally.

Your car should work very well with this:
Go to the engine compartment fuse and relay box. Here you will find fuses for the low beam headlamps and the high beam headlamps. There are fuses for the left and right sides. Don't worry about whether you are working with the left or the right, because both of these fuses get their power from the low beam relay - it splits beyween left and right after the relay. If you power one of these fuses, you will power them both. The yellow wire can connect either to the fuse itself (with a fuse tap) or you can splice into the low beam headlamp wiring as it comes out of the fuse block. Where the ER FRONT harness plugs in to the fuse block the headlamp circuits are GREEN for the high beam and YELLOW for the low beam. Look for Pins 16 and 17. (These will be the easiest to identify because they are right next to each other) Pin 16 should be GREEN and Pin 17 will be YELLOW. The YELLOW wire from the DRL module connects to the YELLOW wire at Pin 17.

Next is the PINK wire on the DRL. On the same connector (ER FRONT) at the fuse block, Pin #11 should have two wires: a RED/BLACK wire and a PINK wire. Splice the PINK wire from the DRL to the PINK wire that comes out of this connector. - this wire is only hot with the key in the ON position.

The BLUE wire on the DRL wil have to connect to either the left or right side marker lamp circuit. The easiest place to do this would be at the headlamp assembly. The marker circuits will be a GREEN/ORANGE wire at the left headlamp assembly, or you can go to the PINK wire at the right headlamp assembly. (The left side would probably be the easiest.) It is important to hook to one of these wires and not one of the turn signal or headlamp circuits. It will not function properly if you do this.
If you hook to a headlamp circuit, it won't work at all and if you hook to the turn signal it will cause your headlamps to flash off every time the turn signal flashes on.

Turn the ignition switch on, and you should have DRL headlamps. Check the function of all of your lights after installation, including the high- beams and turn signal - just to make sure it is wired correctly.

Low beams dont work, checked fuses and lights. is there a relay in engine compartment and where at.

No Relays. did you check the bulb to make sure they are not burnt out ?

Use a meter to check for power on the low beam at the bulb connector.
Left is the Dark Blue w/ White stripe wire, right is the Dark Green w/ orange stripe wire.

The fuses are #23 & #25.

Is this with the headlamp switch in the on position, not the autolamp position.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,

Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

First fuse on first row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.20 = F20 (15A) - RH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.
First fuse on second row from left upper corner is Fuse Nr.21 = F21 (15A) - LH headlamp low beam, headlamp adjustment.

F 150 Head light issue

You know the fuse for the high beams is good ( Cab fuse panel fuse # 16 ) and the pass low beam fuse ( cab fuse panel # 26 ).
Might want to check cab fuse panel fuse #28 ( this is the driver's side low beam ).

If this fuse has power on both sides ( with the low beams on ) next you can pull the headlamps, and check for power at the connectors, but depending when the last bulb change took place, I would say you need need bulbs. ( need at least 1 for the high beam out )
Confirming with a meter at the headlamp would be a good idea, before spending the money.

The bulb connector has 3 pins.
Black wire is ground on both sides
Light Green w/ Black stripe wire is high beams on both sides
Driver Lo = Dark Blue w/ white stripe
Pass Lo = Dark Green w/ Orange stripe.

Right headlamp doesn't work on low beam only

in this case make sure you have voltage going to the low beam lights. 12 volts. you need a volt meter. if you do not have volatge you have to check and make sure power is going through the fuse. a bad fuse will be broke, but you can have a good fuse with no power going through it. if you have power going through the fuse you have a wiring open somewhere between fuse and whatever is between the headlight connecter.

plz check and get back i will keep checking on here on and off.

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.
