The fog lights should be on a different circuit then the headlights so that's not conclusive as to whether the fuse is good. I assume both headlights are out? Locate the fuse block and look for a fuse labeled hdlmp or similar. If you have a test light, use it to determine you have power on both sides of the fuse with the key on, you may have to turn the headlight switch on as well. If you have power on only one side of the fuse, the fuse is blown and replacing it should get your lights working. However it may blow again as there might be a short. If you have power on neither side of the fuse then there is a problem with the headlight switch, fuse block, ignition switch or wiring. Let us know what you find with the fuse.

Have you checked the fuse box for any blown fuses? If they're all good then you must have a loose wiring harness somewhere.

Headlight problem on 1994 XJ6 Jaguar


if your car is the xj40 model the lighiting logic module is under the fascia close to the lighting switch but i think the problem is more likely to be a earth problem or simply the bulbs the twin headlamp car has one twin filament bulb on the outer and one single on the inner so if both main beam filaments fail thats what will happen

Saturn sc1 3 bulbs burnt out at one time after I just replaced both headlight bulb


Hi Legalass, Condensation will be caused by water or moisture entering the head light unit. If the lens is cracked or broken or the cover are not correctly fitted that will answer that part of the question. I think for the second part of the question you should take the vehicle and have the voltage regulator output checked. It is possible that the alternator is being allowed to over charge and when it does, it may be blowing the bulbs! Regards John

The headlights were working fine. Then a socket melted. I replaced it. Now the light is dim. Much dimmer than the other. I tried 3 bulbs all with the same result. I tracked the wires as far as I could....


bad or missing ground on the side which is dim. there is a wire from the socket or the harness which connects to vehicle ground close to the headlight. find that connection, clean it and reconnect it.

I have a chevy s10 2002,the headlights do not turn on, the high beam works fine, bulbs are fine. thanks for help


If it's not the bulbs, be sure to check them, might be dual filament and the high beam wire is fine but the headlight one is shot, one bad wire would cause both headlights not to work.
Hopefully that's the problem, if not, it could be blown fuse/short in the wire. Try checking power/ground at the bulb to reduce the possible problems. If it has both with the headlights "on" then it's the bulb, if it's missing one then follow the wire for any irregularities.
They sometimes pass the wires under the flooring right near the drivers feet, which is a perfect place for water/salt to seep in and corrode wires.

There are a couple of thing that cause the bulbs to fail, on e and very common is to touch the glass part of them, the oils in the skin will cause the glass to shatter, the other and most common is moisture getting into the headlight, this is easy to detect, the inside of the headlight lens will be fogged out or you will see water inside, ever had water touch hot glass? it shatters, this is caused by leaks in the electric weld seam, the only fiz is to replace the headlight lens assemblies. You can buy these in the after market fairly cheap from Partstrain.com, I have used there parts and they are very good quality.

Headlights don twork


the daytime running lamps are the high beam bulbs connected in a series which puts a lower voltage to them causing them to appear dimmer. if your low beams are not working i'd start by checking the bulbs to make sure they're not just burnt out. then check the fuses. if that doesnt work let me know and i'll help you trouble shoot it further
