Ok there are 2 ways todo this ,, the first is the easiest but not the cleanest..

First ..
1.) connect 8 guage wire from postive battery terminal to (2 port fuse holder)..
2.) from each of the fuse in the holder connect to the positive lead of each bulb (which should be in the bulb holder and in the headlamps or fogs or whatever).
3.) connect negative to a bolt on cars body.. Lamps will come on..
4.) remove positive from battery terminal..
5.) connect to your spst switch (what ever kind of switch u are using.)
6.) mount switch inside car,
7.) connect wire from other lead of switch to battery terminal..(pos)
Switch the lamps on and off using the switch..

Second method..

you will need
2 4-pin relays
8 guage wire
tester

1.) remove connectors from both head lamps
2.) turn on head lamps and test to see which is positive on each
3.) bridge this wire to the Com on the relay .. (1 head lamp to 1 relay)
connect positve wire from battery termial to relay (each relay seperate wire)
connect negative wire from cars body to relay (each relay seperate wire)
4.) connect Out from relay to Positive on Halogen bulb
6.) connect negative from bulb to cars body

now the lamps will come on and off with the head lamp switch..

Alternatively you can connect the fuse holder to the battery, and connect a switch to that and then that to the positive in on the relay..

Sorry I dont have any diagrams didnt have the time to draw one,, answered this quickly this morning before work..

All lights work except head lights after I changed turn signal switch


Is your headlight switch on the steering column, or on the dash? If it's the column, you may not have connected them back up good. If on the dash, you could check for a burned "fusible link" right aroun d the battery connections. If that looks alright, and you are sure the bulbs are good, then you might need a new headlight switch. Did they just go out after you changed turn signal switch? Your dimmer switch is on that same switch, I believe. Recheck your connections. Hope this helps.

Need to replace headlight lens on a 1996 dodge avenger


Usually, one has to get the entire headlight assembly to replace the lens.
Is it cracked?
If it is just faded, try some anti-haze polish for headlights. This can save you some money compared to restoring the headlamp by replacing the assembly (which may be available from a salvage yard).

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION
Halogen bulbs contain gas which is under
pressure. Handling the bulbs incorrectly could cause it to shatter into flying
glass fragments. Do NOT leave the light switch ON. Always allow the bulb to cool
before removal. Handle the bulb only by the base; avoid touching the glass
itself. Whenever handling a halogen bulb, ALWAYS follow these precautions:

  • Turn the headlight switch OFF and allow the bulb to cool before
    changing it. Leave the switch OFF until the change is complete.
  • ALWAYS wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
  • Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.
  • DO NOT drop or scratch the bulb.
  • Keep dirt and moisture away from the bulb.
  • Place the used bulb in the new bulb's package and dispose of it properly.

Repalcing the main beam headlight bulb on the 2004 Lexus ES 330


The bulb is held in place by a wire capture that hooks under a small metal hook on bottom of housing. The rubber shroud or boot needs to be pulled off first to expose the bulb and intermittent socket that actually holds the bulb. To remove the bulb push the wire capture (the end that is looped) toward the front of the car and then to the side to disengage the wire from the small hook, be sure to note the position of the plastic socket that the bulb plugs into as it only fits one way.Notice the tab on the bulb base faces up. The bulb does not fit snugly in the headlight socket, it is held in place entirely by the wire catch.

How to replace low beam bulb on 2004 baja


I was able to locate an owners manual for the vehicle. The large plastic weatherguard protecting the headlight bulb connections needs to be rotated CCW about 90 degrees, and removed to provide access to the bulbs. Then remove the center connection for the low beam and release the spring clip retainer to release the low beam bulb. Replace with new bulb and reconnect/reinstall retainer clip, center connector wire, and weatherguard. Note that this is the procedure for the Turbo Baja...non-Turbo model is different.

Replacing headlight bulb


AutoZone.com has lots of information like this. Unfortunately, they want engine size and other information I don't have before providing the information. Here's the link:

Also, check the owner's manual. I changed a headlight in a car last week and was surprised to find that the owner's manual had detailed instructions.
