If it keeps blowing fuses that could be a problem. Just one, I wouldn't worry. Goodluck

Why both front lights went off


Off the top of my head I can think of the fuse for the headlights. Also check the relay for the headlights. Also it would be unusual but could be both bulbs went out.

The fuse for the left headlight keeps blowing every time i turn the headlight on .I already replaced the switch,checked for cracked wires or bare and still get the same result


Obviously there is a short to ground or a major draw.
You should be able to use a meter to check resistance in the circuit between the light and the fuse.
You said "switch" so have you checked the headlight switch and dimmer switch too ? And does the fuse blow if the headlight bulb is unplugged ?

2001 CHEVY CAVALIER HEADLIGHTS AND WIPERS DONT COME ON. SWITCH ALREADY REPLACED. I PULL FUSE FOR PCM AND HEADLIGHTS COME ON CAN IT BE THE FUSE BLOCK WHICH IS LOCATED IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT. NEW FUSE...


This sounds like anelectrical short, check the wiring both under the hood and under the dash for burnt of frayed wiring, bare or cut wires, possibly even electrical tape. A haynes manual may came in handy and can be picked up at you local parts store.

My lights for a ford escape 2001 wont work


check under the hood for black box,lift the cover off of black box,marked" main fuse and relay boxfuse positions should be marked on underside of the lid to main fuse panel box,that you have just removed.check for a blown headlamp fuse in that box. it's either a blown fuse in that box,or if only one headlights "out" it will be a blown bulb(headlight bulb) it's very unusual for both headlight bulbs to blow at once. so in saying that,look for a blown headlight fuse. thank you for choosing fixya.com.

2001 grand caravan low beam light not working. i chang bulb already i check fuse already.


Hi Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch.
Thanks for using Fixya.

My 98 buick regal headlights quit working. They worked sporadically for awhile, but now not at all. checked fuses already. The high beams are fine.


More than likely your headlight switch needs to be replaced. The switch (lever to flip between Hi/Lo beams) are made of plastic and after many miles they wear out.

My required matenance light came on in my 2007 scion tc is this a very serious problem


Make sure the car is in "off" position.
Press and hold the odometer button.
While pressing the button switch the starter to 'on' position.
You will see 5 lines appearing on the odometer display. The lines will vanish one by one.
Release the odometer button.
Light will be off!!!!!

(Note: each line on the odometer display represents1000 miles. I5 lines mean 5000 miles, meaning that the light will be turning on after 5000 miles. To reduce the mileage to, lets say 3000 miles, realease the odometer button if 2 lines are vanisahed)

Low beams for chevy 2006 trailblazer are out is it the fuse or bulbs


check both. fuse is easier to check so check them first and if they are good check the bubs next. check for power and ground at the connector to the bulb.

I have a 97 jeep wrangler. the headlights wont turn on. all other light work fine. the fuse is also fine


Try a couple things if you haven't tried already.

First try replacing the bulbs (sometimes the most obvious answer is the right one, and not meant to offend you).

Then, try replacing the headlight relay (found in the fuse box and looks like a small black cube that plugs in similar to a fuse with some extra prongs).

Then, try replacing the headlight switch.

Finally, while inspecting the headlight switch, make sure the wires are connected and not broken, worn out, or corroded. Same thing with the wires connecting the headlights.

Let me know if this helped you out.
