This car has a high output lamp system. Start by checking all your fuses. This system works like a florescent light and has a ballast that fails,troubleshooting these systems requires knowledge of high voltage systems. You may be better served taking it to a Jag. knowledgeable professional. In this case it may save you money and injury.

Headlamp loose on drivers side. seems to go in and out when driving. the light still works but is very dim. Have plugged the wires in, but they loosen right away. Is it the headlamp bulb or assembly. This...


If it is the light bulb, meaning the replaceable glass bulb that gets plugged by the wire connector, the clip may not be properly seated on the housing of the bulb. Take the time to match up the tangs of the bulb housing to the hole it plugs in to.

Daytime Running Lamps
The daytime running lamp (DRL) system is designed to turn the high beam headlamps on, with a reduced light output, and without illuminating the high beam indicator lamp in the instrument panel. You have a DRL Module.
The multifunction switch is the stalk on your column.

This is 96 F150 circuit. Don't have 94.

Replacing a headlight bulb, low beam, in a 2004 Chevi Trailblazer


Step1
Your first stop should be to your local auto parts shop to get the bulbs you need. You'll need to pick up #9006 bulb, this one has a gray bas and is used for replacing the outside high beam. If you are looking to replace your inner low beams you'll need to pick up #9005 which has a black base. The bulbs should run you about $16.00 USD.
Step2
Alright once you have your bulb and are ready to replace it make sure you have popped the hood the release lever is on the inside of your vehicle.
Step3
While facing your car with the hood open, your going to remove the grill by pushing down on the two retainer clips which are on the top of the grill. You'll need a flathead screwdriver to help you with the rest of the retainer clips. There are two on the bottom ends of your grill one in the center and 2 on each side. Now you'll just pull up on the grill and it should come out easily.
Step4
On each side of the headlamp you should see a One inch long tab, when you pull up on the tabs it will release the headlamp so that you may pull the headlamp toward you. Pull the head lamp out.
Step5

There will be two round rubber caps at the rear of the headlamp. Remove the caps and then pull out the wire harness from the bulb.
Replace the bulb or bulbs and remember that #9006 has the gray base and is for the high beam and #9005 is for the low beam and has the black base. Reconnect the wire harness and replace everything to its original position and now you have a fixed headlamp! Congratulations!
