SOURCE: Low Beams keep burning out! Sometime both sides.

Hmm, That is rather whacky.

You'll need 2 (two) people, probably, unless you have a Volt-Ohm meter with really long leads.

Attach VOM (20v range DC across low beam circuit (ex: pull the bulb out and push the probes into the low beam slots). Start vehicle. Note voltage. Should be somewhere between 13.5 and 14.4 Volts DC. (If you read neg voltage, you've got the leads reversed!!!). If too high, voltage regulator may be shot.

Have someone rev the engine to, say, 3500 RPM. Measure voltage at that RPM to see if still in nominal (<14.5 VDC) range. This could also indicate faulty voltage regulator.

return everything to normal.

Oh, one other by-the-by: You're not using those HID look-a-like bulbs sold at auto parts stores, are you? They are notoriously cheap and have notoriously short lives.

Good luck.

SOURCE: i need to change low beam bulb how to get old one

Depends on which side you are working on. The easiest way actually involves more steps, in my opinion. On the passenger side, take out the air box to access the 10 mm nut for the entire headlight assembly. Remove the two 10mm bolts on top of the headlight assembly, pull the whole thing out, mindful that the wires are still attached. Remove the cover to the bulb, unclip the wire holding the metal base to the assembly and remove the bulb. Pull on the wire connector to remove from the bulb. The reason this is simpler is because of the wire part that holds the bulb base onto the assembly. With the assembly in place, you can't get a good view of the thing to unhook it or re-hook it.
The driver's side is a bit easier--you only need a deep socket 10mm to remove the nut holding the assembly to the frame or if you don't have a deep socket, remove the fill tube for the winshield washer, then remove the nut. Remove the two bolts holding the assembly on top and continue as with the passenger side. DO NOT TOUCH THE BULB!!! Your fingerprint oils will cause the bulb to fail earlier than it should.

Manual says two low-beam versions, one halogen, one not. How to tell which I need?


Bulbs are usually not interchangeable as the wrong type won't fit. Find the bulb type by removing one of the old ones. replace both of the low beams at the same time. If you buy two of the same variety and they are the right bulb number (H7 is a style of low beam) they are okay to use, Change in pairs so beam color and bulb life are the same.

Head lamp wont work


Try replacing bulbs they could have both gone at the same time,I think it takes a 9006 bulb. You could check by pluging low beam plug into high beam bulb if it works the low beam bulbs are gone

Low beam headlights do not work ..replaced switch and high beam bulb


try the lights with the tilt wheel in the up position. If the low beam works then, a wire has pulled out of the connector on the mutipurpose switch inside the steering column. remove the covers behind the steering wheel on the column and there is a large multi wire plug with many wires. it should be obvious which wire has pulled out or broken.

Low beams do not work but High beams do


Yes you are... but only the bad onemake sure must be carefully when you take out the old bulbs. take this with you to the spare part..ask the store for the same type...and some times you must say to them type and brand of your car.
when you install new bulbs remember don't touch the glass area 'cause can make light not bright...good luck
