Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

2 Answers

Both low beam head lights won't come on. I've replaced both bulbs this past summer and recently replaced fuses with new ones and they still won't come on. No issues with the high beams, just the low beams won't come on.

    see if you can find a HDLP relay in the engine compartment relay box and swap it with the horn relay. If this gets them to come on, buy a relay for the horn.

One thing to try. In addition to fuses headlights use a relay to turn on/off. Usually under the hood, find an electrical box with (usually) square relays units in it. These just plug in. Probably marked HL or similar. If you're carefull and pay attention, you can switch a couple OF SAME VALUE AND CONFIGURATION to see if situation changes. If so, replace the defective relay. If not, you need an expert.

    It could easily be in the steering column headlight switch itself. Best thing to do with this type of problem is to take it to a garage and have someone check the circuit with a tester. It might cost $60. for an hours worth of labor, but they can narrow down where the juice stops, hence the problem.

    As for pczapp and his/her hatred: You have no business owning a computer and having internet access. Stick with cars. Your attitude sucks. Go away.

You only install a new fuse, if the old one blows
Why is it that, something, no one understands
A fuse does not make for a repair,it protects a cuircuit, from a current overload,if you got any headlights,you can forget even checking the fuses. (common sense)
If you got hi beams on both lights,why would you think,both low beams went.

Check out something common,hi/low beam selector switch,may be something else,but surely a good place to start
Unplug one head light and use a volt meter.
Without the ability to understand basic electricity, and use a meter,you may as well leave the hood closed

Low Beams not working


Many of the newer vehicles have bulbs that are removed internally, meaning with the hood up. You cannot touch the replacement bulbs with you fingers as the oils from you fingers will shorten its life. Wear gloves or use tissue. The low beam went because they were hot when you struck the other vehicle, when hot they become more delicate.

The problem is a Headlight module. Fuse box under the hood has two black modules side by side, the one on your right is the headlight module the one on the left is the fan module. Try swapping them, if the headlights work replace bad module, don't drive vehicle with the bad module in the fan slot. Mine kept going bad because I had a high intensity bulb on one side.

2002 gmc safari head light won't work on low beam but will work on high beam


First check, is there more than one headlight bulb, if so, the low beam bulb has failed, needs replacing.

If not you'll probably find that the head light bulb has a double filament, low and high beam. The low beam filament has failed. You have to replace the bulb.

My truck is actually a '95 C1500 but I understand that they were the same model from 88-98. I have 2 problems - both electrical. On a recent trip, I lost both low beam headlights at the same time. ...


There could be a fuse for each low beam light either under the hood or under the dash. If not, then prob both low beams are bad.

If you have daytime run lights, the following may be of help.

There is a daytime running light module that controls both low beams and the daytime running lights. The low beam bulbs may be OK. The high beams will work fine as they are not controlled through the module.

It may be possible to disable the daytime run lights by cutting the yellow wire going into the module and then connecting it to ground. Tape off the other end.


This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Well if all those years your car was working perfectly fine with that blue fuse just get a new 1 and replace it. But then if the lights still don't work check all the wiring in the car that goes to the lights and if there is no problem go to a mechanic and ask him to look at it. That's all i can really help you with i'm sorry i'm not a mechanic yet or i would help you further.
