Wow and I thought bulbs were getting expensive!! Try an aftermarket headlamp assembly. The best bet is to research on line.

Saturn sc1 3 bulbs burnt out at one time after I just replaced both headlight bulb


Hi Legalass, Condensation will be caused by water or moisture entering the head light unit. If the lens is cracked or broken or the cover are not correctly fitted that will answer that part of the question. I think for the second part of the question you should take the vehicle and have the voltage regulator output checked. It is possible that the alternator is being allowed to over charge and when it does, it may be blowing the bulbs! Regards John

I have a Toyota Sienna with factory installed HID headlights (2004). The driver side light will not work and when I took it to the dealer they told me that the headlight computer needed to be replaced. ...


The ECU on my 2004 Sienna passenger HID light went bad due to the condensation in the light, or at least that's what it looked like when I opened it up. The ballast was all corroded. Anyway, I searched and searched online for a way to fix it without paying the dealer $900. I just fixed it today for $92. I got the replacement ballast brand new for $92 shipped from The Retrofit Source at this site: http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?cPath=26&products_id=161
Then I searched for an online manual for 2004 Sienna, found that, and went through the procedure of partially removing the bumper cover, taking the screws for the light fixture out, turning it on it's side and replacing the ballast. It took me about 2 hours to do the whole job, and everything works fine.
By the way, I got the part from The Retrofit Source in about 2-3 days without paying any expedited shipping. They were extremely helpful on the phone, delivered earlier than I expected, and saved me $800!!

Believe it or not you've actually got a fuse for the left and right headlight individually. Check both of these and also You've got a power control center under the hood(drivers side and I "think" another either behind the drivers seat or ucer the dash, and these fuses and relays are often repeated in both power centers(fuse and relay boxes). Grab your owners manual, which now is thicker than the King James bible,and begin your search. Also make sure,if it has one, that the ground from the headlight on that side , is good. Good luck my friend, Dana

Change headlight


1) Left side is in front of the Airbox for the aircleaner. 2) Right side is in front of the battery (which HAS to be removed to replace the bulb).
3) Replacing the BULBS for $10 each is all you normally need to do - Unless the lights are Fogging and getting Condensation in them.
The you have to remove the bumper to repace the headlight assemblies. It is a pain. Costs $300-600 at a dealer.

Passenger side low beam headlight on a 2002 nissan altima


when you got the spark chances are you shorted the receptacle for the bulb on the low side you should check the fuse for this . the drivers side low beam worked before so i would say you blew the fuse. on the passenger side check for broken ,frayed ,or loose wires in the light harness and the plugs them selves chances are you will find a short in them. please rate this solution
