Check out the following:
It's not easy. You need a flashlight. First, take the batter vent assembly off by removing the screw over the headlamp assembly. Open the battery box by snapping off the tabs, lift out, and move the vent to the side. Second, disconnect the headlight wire by pressing down on the opposing tabs located on the side of the connector and pull straight back. Move the wire to the side. Next, peel the rubber fitting around the bulb (located on the back of the headlamp assembly). Look inside the headlamp assembly with a flashlight to see what you got yourself into. You'll have to unhook the retainer wire that holds the bulb in place. This requires you to push the top part of the wire toward the front of the car and lift up. The wire should swing to the left (passenger side) releasing the bulb and bulb housing. Pull the old bulb out of the housing (it might be tight), replace with the new one (try not to touch the glass). Replace the bulb/housing. Make sure the little tap fits back into its slot (upper diver side). Push the wire clamp back over the bulb, pushing up back and down making sure it's hooked and your done. It seems easy once you've done it.
Good luck! EJ Kudelka

No low beam. Good high beam. No day lights. What's wrong?


No on the fuse . The LH HDLP and RH HDLP fuse in the fuse block - under hood, supply battery positive voltage to both low and high beam lamps at all times. For manual operation, when the headlamp switch is in the ON position, the headlamp switch supplies ground directly to the headlamps and to the body control module (BCM) on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. The BCM uses this signal to determine if the conditions are present to illuminate the daytime running lamps or park lamps.
The headlamps may be turned on 2 different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the ON position, for manual operation. Second, with the headlamp switch placed in the OFF position activating automatic lamp control (ALC).For ALC operation, the BCM receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under low light conditions the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit energizing the headlamp control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground through the headlamp switch to the headlamps and the BCM on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. When the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit it also grounds the park lamp relay control circuit illuminating the park lamps. The headlamp relay is grounded at G203.
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The low beam headlamps operate at reduced intensity when in daytime running lamps (DRL) mode. The ground circuit to the switch side of the DRL relay has a resistor in-line to reduce the intensity of the low beam headlamps for DRL operation. The body control module (BCM) receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under daylight conditions the BCM grounds the DRL relay control circuit energizing the DRL control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground directly to the low beam headlamps and to the BCM on the headlamp low beam signal circuit. The low beam headlamps now illuminate with reduced intensity. The DRL relay is grounded at G203. Any time the headlamps are illuminated the DRL will not illuminate. Manual park lamps do not effect DRL operation.

Headlight low beam on my envoy 2006 not working


The headlamp driver module (HDM) is an electronic module that provides electrical power to the vehicle low beam headlamps. The HDM is controlled by a pulse width modulated (PWM) ground signal from the body control module (BCM). The BCM determines the desired lamp intensity using the ambient light sensor, multifunction switch and the park brake switch as inputs. In general, the HDM will operate in 1 of 3 modes:
?€¢
Reduced Intensity Mode: This mode is used by features that do not require or allow maximum low beam headlamp intensity such as daytime running lights (DRL) (nominal: 85% duty cycle).


?€¢
Full Intensity Mode: This mode is used by features that require full low beam headlamp intensity such as low beam headlamp operation in manual or auto modes (nominal: 100% duty cycle).


?€¢
Off Mode: This is the default mode of the system that will occur when none of the features described above are active. The BCM will deactivate its PWM output (0% duty cycle) during this mode.

The normal battery voltage input to the HDM must be between 6 and 16 volts DC to operate. Any deviation to these values could cause improper operation.
Major components of this system are the BCM, HDM, ambient light sensor, multifunction switch, park brake switch and low beam headlamps.
DTC B2575 Headlamp Control Circuit
When the body control module (BCM) senses a request for headlamp or daytime running lamp (DRL) illumination, the BCM sends a pulse width modulated (PWM) ground signal to the low beam headlamp driver module through the low beam headlamp driver module control circuit. The low beam headlamp driver module will illuminate the headlamps, adjusting the intensity based on the PWM signal received
You best bet is to take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer >

2006 buick allure , automatic low beams do not come on when key starts car


Headlamps
You can use the headlamps two different ways.
?€¢
Place the headlamp switch in the HEAD position for normal operations


?€¢
Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position for automatic lamp control (ALC) operation. During ALC the low beam headlamps are ON for daytime running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions at reduced intensity or low beam headlamps ON at full intensity with exterior park lamps ON in low light conditions. The ambient light sensor is a light-sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes in the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal the BCM turns ON just the low beam headlamps at reduced intensity for the daytime running lamp (DRL) operation. A resistor wire is used (CKT312) to reduced the voltage which reduces the light intensity for the DRL's function. The ambient light sensor can also turn ON the low beam headlamps and the exterior lamps for automatic lamp control (ALC). Any function or condition that turns ON the headlamps will cancel the DRL operation (this means no reduced voltage to the low beam lights). Thirty seconds after you start the engine with the headlamp switch in the OFF position, the DRL will perform one of two actions:
?€¢
Illuminate the low beam headlamps at reduced intensity in daylight conditions


?€¢
Illuminate the low beam headlamps and exterior park lamps for low light conditions

The DRL operates when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the parking brake is not set and the transmission is not in the PARK position When these conditions are met and the DRL ambient light sensor indicates daylight conditions the DRL will illuminate
Should have BCM scanned for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , could have DTC'S stored in memory !
DTC B2645 Ambient Light Circuit
The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.75-4.9 volts, either the DRL will be commanded ON or the ALC will be commanded ON.

Were is headlight low beam relay


It is located in the under hood fuse/relay box . It's non -replaceable ,if bad whole fuse box has to be replaced ! The low beam headlamps may be turned ON in 3 different ways:
?€¢
When the headlamp switch in the HEAD position for normal operations


?€¢
When the headlamp switch is in the AUTO position, for automatic lamp control (ALC)


?€¢
When the headlamp switch is placed in the AUTO position, with the windshield wipers ON in daylight conditions, after a 6 second delay

Battery voltage is applied at all times to the coil and switch sides of the LOW BEAM PCB Relay located in the underhood fuse block. When the headlamp switch is placed in the HEAD position, ground from G202 is applied through headlamps ON switch signal circuit to the body control module (BCM), signaling the headlamps ON request. In response to this signal, the BCM applies ground through the headlamp low beam relay control circuit energizing the low beam relay. With the relay energized, battery voltage is applied through the switch side of the relay, the left and right low beam fuses, and the low beam supply voltage circuits illuminating the low beam headlamps. Ground for the left headlamp is provided at G101 and the right headlamp at G100.
Low Beam Relay Test

  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the C2 harness connector at the underhood fuse block.
  2. Connect a test lamp between the control circuit terminal A5 and B+.
  3. Ignition ON, command the Low Beams ON and OFF with a scan tool. The test lamp should turn ON and OFF when changing between the commanded states.
  4. ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always ON, test the control circuit for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.


    ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always OFF, test the control circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.

  5. If all circuits test normal, replace the underhood fuse block.
  6. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the inoperative low beam headlamp. Test for less than 5.0 ohms between the ground circuit terminal B and ground.
    ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.

    Connect a test lamp between the supply voltage circuit terminal A and ground. Ignition ON, command the Low Beams ON and OFF with a scan tool. The test lamp should turn ON and OFF when changing between the commanded states.
    ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always ON, test the supply voltage circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the underhood fuse block.


    ?‡'
    If the test lamp is always OFF, test the supply voltage circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the underhood fuse block.

    If all circuits test normal, test or replace the low beam headlamp.
