Question about 1984 Porsche 944

2 Answers

Hello, the right headlight on my 944 will not work any longer though the left functions perfectly on high and low beam settings. Before completely going kaput on the right side it still worked for a while on high beam setting.. making me legal though to the dismay of oncoming drivers at night. I have replaced both headlights, swapped wiring harnesses, traced and sanded/cleaned wiring grounds for both hdlights replaced all headlight related fuses. I hesitate to hotwire the working side to the dead side as this method might go through fuses steadily perhaps.. Please HELP!!??

I have a 2008 chevy Equinox. When the headlights are on normal, the left one works but the right one doesn't. When I switch the high beams on, the right works but the left doesn't. Any suggestions?


Head lights are a two stage bulb. One filiment for low beam. One filiment for high beam. The low beam filiment is burnt out . a new set of headlight bulbs will fix you up.

Replaced the headlights and it seems as though the high beams are not working right. They are on but not right, when you turn on the bright lights should both the low and high beam bulls be on?


Depends on model, most of GM products now have seperate beams for low and high, and some high beams require a different headlight for proper brightness.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

The low beam lights do not work I have tried a new bulb and replacing the fuses. the high beam lights do work


You may have to check a few items here. Do the high beam lights only work when you "flash" from the combination stalk or do they work when you have headlight switch turned on and then select high beam from stalk..? You may also want to check out the headlight relay. If this is OK, you might have a headlight switch issue or the combination stalk may be faulty.

One high beam works one doesn't, gauge cluster does not light up


you say you replaced both bulbs, you mean right and left or both the high beam and the low beam on left side?could be a bad ground for the left headlight. there should be some ground wires there near the headlight, LF corner under hood. without a wiring diagram here at home,I am not much help.
