Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

My headlights are both out. I was having trouble with them before they went out. The high beams sometimes would turn themselves on and the headlights would turn themselves on when the car was off. I took it to a mechanic and he told me I had after market headlights that have burned the sockets so I'd have to replace the headlights, the sockets and he'd have to rewire the lights. Does this all sound reasonable?

Although it is feasible that the aftermarket lights burnt the sockets, that would not cause the lights to turn on by themselves - a faulty switch would cause that. Inspect the wires that plug into the headlights - if they are not melted or burnt then they don't need replacing. I think you should go elsewhere for a second opinion - just to be sure you got an honest one the first time. Some shops replace everything as a general rule - not because it all needs replacement, but because they make more money on the job. I don't work for a shop like that and feel that is the wrong attitude to have - money is too tight for that!
Hope this helps!!

My headlights went out dont know what the problem is low beam dont work high beams works


it may be the dimmer switch located on the base of the steering colume that is not working on the low beam side.also the headlights themselves may need changing if the low beam filament is burnt out and you didn`t realize one was burnt out then the other one burnt out.if that`s not the case then it could be a bad connection at the plug connector for the low beam or for some reason power is lost between the switch and the headlight.you don`t say if this has day time running lights,if it does then it could be the drl relay that is bad.

The low beam headlight on my 2001 buick regal ls wont turn on, but my high beams do.


It could be the low beam lights have gone bad. It is very possible for only the high beams to work, by themselves. If they won't turn on check fuses.

High beams not working...


More likely to be the high beam relay if it is affecting both headlights.
