I had a problem with bulbs in the 05 Altima I recently traded for my 07 Altima. The lows would stop working shortly after putting in a replacement bulb. You didn't say if you were using Nissan or aftermarket bulbs, but we found out that Nissans can have problems with aftermarket bulbs.

I was putting in Sylvania Silverstars, thinking I was putting in quality bulbs (which they worked just fine in the Taurus I traded for my first Altima. The Altima and those bulbs did not get along. I went through 3 sets (yes, that's 6 bulbs) in 3 months. We spoke with the parts manager at our dealership, whom we have an excellent relationship with, and before we even said what kind of bulbs we were using, he asked if they were Silverstars. Several other customers had had the same experience in different models (trucks, SUVs and cars). We purchased the OEM bulbs, which were the same price as the Silverstars, and never had another problem. Food for thought...

I have a 2006 ford escape and the passenger head light low beam will not work. Tried replacing the bulb, and check fuses nothing is working.. what else can I try?


Both your low beam and your high beam is protected by the same fuse, so it makes sense that the fuse is OK if the high beam is working on the passenger side. There are 3 fuses for the headlamps. Fuse #13 in the Battery Junction Box (20 Amp). If this fuse is blown, the headlamp relay will not have any power and neither high nor low beam on either side will work (you will have no headlamps at all) Then there is Fuses #2 and #3 (15 Amp) in the Battery Junction Box. #2 goes to the left low and high beam and #3 goes to the right low and high beam.
The headlamp switch uses a SINGLE CIRCUIT to control BOTH sides at the same time, so if one side works, the switch cannot be the problem. The headlamp relay provides power for fuses #2 and #3 and we already ascertained that these fuses must have power since we have working lights on both sides, so the relay cannot be the problem. A replacement bulb has already been tried, so that pretty much leaves us with a bad lamp socket. (Most likely cause) or a bad connection at splice #S122, which is located in the main wiring harness near the breakout for the left headlamp. (RED/BLACK wire)

2002 Dodge Caravan headlamps: one works on dim the other works on high beam but not together. Also only one daytime running lamp.


Your van has dual diligent headlamp bulbs, that means each headlight has one bulb that serves as high beam and low beam. What has most likely happened is on one side the low beam filament has burnt out, and on the other side the high beam filiment has burnt out. The daytime running lights are just the high beam filament running on reduced power, so if the high beam doesn't work on one side, that same side will have no daytime running light. Replace both headlamp bulbs with matching, good quality bulbs.

My nissan maxima's headlights go fine on dip and full but when you put them on high beam they just cut off completely any ideas on how to fix this???


Have you replaced the lamps? Most car headlamps have separate elements for low beam and high beam. If both elements are broken, there's your answer. I believe also that the high beams are on a separate fuse to the low beams, so check your fuses to make sure it hasn't blown. Hope this helps!
Cheers, John

THE LOW BEAMS BOTH WENT AT SAME TIME AND WHEN REPLACED WITH NEW THEY DIDNT WORK EITHER WHY


things are never as simple as we wish. locate first the fuze for the headkights and see if it has current on both sides.with the key on, if ok suspect the highbeam dimmer switch or the headlight switch if high and low beams dont work.

Low beam headlamps not working on my 2004 armada


Did you check in the engine compartment.
If you go to autozone or advanced auto parts you can get a book for the car for about 15 bucks

Bulb Replacement
The headlamp is a semi-sealed beam type which uses a replacable
halogen bulb. The bulb can be replaced from the engine compartment
side without removing the headlamp body.
I Grasp only the plastic base when handling the bulb. Never
touch the glass envelope.
1. Disconnect the battery cable.
2. Disconnect the harness connector from the back side of the
bulb.
3. Pull off the rubber cap.
4. Press end of the retaining pin together to release bulb.
5. Remove the headlamp bulb. Do not shake or rotate the bulb
when removing it.
6. Install the new bulb in reverse order of removal.
