It sounds like it is the headlight motor on that side. You can buy them from a dealer or online. But first you may want to check your relays

Headlights won't work


Very much sounds like wiring. You can go to any local auto parts store and ask them to test your alternator output. You can check each fuse, especially the one for the headlights. I've never heard of a headlight/radio connection. I think I would start with checking alternator output.

My car won't shift from park. If I put a key in the hole next to the shift stick, it moves. Now the hold light is blinking. Yes I checked the hold button


you didn't specify what kind of vehicle but it sounds like something a daewoo does, under the dash on driver side there are relays, one of them controls the solenoid in the shift handle also allows the key to be removed from ignition. there is a cover below the steering column that comes off to access the relays.

NEED TO REPLACE HEADLIGHT ON DRIVER SIDE OF 07 SUBARU TRIBECCA.


You need to remove the battery hold down bracket and scoot the battery towards the engine you don't have to disconnet the battery to do this, that way you won't lose your stereo presets. you will then have access to the bulb covers that twist off. They are marked on the covers for which way to turn them, also, do NOT touch the new bulb if you did not already know. I hope this info helps.

How to replace the headlight in 2002 chev trail blazer


There are 2 ways, 1 includes removing the grill....These grills are easy to break if not taken out very carefully.

Drivers side- I stick my hand down by the alternator and over behind the headlight. Remove the rubber cover and twist the light out.

Passengers side- I take the top of the air cleaner off, then you have complete access to the rubber covers and bulbs.

5 minute job to do both sides.

Need to replace low beam headlamps on 2006 Chevy Trailblazer.


For the passenger side- need to remove the air cleaner top and move the air cleaner out of the way. You can now access the rubber covers that protect the bulbs.

For the Drivers side, just stick, your hand down behind the headlight and remove the rubber cover.

Remember, do not touch the new bulbs, the oil from our hands will burn a hold in the bulb.

Change low beam headlight


Open the hood.

If you need to change the headlight bulb on the driver’s side, remove the air intake cover (see below.)

Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pulling the connector straight back.
Remove the rubber weather seal by pulling on the tab.

Unclip the end of the hold-down wire from its slot. Pivot it out of the way and remove the bulb.

Insert the new bulb into the hole, making sure the tabs are in their slots. Pivot the hold-down wire back in place and clip the end into the slot.

Install the rubber seal over the back of the headlight assembly. Make sure it is right side up; it is marked TOP.

Push the electrical connector onto the new bulb.

Turn on the headlights to test the new bulb.

(Driver’s side) Reinstall the air intake cover.

If you are working on the driver’s side: Remove the two pins holding the air intake cover by pulling the head on each pin (careful, I think these are the kind of heads that do not come all the way out, but only far enough so the pin can be removed) . Remove the air intake cover.

Hope this helps you.

How to replace headlight bulb? Looks complicated.


From MidSouth Tech Tips:
  1. Before you try removing the headlight housings, check for a blown fuse first, since the headlight circuits on these cars are fused. The fuse is located on the regular fuse panel inside the car, on the left side of the dashboard behind the removable cover.Well, since there are no visible screws anywhere around, how do I get the headlight out? It’s not that hard at all.
  2. Open the hood. Locate the seam between the nosepiece and the front fender (either side). Go up between the first two fender mounting bolts and look down a few inches. See a small knob sticking out at you? That is a release lever for the headlight assembly. Push in on it slightly and pull all the way up as far as the lever will go.
  3. Now push on the headlight from behind with one hand and be prepared to catch the assembly with the free hand from the front. It may take a bit of a push because there is some gooey adhesive between the headlight and the fender.
  4. Once you have the headlight out, pull the connector off the back of the housing and take the headlight somewhere where it is easy to work on. Put it on a pillow or something soft so you don’t risk scratching the lens.
  5. There is a black plastic cover on the back of the housing. See a tab on it? Push on this tab and pull the cover down to expose the bulbs.
  6. There is a metal spring clip that holds these bulbs in place. Undo this and the bulb will fall out. Take out the new bulb and compare it with the one you are replacing. Make sure the wattage is correct, since they are both H1 bulbs.Never touch the glass part of the bulb itself with your fingers.
  7. Use the soft cloth to handle the bulb if needed. Line up the tabs of the bulb base with the slots in the reflector housing and drop the bulb in. Put the spring clip back on and make sure the ends of the clip are in securely. Put the bulb cover back on.Now is the time to clean up the mess around the fender where the headlight mounts. Remember seeing that nasty-looking goo seep out from around the rubber seal on your headlights? That’s the adhesive I was talking about earlier.
  8. Take the adhesive remover on the paper towels and remove this stuff from the fender before putting the headlight back in. Don’t remove all of it from behind the headlight itself, as it is there to keep excess amounts of water from getting behind the headlight. Just remove enough to where it won’t make a mess anymore. A little wax around the mounting area on the fender will detail things out nicely.
  9. Position the headlight up to the fender. Push on the wire connector. Line up the tabs on the headlight assembly to the slots in the headlight housing in the fender and push the whole thing in. Sometimes things won’t line up on the first try, but keep trying. The headlight should go up against the fender fairly easily.
  10. Once you get it to this point, grab the release lever, push all the way down, and lock the headlight assembly into place.
All you do now is test the lights. That’s it! The headlight aim should not have been affected during this procedure. Some wax or glass cleaner will be good for cleaning the lenses and make them sparkle again. If you have those trick blue bulbs or other colors, always keep a spare bulb handy, of the same color and manufacturer, so you won’t be stuck with odd colors until you get the right replacemen

Removing the whole pop head lights assembly from my 1997 corvette


Raise the headlights, either with the switch or manually by turning the knob on the headlight motor counter-clockwise.
Unplug the lights NOW to avoid an accidental closing on your fingers,
Remove the 3 philips screws holding the black plastic surrounding the headlights, and slide it forward, there is a small clip on the top that helps hold it to a corresponding clip at the top of the headlight,
Look inside the cavity and you can see the 5 nuts/bolts ( 6 on later years ) that need to be removed,
If you are on the driver's side you can now remove the whole assembly, on the passenger's side you must first unplug the headlight door control module.
