Was the old headlamp working? if it was not then make sure that the connector from the car is clean from rust and check the wires to make sure that they are not worn out.Thank you for visiting fixya!

How do i change the headlights on my 03 kia spectra?


There are 4 headlight caps on this model-2 on each side, the caps must be unscrewed in order to access the back of the headlight socket, once the cap for the headlight is removed you must also unlock a spring mechanism and then you will be able to access the headlight socket to replace the bulb-bulbs are fairly priced and most auto parts stores

I have a 2002 Kia Spectra ls, why does the headlight bulbs keep blowing? My husband checked the ground, said it was ok. He replaced only the low beam bulbs, to see if the problem was with the high beams,...


Check the socket to see if voltage is spiking over 13.5 volts with a voltmeter while revving engine . Charging could be bad.Look for bare wires around the assembly as well.

Can i use h4 -130/80cp-60/55w halogen lights on my 2002 kia spectra


hi,

you can try to see if the kias headlight wiring and assmeblies will take it. it may blow a fuse. first leave the stock headlight on for ten minutes to see how hot the composite headlight assembly gets. replace one on the passenger side with the hotter bulb and observe how hot the wires and composite headlamp assembly is getting. it it gets to hot to handle then I wouldnt do it. if its okay then replace them both, feel the main headlight wires to make sure theyre not to hot either. leave them on with the replacements for another 10 minutes, the stock fuse would blow in that time. You may have to go up 5 amps on the headlight fuses but absolutely no more. have you seen the other type of headlights HID's?
you might want to try that option as well, and I think those are are designed to replace stock installations better. use your discretion and be careful. the last thing you want is headlights using their own candlepower! lol,
