2001 Windstar headlight problem

The "burned out bulb" indicator on the dash came on. The left side high beam wouldn't light; I put in a new bulb. It still doesn't work & the "bulb out" warning light is still on. Sometimes the warning light flickers & goes off, but it comes back on eventually & the high beam never works. I've tried several bulbs, no luck.

HELP! Inspection coming up soon!

Thanks!

    the "bulb out" indicator recently came on...I have checked all bulbs (including high/low beams and fogs) and none are burned out. Anyone out there have the same problem. I don't like warning lights on the dash.

    There is little more that I can add to the previously described problem, but I will try.
    The problem started about two years ago and has been the same ever since, the alternator works properly charging the battery and running all the other ancillary equipment.
    No other bulbs have been affected.

You probably have a frayed wire leading from the main cable to the headlamp.  Look closely where it may be touching the frame and see if you have any wear etc.

What would cause the low beam headlight not to work when all other lights work?


If you have standard halogen bulbs:

  1. Burned out light bulb; or
  2. Fried wires between the dashboard wiring harness and the headlight bulb connectors; or
  3. Fried headlight bulb connectors.
If you have HEI emitters:
  • Failed ballast.

Headlights on 2005 corolla won't turn off at all


Pull up your emergency brake just enough to where your brake light on your dash comes on. If this changes anything or even doesn't change anything then let me know and I'll look further into your issue. These are just some of my trouble shooting steps.

Left headlights


Check your connections at the wiring harness going to headlights for corrosion, sounds like high resistance somewhere, also make sure your ground wires are secure. It wouldn't be the alternator or the battery would be dead and not start the engine. Also shouldn't be any condensation in your head light assembly's or will cause bulbs to blow prematurely.

I have a 2006 civic SI. DRL indicator is on, driver side low and high beam ok. Passenger side low beam ok but DRL and hi beam not working. Any help is appreciated.


When either the high or low beam light is out in either side, DRL (daytime running lights) indicator will come on. When one bulb goes out, that's a clue the opposite bulb will burn out soon, so its best to replace both bulbs. If it was a fuse issue, both left and right side would be out. If driver side is OK but passenger side is not, then its a bulb issue. A 2006 Honda civic takes 9006 (HB4) low beam bulbs and 9005 (HB3) high beam bulbs. Cheapest is online from Walmart site-2-store. After procuring, wear latex, vinyl, or ANY gloves to keep your (corrosive) oil skin from coming in contact with headlight glass bulbs. Your skin oil will chemically react and cause shorter life span on glass bulbs. Instruction don't tell you this, so you handle with your hands, then need to replace bulbs 3 years later instead of 5 years (or more) in the future. With gloves on, pop the hood and look behind each headlight. Turn counter clockwise to unlock headlight bulb holders. Its a quarter to half turn to unlock bulb holder lock. Replace one bulb at a time so you don't confuse high beam from low beam. The wire has a tab you need to lift to pull out & disconnect wire connector. You might need a slim narrow-**** (NOT phillips) screwdriver to lift the tab; or use your house key. Snap the wire connector to the new bulb, then twist into headlight housing to secure bulb holders, then move on to the next bulb to repeat the procedure. Pict below, 9005 high beam is on the left, 9006 low beam is on the right. Handle by grasping the plastic base, not the glass bulbs. The raised potrusion on the bottom center is where the tab locks onto wire connector. Replace all 4 bulbs now, but in the future, its likely the low beam will wear out before the high beam. In the future, replace only the pair, not all 4. The factory installs inferior bulbs that go out sooner, hoping you'll take to dealership and they ******** you with higher parts-n-labor fees. As opposed to Walmart online site-2-store, it would cost you AT LEAST triple in parts & labor from dealership to replace all 4 headlight bulbs :-(

When low beam headlight is on passenger sign is


Try this to eliminate new bulbs for both sides:
With a partner behind the wheel:
PULL out the bulbs one at a time. Keep them plugged in. While you are holding the bulb - have your partner click and HOLD the High Beam Selection. This causes the Low Beam and High Beam filaments to both go on and stay on.
Check both sides this way.
While the bulbs are out, look at the filaments that did not illuminate. Are they broken, bent, or have indications they are burnt out?
You can also change to bulbs (left to right, right to left) and recheck using the above method of holding the high beam selector and checking the filaments.

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.

My left headlight highbeam light works and the lowbeam don't why


the filament on the low beam burnt out. but the high beam didn't. You have a filament for each. 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam in the same light bulb. You need a new head light.

Right side will not work light glow only


If you have a service vehicle soon light (not service engine soon) this usually indicates a problem with the foreward lamp system.Your problem seems confusing, but check your high beam lamp operation. These cars are NOTORIOUS for corroded harnesses to the headlights. The problem is usually buried behind the washer bottle or across the radiator area. If you are lucky, it may be a burned out high beam bulb. If the blue symbol for brights stays on and there is no click when pulling on high beam lever, you will need a new turn signal switch.
