Hi Anonymous, if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.
For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have nice a day.

SOURCE: Main beam not working. Swap bulb to high beam

Can you take apart headlight and measure voltage at low beam socket when bulb is not working? If there is not 12 V nominal at the socket, then the wiring or ZFE is defective. Your bike should still be under warranty??

I have seen one bike that had an intermittent ZFE control module and the high beam was intermittent. Ended up replacing the control module to fix it.

All you need to do is purchase a new ignition switch from BMW. It comes complete with a short section of the harness, with a plug on the end. Simply fit it to the top yolk and plug the wiring into the plug socket.

2001 grand caravan low beam light not working. i chang bulb already i check fuse already.


Hi Every single time I have had a failure of low beam in a headlight without failure of high beam, it has been because the lamp bulb or halogen lamp module has reached the end of its serviceable life, not because of any wiring problems. Low beam burns out first because it is on the most. If low beam is lost simultaneously in both headlights, I would check fuse first, then the headlight switch. If low beam is lost on one side only, it is almost always going to be due to the bulb or lamp module needing to be replaced. In that case, replace them in both headlights because the other one will be going kaput in short order, as well.Also if you already replaced the fuse and bulb check the headlight dimmer control switch.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Can the headlight assembly of a 2004 Toyota Sienna be disassembled to replace a faulty low beam bulb?


The whole bulb will have to be replaced. One bulb has high/low beam. You should be able to access it from behind the light assembly. You should have a locking device at the headlight assembly and be able to pull the assembly out to make it easier.

I can't get to the high beam bulbs on our 2005 Odyssey. How do I remove the headlight for easier access to the bulbs?


The procedure doesn't call for removing the headlight assembly. It is as follows:
The high beam headlight bulb and the low beam headlight bulb are replaced the same way.

Open the hood. To change the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, remove the power steering fluid reservoir from its holder by pulling it straight up.

Remove the electrical connector from the bulb by pushing on the tab and pulling the connector down.

Remove the bulb by turning it one quarter turn counterclockwise.

Insert the new bulb into the hole and turn it one-quarter turn clockwise to lock it in place.

Push the electrical connector back onto the bulb. Make sure it is on all the way.

Turn on the headlights to test the new bulb.

If you replaced the high beam headlight bulb on the passenger’s side, reinstall the power steering fluid reservoir.

Hope this helps, but if you are having some specific problem leave a more detailed comment and I will try to help you.

Changing the headlights


This picture shows the rear side of the headlamp assembly. I've circled the access caps to the high & low beam bulbs (they just twist off (counter-clockwise) to access the bulbs. Depending on which engine is in your Tiburon, access is easier if you remove three 10mm mounting bolts to the headlamp assemblies and remove the entire headlamp assemblies (see illustration)
c173c7f.jpg You'll want to disconnect these two connectors .. then remember to reconnect them when you put the assemblies back on.

Hope this helps

2001 Infiniti QX4 low beam bulb replacement instructions


Look directly behind the headlight box if there is a rubber sleave covering the plug take it off. Unplug the wires from the bulb, there may be a saftey clip you will have to pry up to get it off.after you get the plug off the bulb holder should twist counterclockwise then it will pull right off.When you change the bulb just remember to wipe your body oil off the bulb before attaching it back into the headlight box. Then plug it back in and your in business. The high beam has three wires and the low beam has two wires. The bulb will have to be the right one.
