2003 BMW R1150RT Headlight (low beam) does not work

My low beam bulb does not come on. I thought I had a blown bulb, so I replaced it with a high intensity PIAA bulb. That bulb doesn't work either. I have found no fuse dedicated to the low beam bulb so i cannot blame a fuse. All other lights function properly.
Any suggestions?

Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working the first thing 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 to headlight bulb socket.
2. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
3. Faulty ignition switch.
4. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
5. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am brights work but ONE low beam is out ...


You most likely need a new low beam headlight BULB.It has the low and high beam in it and the separate high beam has only high.
You SHOULD have 2 tabs ,one at each end to pull up and the headlight assembly should then come out easily.
Tapping a blown out headlight can reattach the filament for a short time but after that replacement is necessary.

My vw 2002 beetle headlight bulb has been replaced and still wont work?


I believe vw uses 4 fuses 2 high beam, 2 low beam, see if high beams work,check for a blown fuse. Another possibility is a corroded wiring harness that plugs in behind the headlight. Unplug and replug the headlight socket a couple times to clean corrosion.

2003 FLSTCI high beam works, low beam and spots do not work. Do I have a plug problem under the gas tank or a problem in the H/L handlebar switch?


sounds to me like the low beam filament in the headlight bulb is blown test for voltage on the yellow wire at the headlight with it set to low beam if you have voltage here you more then likely have a blown low beam filament

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.

Changing headlamps on 2003 bmw 325xi


I am assuming that you have a burned out head light bulb.
1) Open hood.
2) Working in back of headlight assembly, grasp rear of bulb socket (harness connector) and turn counterclockwise 90 degrees. Pull bulb out of headlight assembly.
3) Disconnect harness connector from bulb (gently pry, it's plastic)
4) Installation is reverse of removal. (Do not touch halogen bulb with bare skin-oils from hand will cause bulb to burn out.) Align tabs on bulb base to cutouts on rear of lens assembly. (Note bottom tab is wider than other two) Secure bulb by rotating clockwise 90 degrees.

High beam bulb H9005
