How about the light switch or dimmer switch itself? This is old enough to have corrosion in the switch contacts from water entry. Try spraying WD-40 into the switch and operate it several times. Also, look into the headlight case area for corroded connections (light socket too) or loose connections in the wiring harness. Does the taillight wink on and off with the headlight?

How do i remove the head light on a 2008 chevy Malibu


Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Changing both headlight bulbs on your Malibu at the same time will allow both bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the new headlight bulb from appearing brighter than the bulb on the opposite side. In some Chevrolets, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb (and vise versa). Some Chevrolets have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights. These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. If your Malibu has this type of bulb, we do not recommend that you attempt to change it yourself.

When you change the headlight on your Malibu, it is important to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb.

Hope this helps! :)

Right brake light doesn't work with lights on. Switched R bulb and socket to left, and it works. Radio also goes off when headlights r applied. But radio comes on when I turn dimmer switch all the


check for power and ground. One should be at battery voltage and the other ground. Somet5imes ground can't handle the current from the bulb so try to make a connection to ground. I try to either use the fuel tank or run a wire from the battery.
Second reason the turn signal switch can go bad and keep the battery voltage from reaching the bulb. I will also assume you checked the bulb on the other side that you know works fine. I use electrical contact cleaner inside turn signal switch. Move the lever
rapidly to clear any possible dirt.

1996 honda 750 nighthawk headlight doesn't work fuse is ok ,bulb is ok


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chafed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Headlight fault


You may have blown a fuse, check fuses first then before you try to replace the bulb again check for broken wires or the correct bulb

My drivers side backup light isn't working. I changed the bulb and it still doesn't work. Apparently there isn't a fuse for the backup light. Can anyone help?


If the other one is working then there is something wrong with the wireing between the two of them, or the connection in the light or the bulb contacts are dirty in the holder.
