Well, its not the "circut breaker" aka the fusebox, so there has to be a problem with the regulator. when you say headlight "blows" do you mean the actual bulb burns out, the fuse burns out, or the light just turns off? it matters. on a side note, if your headlight stops working, its normal for all the other lights to get a little brighter due to the extra power for the headlight going to the others.

Turnsignals normal with headlights off.But , blink real fast when headlights on


Check you running light bulb.. some of those have two elements in them and one side could be blow inside the single bulb. The blinking is how the car tells you that you have a bad bulb, or maybe a short. Mostly likely it just a bulb.

I just put in a set of headlights on my 05 350z. They are they Spyder smoke and are plug and play. Hooked up HID and they worked fine, for a few minutes. Passenger side still works fine on low beam but...


For starters, "..worked fine, for a few minutes." sounds like a current overload issue. Is the headlight wattage greater than the wattage of the bulb(s) you are replacing? If so, you're asking for trouble; the least being burnt wires and circuits. Worst case would be a fire.
Assuming you're within wattage specs and assuming you've checked fuses, it's a matter of using a test light working backwards from the headlight ( if you have power to the headlight but light does not work, you either have a bad bulb or it is not getting "grounded").

Usually this is a bad headlight switch. It CAN be caused by extra lighting or a bad ground on a trailer light connection,though. don-ohio

Tail lights and dash lights out in 96 dodge ram. all other lights work. already replaced headlight switch. still no tail lights


does the fuse keep blowing ?? it is also on the same line as the cigarette lighter if the fuse is blowing check that there is nothing stuck in the lighter socket that is shorting it out. Could also be a bad ground wire not makeinig contact.

You have a bad mutifunction switch or headlight switch is going bad and is over heating then cooling off comming back on Have a mechanic check it cause there are other things that can cause this. Since it's not blowing a fuse at this time I would say the head light switch is bad.
