    Default Headlights not working?!?!

    Maybe someone out there has had the same problem.

    Last night I go out and start my car and the low-beams will not go on. My interior lights, turn signals, side marker lights, and taillights all work properly. Even my high-beams work. At first I thought it might be a fuse, but then wouldn't the high-beams not work either? Please help me.

    Check the fuse....if it is the fuse, figure out why. they don't pop on their own.

    Then check the bulb. Although very uncommon, both bulbs can pop at the same time.

    Then I'd check connections, grounds and anything that might be interupting the powerflow of the circut. And if it isn't the bulbs to maybe bring it in for warrenty.

    well, checked the fuse and then used a test light to test the harness that plugs into the headlight bulb...and there is power. Guess both bulbs burnt out at the same time (or i got a short). To the mechanic tomorrow.

    yeah its not uncommon it seems for both lights to go at the same time in our cars. its also not uncommon for one to die one day and the other die the next. this happens to me all too often.

    Check your headlight relays. If the relays are okay. Then your bulbs are unusually burned at the same time.

    Yeah then you can change them yourself, easy excuse to snoop under that hood. I love underhoods...but not as much as underwear. (girlie underwear...)
