    Default Fuse or headlight bulb

    I own a 2003 Elantra GT and my passenger headlight and the passenger fog light are not working although the driver side is fine. I have looked around in the forum and I am guessing could be either blown bulb(s) or fuse.

    From the above symptom can I determine if it is a blown headlight or a fuse?

    Thanks!

    Well, you can take the bulb out and look at it. That would be the easiest thing to do...

    Easiest thing to do would be check/change the fuse. The light takes a little more getting at than the fuse panel.

    True, but come on. Why are we over thinking it. The bulbs are blown. I bet you $1000 bucks...

    Separate circuits, fuses and relays between the fog and headlights.

    Im 100% sure its a blown bulb not a fuse, the bulb is the most common to go before a fuse does. just remove the bulb and check it, it only takes 2 mins to take it out.
    its also very rare for a headlight fuse to go out, very rare.
