One of my headlights isn't working

  • 100,000 MILES

Hi, a few weeks ago I had a low speed crash into a small tree, nothing major just wheel alignment and put a rectangle shaped hole in the front bumper near the bottom.
Since then I have noticed that the right headlight isn't working, full beam works fine and the park lights work but just low beam isn't. I have tried replacing the globe, checked the fuse and relay in the engine compartment.

I was thinking that maybe I damaged the earth wire or something when I hit the tree or possibly damaged something else. But the engine compartment is so small in this car that I can't get my hands in there to have a look. Do you have any ideas as to where I should look first?

Thank you, Any help appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?

We don't have any information on thsi vehicle so I don't have the wiring schematic to work with.

Not sure which system is used and if you can get the wiring schematics, that would make it much easier.

Space constraints mean you need to do more work to get at something and cannot be helped.
Check the area of damage for signs of possible damage to wireharnesses. If any repairs were done check for proper installation of wireharnesses and ground circuits.
