Four cylinder front wheel drive automatic 60,000 miles.

My low beam driver side headlight is out. I replaced the bulb but the headlight is still not working. Could there be another problem beside the bulb?
Do you

Have you checked the fuse and the relay?

Wow!

This light has been out since 2009?

Is there power to the socket?

Yes, it is possible that bulb number two could be bad also (I have seen shipping and handling in action).

If one light works and the other doesn't then it could be the fuse. We should check the fuse and check for power a the fuse then at the socket.

Here are some guides to help us do some testing to figure out what the problem is.

Here are some diagrams (Below) to help us get started.

Please let us know what you find.

Cheers, Ken

  • 2003 NISSAN ALTIMA
Hey I own a 2003 Nissan Altima that has about 100,000 miles and its a v4 (Still runs great) but I recently had to change my front lights and everything worked fine until my front left headlight (low beam) wouldnt turn on. However, both my high beams work and my right low beam works although my left low beam doenst. My dad checked and saw no electricity was running through the wires that connects to the left low beam light. He said it might be a fuse but isn't sure because the left high beam works and the other lights work. Do you know what could be the problem? Thanks ?

Fused seperately. Use test light see if power to lights.
Somtimes one burns out you don't notice and sometime later the other goes making it look like both blew at once.

Hello,

There are five fuses that run the system check out the guide below to show you how to test for power and there are headlight wiring diagrams below as well so you can see how the system works.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
