Driver side headlight low beam doesn’t work, only works when put in on high beam, I checked the connections to the bulb and the headlight wire works when I use a test light but the low beam doesn’t work, so I’m assuming it’s not my bulb. I looked at the wires behind it and doesn’t look cut or pinched. The headlight just randomly went off.

So you have power and ground on the low beam connection?

The first place to check would be the dimmer switch. Note that I said check, not replace. If the switch checks out good, look for a break in the low beam wire between the switch and the headlamp.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
