Hi
you normally have dimmer roller (setting 0,1,2,3,4) next to head light on/off switch.

Hello, I have a headlight problem on a 2004 chey calvalier. All of my lights work except low beam on drivers side. Fuses on left and right headlights are good. I've switched bulbs as well and nothing...


I would focus on the connections going to that head light for the low beam. I agree, it is not the switch, otherwise other side low beam would not be working. It is most likely bad bulb inlet( if it i separated bulbs for high and low) or it is the connection going to the low beam that operates it. Hope this helps. Don't waste your time on switch, it is not that.

Low Beam Drivers Side doesn't work ... low voltage,


Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.

If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.

If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.

I have only one low beam headlight working, all other lights and both hi beams work. not the bulb. ckd the socket. i dont have 12v at the socket with the ohm mtr lead set on pos btry or neg btry. lights on...


The most likey place will be the double connecter on the driver side where it feeds the headlight check connections on the low beam and there should be a connection to go to the other side. if the wire is not hot from the driver side going to the passenger side that is your problem. Last item will be the head light switch. But check the wires on the oppiste side also check the ground wire.
