Question about 1990 Honda CRX

Open Question

Passenger side Headlight going out periodically. High beams work. --would twist the socket inside the headlamp to make it go back on. This went on for months. Then, passenger side headlight went out. Saw broken filament. Replaced filament, lit while I was maneuvering bulb into headlamp, then went out. No amount of twisting or reinserting filament will solve problem. Is socket bad? Just on low beam part? ---There is no damage to wire harness.

SOURCE: DRL and High Beam do not work right on Honda Accord EX 1998

Some time back I found some data on a similar website suggesting that the Day Light Running circuit board, just under the steering column, developed cracks in some of the soldered joints. Your high beams should also be affected with loss of day light running lights.
Resoldering repaired the continuity of the circuits. Ours is now working quite reliably. Some of the defective areas developed slight brownish discoloration, that's how I was told to recognise the areas to be resoldered. Hope this will help you solve your problem.

SOURCE: low beam headlight on Pilot 2004

Hi again,

I lookd for the Technical Service Bulletin on headlights that you referred to in our Live Chat. It is Service Bulletin 07-027 dated May 12, 2007. A downloadable copy is avaibale here. It contains procedures, photos and images on how to address the issue. However, may I point out that said TSB refers to both left & right low beams and not only the right.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I just got this done. You don't have to do anything under the hood. (i took too much apart. do not do that) remove the four philips screws from the wheel well covering. with the tire turned to the inside you can reach the seal cap at the rear of the head lamp housing. two clips hold the lamp housing into the electrical socket. use your thumb nails to spread the clips and pull the lamp housing out of the electrical socket.

1986 dodge w150(power ram) headlight stuck on high beams. Also having trouble with passenger headlight not working. Already replaced Hi/Low dimmer switch.


Have you checked the relay in the circuit. You really need a schematic of the wiring diagram. Electrical can be tricky without the wiring diagram.

Odds are you have a connection problem. Stop & buy a tube of dielectric compound from an auto parts store. Apply it to the electrical connection at the lamp after you make sure there is no corrosion present.

How to replace headlights on 1989 toyota camry


1989 Toyota Camry

A little personal tip - if you get fingermarks on a halogen headlamp, you can wipe them off with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or, if you want to do what mechanics do, keep a number of 2X2 alcohol wipes in your automotive toolbox just to wipe off halogen headlight bulbs.

HEADLAMP REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Sealed Beam Headlamps

See Figures 2 and 3

Before making a headlight replacement, make sure that the headlight switch is in the off position.

1. Loosen the screws, release the clips and remove the headlight door. To release the clips, insert a flat blade screwdriver into the jaws of the clip and pry on the jaws.

2. Remove the beam unit retaining ring screws and remove the beam unit.

Fig. 2: Headlamp door clip removal

3. Compress the lock releases and disconnect the wire connector from the headlight. If the connector is tight, wiggle it while holding in the lock releases and pulling out.

Fig. 3: Do not remove the adjusting screws when removing the head lamp sealed bulb

Never try to loosen the aim adjusting screws. If the screws are loosened, the headlights will have to be re-aimed by a qualified technician.

4. When installing, use only a sealed beam unit with the same part number and wattage.

Composite Headlamps

See Figures 4, 5 and 6

Fig. 4: Headlight bulbs are inside the sockets located in the engine compartment

Fig. 5: Detach the wiring from the back of the headlamp bulb

This procedure only applies to replaceable halogen headlight bulbs (such as Nos. 9004 and 9005); it does not pertain to sealed beam units.

1. Open the vehicle's hood and secure it in an upright position.

Fig. 6: Twist and pull the bulb out, but do not touch the bulb if it is still good

2. Unfasten the locking ring which secures the bulb and socket assembly, then withdraw the assembly rearward.

3. If necessary, gently pry the socket's retaining clip over the projection on the bulb (use care not to break the clip.) Pull the bulb from the socket.

To install:

4. Before installing a light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.

5. Line up the replacement headlight bulb with the socket. Firmly push the bulb onto the socket until the spring clip latches over the bulb's projection.

WARNING
Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorten the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.

6. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. (If this is a combination low and high beam bulb, be sure to check both intensities.) If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct if necessary.

7. Position the headlight bulb and secure it with the locking ring.

8. Close the vehicle's hood.

How do remove a headlight from the the assembly for a 1999 buick park avenue


Hello there,
For you to be able to take off the assembly of the headlight on your car, please follow the steps below:
Ensure that the headlight switch (on the driver side of the Regal's passenger cabin) is in the off position.
Release the hood latch and open the hood.
Approach the passenger-side headlamp assembly. (Although on your left, this is the right-side lens assembly when sitting inside the vehicle.)
Locate the two white retaining brackets on the top rear edge of the assembly.
Lift the tabs straight upward about an inch to an inch and a half.
Grab the assembly from the sides of the front edge (being careful of any broken lens pieces; although the lens is made of plastic, you can still get cut by jagged pieces).
Firmly pull the assembly outward, away from the front of the Regal. Wiggle the assembly slightly to unseat the headlamp assembly alignment guide pins from their anchors.
Pull the assembly out only far enough to access the wire harness connections of the low-beam headlight, the high-beam headlight and the integrated parking/directional light.
Twist the retaining collar of the low-beam lamp (the outside lamp, toward the fender) a quarter-turn counterclockwise to remove the light from the headlamp assembly while it is still attached to the wire harness. Be careful not to contact the halogen bulbs with your bare hands, or you can damage the bulbs.
Twist the retaining collar of the high-beam headlight (the inner headlight, closer to the grill) in the same manner as you did the low-beam lamp to remove the high-beam bulb and harness from the headlamp assembly.
Twist the socket of the last remaining integrated parking/directional bulb and wire harness assembly a quarter-turn counterclockwise to remove it from the headlight assembly.
Discard the assembly and replace it with the new headlamp assembly by following the steps above in reverse order. Make sure to align the tabs of the retaining collar and parking/directional lamp socket with the mating notches on the new headlamp assembly before turning them all clockwise a quarter-turn to lock them in place.

I have a 2006 ford escape and the passenger head light low beam will not work. Tried replacing the bulb, and check fuses nothing is working.. what else can I try?


Both your low beam and your high beam is protected by the same fuse, so it makes sense that the fuse is OK if the high beam is working on the passenger side. There are 3 fuses for the headlamps. Fuse #13 in the Battery Junction Box (20 Amp). If this fuse is blown, the headlamp relay will not have any power and neither high nor low beam on either side will work (you will have no headlamps at all) Then there is Fuses #2 and #3 (15 Amp) in the Battery Junction Box. #2 goes to the left low and high beam and #3 goes to the right low and high beam.
The headlamp switch uses a SINGLE CIRCUIT to control BOTH sides at the same time, so if one side works, the switch cannot be the problem. The headlamp relay provides power for fuses #2 and #3 and we already ascertained that these fuses must have power since we have working lights on both sides, so the relay cannot be the problem. A replacement bulb has already been tried, so that pretty much leaves us with a bad lamp socket. (Most likely cause) or a bad connection at splice #S122, which is located in the main wiring harness near the breakout for the left headlamp. (RED/BLACK wire)

Do I have to change the whole headlight if my low beam is out on the passenger side


You can replace just the bulb. There is a cover that clips onto the back panel of the headlamp. Take that cover off and pull out the socket that the bulb twists into. Then you can replace just the bulb itself.

How to replace HEADLIGHT (low beam bulb), passenger side.


Open the hood, and using a 7mm socket remove the long headlamp jackscrew 2nd from left. Grasp the headlight assembly on the upper inboard and lower outboard corners and wiggle and pull very firmly outward to disengage the 3 ball stud alignment posts from their sockets (be cautious of the sharp edges of the grille and fender areas surrounding the headlamp).
There is a bulb that plugs into a socket dirctly behind the headlight. In order to access it you must lift the hood. Next, you will have to remove the plastic ring that holds the socket in the rear of the headlight housing.
Twist the ring CCW (if you are facing the front of the vehicle)until it becomes loose and pull the socket and bulb through the hole. Then using a small flat tipped screwdriver lift out the little tab that holds the lightbulb on the socket and pull the bulb straight out from the socket. {Note: Pay Close Attention to the direction the plastic ring came out from, it is a pain to get back on if you don't. It will only go on one way...to hold the socket in place}

Headlight assembly


Pull upward on black cover above headlamp assy. (marked pull here for headlamp service) you will then see on the front side a large bolt above the lamp assembly that holds it to the front of the car. it is a 10MM socket you will then need to remove a similar bolt on the top and bottom on the center front of the car where the assembly bolts up to the sheet metal. on the corner near the cornering lamp is a star shaped head bolt. (looks like star of david) you will need another small metric socket to remove this. this will free up the cornering lamp from the headlamp assembly. gently pull forward and away from headlamp assembly. remove both light pig tails by gently twisting on pigtails. you will then see 2 nuts which are also 10mm remove these and gently pull forward on entire headlamp assembly. you will need needle nose pliers to compress the head of plastic retaining tabs on headlight and signal light pig tails where they are held into the headlamp assembly. gently twist hi-low beam sockets free of the headlamp assembly then do like wise with the signal lamps. to install reverse procedure as above. note: the side with the cornering lamp has a tab that must fit back into tab-hole in front sheet metal of the front fender
