Question about 2008 Kia Pro-ceed 1.6

1 Answer

Headlight fault My drivers side headlight has stopped working! I thought bulb had gone so replaced the bulb and doesn't fix. The side lights were working before I changed the headlight bulb but they have stopped working now too! Any ideas? Common fault? Fuse fault? (Although the near side headlight and fog lights still work!) General electrical fault?

You may have blown a fuse, check fuses first then before you try to replace the bulb again check for broken wires or the correct bulb

Bad brake pedal switch. This assembly actually does three "jobs"; turning each left/right bulb on and then the center "eye"...accordianman

If all fuses and bulbs are fine, it's probably a problem with the wiring harness. Take it to the dealer. Wiring harnesses are not something to do by yourself unless you're experienced with wiring on the specific car.

Normally you'll find a brake switch at arm of brake pedal, up under dash. Switch should have 12v going in one side, when pedal not pushed, and both sides when pedal is pushed.

SOURCE: Headlights problems

Fuses are a number one culprit in cars and because there is a computer in your newer car it is helpful to FIRST read your owners manual, and keep it in your car. Second, do always check fuses and you can simply replace but if that is not working then there is wisdom in have your computer checked at a dealership. Also, make sure you do check with a dealer to see if there are any recall parts on your VIN number. Get them replaced for free and know your warranty, as well.

SOURCE: How do you replace a Drivers side headlight bulb 2006 kia spectra

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.

Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.

1997neon shifter won'T LIGHTUP


see this step and fix it. God bless you
Diagnosis: The problem could be a bad headlight bulb, a loose bulb or corroded bulb socket, a bad ignitor, or a bad ground connection or wiring harness fault at the ignitor. High Intensity Discharge Xenon headlight bulbs do not have a filament, so if the bulb has failed it may be cracked or leaking. The bulb also requires a high voltage ignitor to turn it on and keep it glowing. On some applications, the bulb and ignitor are one unit and can only be replaced as an assembly. On others, the bulb and ignitor are separate components, and can be replaced separately. The bulbs are expensive to replace ($50 to $100), and the ignitors are even more expensive to replace (up to $200!), so you want to make sure you have correctly diagnosed the faulty part BEFORE you replace anything.
TIP: Swap the "good" bulb that is working on the other side to the headlamp that is not working. If the headlight now works, you know the bulb you removed was bad and needs to be replaced. If the headlight still does not work, try swapping the "good" ignitor module on the other side to the side that is not working. If the headlight now works, the problem was a bad ignitor, not the bulb. You need to replace only the ignitor and not the bulb. If the headlight still does not work, you have a wiring fault such as a loose ground connection, a bad wiring harness at the headlamp housing, or a corroded bulb socket.

Weird tail light problem


HI Matt,
Your issue sounds like a fault, most likely in the rear lights. Current is feeding from the brake light circuit, into the running light circuit. The most common causes are a bulb filament broken and touching the running light circuit, and loss of ground.
observe the rear lights closely and you should get a clue as to which light is failing....but if not, just pick one....
I would run a temporary ground and test again, if no results, pull the brake light bulbs...
Transient current is often difficult to wrap your mind around, until you understand what can happen.

Drivers side head light is way dimmer than passenager light even after new bulb replacement


When looking from the outside of the headlight at the bulb, can you see the bulb clearly??
These lenses are notorious for dulling very badly. If it has you can use a regular headlight 'restoring' kit sold at most auto part locations.

If it is not a lens issue, you may have a wiring/supply issue.
Then you would need to find the troublesome wire/connection.
I am not the best at wiring issues, but I would try to find a power source wire with the same amperage rating, run a bypass jumper from a known good voltage source and see if the light changes. If no change, your problem may be the harness or plug at the rear of the headlight bulb.
Hope I could help

Replaced drivers side bulb hih intensity,bulb comes on flickers then goes out what else should i replace


Doesn't sound like the light is the problem. This can be the ballast, aka transformer. Try to interchange the other headlight and see if it duplicates the problem before buying a HID bulb.

2003 Highlander passenger headlight works off and on. Seems to be connected to the temperature on the rear view mirror. When the light doesn't work, the temp is a crazy number. Are they connected? ...


Try the bulb itself. You can check it with a voltmeter set to continuity. Check the harness for a poor ground connection near the bulb socket. It will be a black wire under a screw head on the chassis. If nothing out of the ordinary is found, replace the headlight relay for that side. Each headlight has its own relay.

What is the DRL warning light on the dashboard of my 2007 Honda CRV?


On my 2007 Honda CR-V The DRL code appeared on the dash board. Additionally I had only one high beam (on the passenger side); both low beams were fine, but I did not have a Daytime Running Light on the drivers side. The DRL code was really misleading because the real problem was that the high beam element in the headlight bulb was burned out. Note that the daytime running light is not a seperate bulb -- it is the high beam element which is powered at a low voltage. Once I replaced the head light bulb everything worked fine and the DRL code on the dash board was gone. So if the DRL message appears what you really need to do is replace the headlight bulb (there are YouTube videos which show how to do this - but search for headlight replacement, not for DRL fix). Be careful not to touch the new bulb with you hands since premature burnout can occur from the grease off your skin. I got my bulb from Wal-Mart for $8.88 (it's a 9003/HB2 for the 2007 CR-V) -- that's a pretty cheap fix.

05 Renault Grand Scenic. No dipped headlights. Bulbs and fuses OK


Are u sure that the bulbs are OK? I had no dipped lights on mine, & thought it must be a fuse or another electrical fault. It turned out, both bulbs had gone. I think this often happens when one side goes, the other soon follows.

Xenon headlight problems


there are 3 things that make the xenon in your car work the bulb, an ignitor, and a control module, you know your bulbs are ok so thats good, now you will want to swap the control modules they are a metal box attached to the headlight assembly its roughly 4"x4" you will remove the hheadlight assemblys to get to the module, there are 4 8mm bolts and then it pulls out, it the light follows the control module then thats what you will need if not you will need an ignigtor, as far as the flickering that is moet likely the module going bad, the company that makes this system is AL (automotive lighting) there is an SIB from BMW about this that says under a warr claim both control modules are to be replaced and the bulb of the faulty headlight, however i cant count the number of times i have done all that and still have to replace the ignigtor, If it is the Ign that is alot harder to swap as you have to dis assembly the entire light assembly
