Low beam headlight
« on: March 13, 2021, 02:35:19 AM »
My low beam doesn't seem to turn on.  The two side tiny light bulb turns on.  High beam also works fine.  I've checked the headlight fuse and seems fine.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

It may sound crazy, but it happens. Some times a fuse (I'm saying the glass, tubular type with the silver ends) break below or above the glass, hidden by the metal. If you use a continuity meter you'd be sure if it's good or failed. As to the more modern fuses, they're pretty obvious when they're broken. Of course, replacing either with a new, known good fuse (your spare - ahem) would be a simple check for that situation. If this isn't a solution, it might make us think a little different. By the way, don't use foil gum wrappers to "bridge" a fuse.   Well, there's my two cents worth. Best wishes.

This is one of the modern fuse.  The fuse have no break, looks good.  I've also placed spare fuse and still low beam will not turn on.

I know this one's even more obvious, it's not the dip filament in the bulb blown ?

Would that mean I have to take apart the headlight housing? No, lol.  I hope it wouldn't come to that.

Before I take off the headlight housing, I would like to confirm that there are two bulbs- high beam and low beam?  I'm under the impression that there is one bulb for high and low beam.  Correct me if I'm wrong please

Yes, there is one bulb that provides high and low beams.

Quite the mystery, but one step at a time solves them.

Stay calm.
