Headlight Issues

Post by islander20 » Sat Nov 14, 2015 7:45 am

I just recently noticed that one of my headlights is out. When I have my lights set to low beams one of the headlights is out, but if I set them to hi beams both lights are on. I also noticed the both of the inner bulbs in the smaller reflector are out. When are these supposed to be one? Hi/Lo beams? Thanks, I'm not sure if this is electrical or something else.

The outer reflectors are your low beam and high beam (2 filaments in one bulb) The inner reflectors are your high beams as well so all 4 should be lit when high beam is on.

One of your outer bulbs has a broken low beam filament....time to replace it but the hi/lo bulbs should be changed in pairs when one burns out.

Good time to look at whiter/brighter bulbs.
