I have a 1998 Buick Century Limited and my driver's side headlight won't work. I replaced the bulb and checked the fuses under the hood and everything is checking out. My blinker still works.
My blinker still works. I have a knob on the far left side of the dash that
controls my lights. When I pull the knob all the way out to activate my
headlights, my passenger light comes on but the driver side doesn't. I've
replaced the bulb, checked the fuses under the hood and those check out.
I did a little bit of research and I have a feeling that it might be a fuse
dealing with the light. I need help because I simply cannot figure this out.
Not a fuse if right side headlight comes on, it is probably a bad connection or broken wire, with the bulb plugged in the socket, move it around with the lights on, still don't work continue up the wire to the next connection and check it out. It is nice to have a test light for this kind of thing, then you can figure out where the power stops.
Could it be the headlight switch that has gone bad?
Not sure, maybe, did you see if there is power in the line into the socket? A test light is cheep, alligator clip one end, sharp steel probe on the other, with a light in before the probe, just connect alligator clip to ground, test (probe) to a known power source to make sure there is a good ground connection, check power line to the bulb, follow it up until you find power.
