Low beam headlight problem

Asked by Feb 23, 2016 at 09:41 AM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driver's side low headlight out.  Checked connector, both sides, from negative battery terminal to connector.  One side 0 voltage, assume it is negative side.  One side 3.5 volts, assume it is positive side.  Believe this means fuse is OK but voltage not adequate, need 12 volts.  Solution?

I am having the EXACT same problem. Bulb is good. Fuses good (as far as I have been able to tell). Right side works. Left side out. Swapped out bulbs to confirm it's not the bulb. Did you get a handle on the problem? I'd be real curious to hear if you found a solution. Tom Tomthumb47@hotmail.com

I gotta tell ya guys, I never found an answer. I took it over to my mechanic for a state inspection. He called me to say, "you had a headlight out, so we put in a new bulb. You're good to go." At first I started to say, "How did you get it to work?" - but then I just said, okay, thank you! ha. I haven't had a problem since. I'll never know why I couldn't get it to work. Just another weird electrical story.
