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.

It's a sensor daylight driving sensor goes out it causes lights not to come on.

@roger Is there a sensor per left and right side low beam? Also, it seems like if the lights were in the on position and not Auto shouldn't that bypass the sensor? I'm having the same issue reported here, bulb is good and fuse is good but still no low beam. Let me know what people have found.

Same problem here. I cannot figure out which fuse to replace since the owners manual is SO Ikea like! 2015 sonata Sport.....seems everything is "take it to your dealership....which the fires of hell would never drag me too. Hyundai's service department is worse than trying to deal with Hyundai Motor Finance! NEVER again.
