    Years ago, I made some huge mistakes on a vehicle with both low beams inop. First mistake, assumed there was an issue with common wiring, ground or blown fuse. So I started tearing a bunch of stuff apart to access the fuses and wiring test points and went to and from entire circuits testing, even went to plugs and tested bulb wiring, leaving bulbs connected and in assembly. Checked entire circuit both headlights. 2nd biggest mistake was missing an important step: take bulb out and look at it. First one I pulled out, 8 hours later after getting every point accessed and tested, pulled bulb out, low beam filament broken. Replaced and it lit, went to 2nd bulb and same thing. Got paid 15 minutes diagnostic time and 9 minutes for bulb replacement. Wasted ton of time unpaid for 2 blown out bulbs. Another thing I messed up on was keep testing instead of listening to the meter. Would have saved a ton of time to see at bulb connector battery voltage drop test under load and it eliminated any more testing and only thing it could be was the component faulty. But I started at fuses, then positive side to bulb, then ground side. Listen to what the testing tool is telling you instead of assuming or going into a problem thinking only one thing it can be even though test proves otherwise. I went in looking for where the wiring was corroded or broken and missed it, even after seeing battery voltage going in and none coming out. Could have just done voltage drop across the 2 wires and saved 8 hours time and a ton of embarrassment.

    Those old Pacificas were electrical nightmares!

    Great information

    I think I have the same thing going on with mt 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 right low beam. I think someone has previously replaced the socket.

    Lmao. First you helped me fix a bad grounding on my 06 Pacifica, now I'm back for the left low beam headlight.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Rodriguez says:

    Great video. Thank you

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Mike Caskenette says:

    What fuse is for the headlights ?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Omar Romero says:

    Damm! this was a grate video!!!!. Thanks.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marvin Marquis says:

    This is awesome because that's exactly what is wrong with my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500…high beam works no low beam on passenger side. After an $1800 estimate I just adjusted the level of the high beams. Been driving that for almost two years. Didn't want to buy a new TIPM? But now I'll check this out to see if a faulty ground is the problem…Thank you for your channel!!!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DragonKing914 says:

    Thank you for this video, I'm about to work on a similar issue with my moms recently purchased 2006 Pacifica, this gave me a solid base line.

    Yep, grounds can be interesting to find, worst without the wiring diagram .

    You da man!!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Laura Keller says:

    by the way, the parking lights work on left side/drivers side, but the high and low beams dont

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Laura Keller says:

    we have a 2008 , and no issues except the front drivers side headlight. bulb good. someone is telling us to replace the integrated power module. Is there any thing else you would suggest that would be simpler. , or how to verify this is the problem.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Solonar TV says:

    I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty that is having the same problem (driver's side low-beam out, but all other lights work). I replaced the bulbs and checked the fuses – all good. I'll have to get in there and check the grounds. Thanks for the video.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gabby Hall says:

    Thank you for making this video! My right blinker went out, then a few days later my left low beam, replaced the bulbs and nothing! Saw this video and had my husband try it and everything is working!!!! Keep up the good work! God bless!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gene Wawrzyniakowski says:

    Really appreciated this video. I have exactly the same problem with my 2002 Buick Regal GS, no left side low beam, all other lights on the left side worked. 1st I took the right side housing and plugged into the left side to see if it was the housing wires. The right side worked as intended, so I knew it was not the housing wires. Now that I see this, I will start checking where that low beam is supposed to be grounded. Thank you so much.

    2006 chrysler pacifica d2s headlights do not work with the engine running only when it is off

    Once again a South Main Auto video helped me to fix a repeat problem, you da man! Friend of mine kept taking her 2008 Corolla for no driver side low beam,(3x). They replaced the bulb 2x and the whole light assembly and still not fixed. I pulled the battery out so I could give the connector and the wires a “Eric check wiggle”. Confirmed Connector was corroded from battery acid. Spliced in a new connector, heat shrunk and taped and applied dielectric grease where needed. Cleaned off the battery terminals and under neath the tray was the corroded ground terminals, so probably other issues waiting to happen. Thank you

    Were to find those wire diagrams?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wayne jr's designs says:

    tried replacing my bad low beam pig tail…. then i had no power …… watched this video and as expected either i have a bad ground or a broken wire… ill find the problem n fix it and report back… eric o for 2021

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daisy Torres says:

    thanks. it fixed my problem only one side was not working. low beam everything else worked. 😃. Remember If I CAN do it YOU CAN do it 👩‍🔧

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hatfez says:

    So far, I've wired new grounds for the right turn signal, left turn signal, right driving light and most recently, the horn on my 2005 Caravan.
    She's still not in the crusher! (yet)

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harrison Hightower says:

    Could you let me know where G201 is? I fixed the three ground post's that you show in the video, but I am still having issues with my front turn signals not working.

    Nice job

    Thank you Eric O! I thought for sure I'd be dealing with a tipm issue in my wife's 2011 Avenger. Thanks to your help I was able to track down my headlight issue to a corroded ground. You're the man!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    1998 Honda Civic LX here. Exact same problem: Both high beams work, but only right low beam works. Both low beam fuses are OK. The problem started the night that I got an oil change. Coincidence? Or perhaps the ground or bulb's low beam filament got knocked loose?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Ross says:

    What was the back probe that you used?
    Also I have a Chevy Colorado that the headlights quit working. The fuel pump has no power and ignition won’t turn off sometimes.
    I know they have pass lock issues! Any ideas?
    Great video very in formative and a great tech.

    U r a true mechanic with a mind set of thinking and tracing down problems and not just throwing parts at something till u find what works. Wish more were like this, but it comes with guys and gals that have the mentality of putting the puzzle together.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Rohauer says:

    Typical

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vince says:

    You're a lifesaver. Same thing happened on my 2010 Avenger today. Though passenger low beam was defunct. 12v at the socket but no light. Every single forum post I looked at suggested a new TIPM, but figured since I had voltage, it may have been a ground issue. Hoping to track it down tomorrow, or at the very least, splice a new one like you said. Your videos are simply so helpful for the every day wrencher. Thank you!

    Chrysler and electrical problems are hand in glove. It's just a matter of time before the gremlins show up

    That little munchkin Trinity!! Ugh.. why must kids grow up?? Sheba just a pup too….

    Lol…wow that headlight assembly is so tight!! How do they expect a man's hand to fit in there?? Or totally break down the assembly to reach the bulb?? Engineers crack me up!!

    Ahhh. This is the Pacifica mentioned in other vids… the bad ground, etc. Lucky for you, otherwise you would've had to call Trinity back to change the bulb for you😂😂😂
