Pop the hood, see the black covers that go across the front over the headlights and radiator? take off the part that covers the headlight, there should be 2 little screws that… you can grab with your finger and twist. The cover will come up and there will be a socket you can remove can, remove the light socket. . Take those out and replace the light bulb. Put back together in reverse order.
If what you are talking about is the small cylinder shaped one, just push in the round recessed button on top with a pen or something.
Answer . in the fuse box under the hood, the label is under the inside of the lid of the fuse box. or it could be under the dash on the drivers side way up under the dash. … Check a repair book, I believe "breaker" is part of headlight switch. On my 89 there is ground wire on body in front of battery. A bad ground connection will cause breaker to activate and headlights go off.
Amateur with some ideas:. 1-could be fuse in box under dash on driver's side. 2-my trunk light did the same, traced wire that had worn in a spot from constant opening and sh…utting - could the headlight wiring have same wear and tear?
For the up/down aiming there is a screw (need a t5 or t15..something like that) on the top center of each light. You have to remove the plastic covering above the headlights. …There is another screw in the vertical position on the ouside edge of the headlight for left right aiming. Hope this helps!
It is usually located in the headlight switch. It is a automatic reset circuit breaker. When a short occurs it rapidly blinks the headlight circuit on and off so the headlight…s are not completely lost to allow you to pull off the road safely at night.
Go out to your breaker box (usually in the garage or in the basement), open the cover and look down at all the switches. One or more of them has been switched off. Flip it bac…k to its on position.
Check repair book but my 89 has circuit breaker in headlight switch. There is ground wire on body in front of battery. Bad ground will cause breaker to activate so unbolt grou…nd and clean connection. Could have bad dimmer switch which is on column under dash and may be hard to remove without lowering column. I unplugged old switch, plugged in new dimmer switch, set it to dim, and wired new switch to column so now only have dim lights as old switch is connected to activator rod which goes to turn signal/dimmer handle.
A shunt trip breaker is reset the same way as an ordinary breaker, move the handle to the full off position and then to the full on position. First check the tripping circuit,… sometimes a latch relay is used to hold the breaker shunt trip coil in the trip position. If this is the case then reset the latch relay first.
If you know what caused the breaker to trip then remove it from the circuit. Then open panel door and locate the tripped breaker as the one that is no longer in the full ON po…sition. Some have a colored flag that appears when tripped. Now move the toggle to the full OFF position and then to the full ON position.
