My driver’s side headlight socket needed to be replaced so I did so and changed both bulbs. However my headlight light on my dash is still on. Both lights are working however the passenger side socket looks a little corroded and a little damaged. Could the light be alerting me to a impending problem or does the light need to be reset?
Is that headlight light blue by any chance?
What are you insinuating??
Try switching the headlights from their bright mode to their dim mode a few times. If that doesn’t do the trick, probably a higher-than-allowed resistance connection somewhere in the circuit. The corroded and damaged socket you observed would be the likely suspect.
You know EXACTLY what I am insinuating!
Inquiring minds want to know!
While I have no desire for returning to the old dim sealed beams they were certainly far less complicated.
I’ve had more than a few folks come to me saying that their High Beams don’t work, with the solution to be to actually turn the headlights on- instead of running around with the DRL’s on…
I recently passed a small sedan after dark showing no rear lights. Dash lights on and DRLs. I’m changing Daytime Running Lights to Dim Running Lights with Dim serving a dual purpose by also describing the operator.
