Check wiring on back of lights, exchange globes with someone who has same car, check fuses(they should be labelled), check voltage after the headlight switch with inexpensive multimeter. Use voltage tester with sharp probe to test voltages on the wires to see if power is getting to the lights and if not follow the wire back until you find voltage.

How do you troubleshoot a pool light if a new replacement bulb does not light?

We had a problem,year after year with every bulb we had replaced. My pool contractor would check the electrical current in the switch, in the connections under the plate in the deck, and in the fuse box. He would also check for a current in the bulb everytime. No problem would show up each time but the bulb would never stay lit for more than 30 seconds everytime it was replaced. It took me five years to get him to remove the light and low and behold, the contacts were rusted. Hope this helps. Lori
