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.

i am getting a power but one of the lights is weak other is strong!!

If that's the case, either something is going to ground on the weak side or the ground itself is weak. Check the bulb plug after unplugging it, looking for dirt, corrosion or damage. If dirty or corroded, it can be cleaned. After cleaned, apply some dielectric grease to the plug before reintalling.

Always remember to never touch the bulb glass when changing bulbs! These bulbs heat up very rapidly. Skin or other oils can cause just enough insulation to result in uneven heating which can shatter the bulb.

Where is the headlight circuit breaker located on a 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier?

Most headlight circuit breakers are located in the headlight switches. Headlights are on a circuit breaker automatic reset so headlights don't go out if there is a problem and will blink on and off to get you off the road safely until you can fix the problem. Look for a short in the wiring between the headlight switch and the headlights themselves.

How do you troubleshoot a 1995 Dodge Neon that keeps blowing the front headlight?

I have had this problem on both my wife's 95 Neon, and my 2001 Ram truck. In both cases, it was literally blowing the halogen bulb to pieces. It turned out that both units were allowing moisture to enter into the plastic headlight assembly. When this moisture hit the hot bulb, it would blow up. On the neon, i just took the assembly out, and applied a thin film of RTV Black silicone around the seam where the clear plastic meets the main headlight body. The truck required a replacement headlight. Both problems solved.
