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.

Troubleshoot a problem by being patient and understanding. Do as much fact finding as possible and do not assume that the problem is petty or a lie.

As an analyst anyway, the first step of problem solving is to troubleshoot it.

If the server crashes and you are remote, then there is no connection to troubleshoot unless you can get someone on the phone at the site to help with problem analysis.

could be headlight fuse or headlight switch.

could be the the headlight switch, dimmer switch, headlight relay, or a problem with the wiring

Check fuse Check operation of door switches Check operation of headlight switch

Need to know what kind of problem you are having.

Check the fuses in the power distribution box under the hood. If the fuse is okay, check the bulb.

Check the back of the headlight switch. They had a problem with the electrical plug to the switch melting down due to high resistance (poor connections).

Do you have the factory installed alarm? What is the problem your having.

Run a ground wire to that headlight. If it gets brighter, there is a problem with the ground in the wiring harness.

There are check out charts that the mechanics have access to that will lead to the problem

What exactly are you looking for? What is the nature of the problem with the pump? Restate your question and you may get an answer.

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.

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.

use an Ohm meter to check the bulb for continuity and a volt meter to make sure that it is getting voltage in order to light up

Get a repair manual and a box of tools, troubleshoot the problem and follow the directions to repair it.
