ill narrow it down unless its a newer car and i mean like 98 up there is only 1 fuse for the headlight so it will not be a fuse .some cars have a ground wire that goes from the negative batt cable to the car body if this wire is broken that could happen .on the newer cars i have heard they are switching the fuses to one light each so i reckon if you was to replace a fuse it would be the one labeled to the headlight that don't work .this fuse box if it has separate fuses for each light would be under the hood of the car

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire?

Hello there fellow j-bodian owner, You should be able to just twist and pull the unit out the actual headlight. The harness should remain pluged to the car. Pull out the actual light bulb straight out from the harness, once that is done you then reverse the same procedure. Plug the light bulb into the harness and just twist it back in to the headlight. BOO YA!!!! your done! Light bulb size should be 9007, but you might wanna double check. -Yolanda

If you open the hood, you will see 2 bolts above the headlight assembly. remove the 2 bolts and lift the entire headlight assembly. as you are pulling the aasbly out you will see where the halogen light insert goes in. remove old light, install new, insert back in and reassemble. be careful not to touch glass part of light with hands, may shoten or end life of bulb. going off memory, have not replaced in my 99 sunfire gt in a while. hope this helps.
