Use a 12 volt tester and turn thr lights on and see if you have power, then make sure the bulb is a high/low beam.

There are separate fuses for each headlight, they should be in a fuse box which is normally located under the bonnet.

What would cause a headlight not to work on a Corsa SXI

there is no fuse i beleave just for the right headlight, i presume your right headlight is not working, do you have xenon or halogen bulbs, if you have xenon then the most likely cause is headlight xenon control modules, if the module is the cause i would sudjest replacing both headlight modules, and the front right xenon bulb. good luck.

a possible solution would be to check ground wires. The driver and passenger side front lights have separate ground wires in wiring harness. The result of having ground wire disconnected is dimming headlights.

you probably would first start out with replacing the headlight bulbs then work to the dimmer switch and electrical system from there you probably would first start out with replacing the headlight bulbs then work to the dimmer switch and electrical system from there

take that head light out and look at the connection to see if the prongs are corroded and not making a good contact. or check for a bad ground or no juice at the plug

headlight switch has a short in it and needs replacing This is very common on older ford trucks.

Try replacing a bulb. There are instances where a short in the wiring will cause the bulbs to burn out. If that does not work the headlight switch is the next step.

water in passenger floorboard, where is the hose that would cause this?

If it's the front passenger side ,I would say your heater core is leaking .

You Have a bad headlight, it's common when a headlight burns out for only the high beam to work, solution change your headlight.

I would try replacing the fuel pressure regulator. That was my problem.

Something was done incorrectly. Retrace the repair.

A damaged heater core will cause coolant or water to leak onto the passenger floorboard.

No, but the fuse probably would. I would check that first before you get crazy with other things.

If only one is out, its probably a bulb. If both are out its probably a fuse. For headlight bulb information see sources and related links below.

after replacing the stearing colum what would cause it not to start. You may have disconnected the ignition switch.

A short to ground in the positive side of the headlight circuit. Most likely by a failed headlight switch. Ford is notorious for faulty healdight switches.
