What would cause only the left low beam on a 1993 Pathfinder to go from 12 v without the bulb to 0 volts with it?

I don['t know exactly what you are doing but check the ground of that light. The ground is good since the high beam works and it was checked. I looked for a relay and could not find one. From on-line research, the headlight switch may be the problem. For now I performed by-pass surgery - hooked the low beam from the left to the right and now it works fine. Now to see if the circuit can handle the load. It sounds to me that you have a (what is called in the field) "dead short". I suggest that you check you connection for the ground wire. If you have cross-wired it then it may come back to haunt you in the future causing you much more grief then you want. If you suspect it's the head light switch then why does it work when you cross-wire it. If it was the headlight switch then it would NOT work at all on either side because the headlight switch does NOT have a left and right side. LOL. Again I suggest that you check your Ground.... i may be mistaken but arent the low beams connected from side to side anyway, just make sure the wire you used is heavy gauge... you should be fine.

No. The current is more important for safety then the voltage. If you have 1 amp @400 volts it would cause less harm them 2 amps @ 220 volts

The formula you are looking for is Amps = Volts/Resistance. I = E/R.

How many amperes are there in 120watts?

It depends on how many volts there are. Watts = amperes times volts. If there were 120 volts, there would be 1 ampere. If there were 240 volts, there would be 0.5 amperes. If there were 12 volts, there would be 10 amperes.

How many watts in 2.5 volts?

There are no "watts" in 2.5 volts. Wattage is the result when you multiply volts times amps. You cannot answer the question with only one quantity (in this case 2.5 volts). If you have 1 amp and 2.5 volts, they you would have 2.5 watts. If you had 2 amps and 2.5 volts, they you would have 5 watts. The formula is Volts X Amps = Watts.

It would turn without a load, but its performance would be poor, meaning it would not be able to turn much of a mechanical load.

Can you plug a 100 volt power tool into a 110 volt outlet?

Never heard of a power tool that runs on 100 volts AC. It would have to be 108 to 120 volts or 220 to 240 volts. It will work on the 120 volt outlet if is it 60 hertz in the U.S. or 50 Hrtz in some other countries. If it is 50 Hrtz then do not use it in the U.S. without a converter.

How many volts in two D batteries?

It depends: In Parallel, there would be 1.5 volts. In Series, there would be 3.0 volts. Besides the voltage difference, in parallel, the amperage would double, but in series, the amperage would stay the same.

How can you convert 240 Volts to 12 Volts?

You would need a transformer specially made to do this. Of course, this transformer would need a rectifier, as I am assuming that you need 12 volts DC.
