Usually when this happens the side that is dim has a deffective ground to that bulb socket. Please check the socket for contamination and follow the wires with your eyes and hands to determine if the ground wire for that socket is close by and remove and clean it then reinstall that wire.

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.

How do you change a passenger side front headlight bulb in a 2001 volkswagen jetta?


What would you do if you had to change the entire headlight and not just the bulb on a Honda Civic EX?

You have to take the bumper down. The headlight assembly is held by four bolt I believe. Two on each bottom sides and two on top. The two top bolts can be taken out without removing the bumper. The passenger side headlight is much easier to remove than the driver side being the reservoir for the power steering fluid is in the way. Good luck

What is artificial passenger?

An artificial passenger (AP) is a device that would be used in a motor vehicle to make sure that the driver stays awake. IBM has developed a prototype that holds a conversation with a driver, telling jokes and asking questions intended to determine whether the driver can respond alertly enough. Assuming the IBM approach, an artificial passenger would use a microphone for the driver and a speech generator and the vehicle's audio speakers to converse with the driver. The conversation would be based on a personalized profile of the driver. A camera could be used to evaluate the driver's "facial state" and a voice analyzer to evaluate whether the driver was becoming drowsy. If a driver seemed to display too much fatigue, the artificial passenger might be programmed to open all the windows, sound a buzzer, increase background music volume, or even spray the driver with ice water.

Can a passenger in an uninsured vehicle that was at fault sue the driver of the vehicle that was hit?

Only if the other driver was at fault. If the driver of the uninsured vehicle was at fault, the injured person would have to recover damages from them.

Would the driver be responsible for the passenger's medical bills if the accident was the drivers fault and the driver had a seat belt on and walked away unharmed but the passenger had no seat belt on and got injured?

Probably, but the defense will argue that the passenger contributed to his injuries by not wearing the seat belt which the driver provided.

Would a excluded driver be cover if not driving and riding as a passenger in his employers vehicle?

Being named as an excluded driver means that you are not covered as the driver, and are not allowed to drive that vehicle. It doesn't mean that you can't be a passenger in the vehicle. If you were a passenger and were injured your injuries should still be covered under the insurance (whether or not the driver was your employer). If you were working at the time you may be eligible for workers compensation, also, but at the least your injuries should be covered.

Is the passenger at fault when they grab the steering wheel and cause a car to lose control and crash?

It would depend upon the circumstances. If the passenger is a fully functioning adult, then yes, it would likely be the passenger's fault. If, however, the passenger was under the charge of the adult driver (such as a young child, or an adult with diminished mental capacity), then it could be argued that the driver created the circumstances in which the crash was liable to occur by placing the passenger in the front seat, and the driver could therefore be found to be at least partially at fault.

First thing I would check is the fuse panel. Usually located under the dash.

Is it illegal to ride with an unlicensed driver?

Laws vary from state to state. However, I don't know of anywhere that it is illegal, but it is very irresponsible. If a passenger is in the car when the driver is pulled over for driving without a licence, the passenger may be ticketed or jailed, depending on the state, and the passenger would more than likely get a ride home and nothing more. If you know that the driver of a vehicle is not licensed by the state, you should not ride with that driver. If you are in a car accident, the driver cannot be insured if they are unlicensed, and you could be liable for your hospitalization, ambulance and physician's fees.

Can Person Injury Protection coverage be denied to the passenger if the driver of the vehicle was an excluded under the policy?

The passenger must first look to his or her own PIP (or no-fault) coverage for medical/wage loss/replacement services coverage. If the passenger does not have insurance then he or she looks to his or her household: does the passenger live with someone with auto insurance? If yes, then the passenger is covered by the resident relative's PIP. The driver's insured status does not dictate the passenger's status. However, if the driver is "an excluded" - I take it you mean he or she was not named on the policy as a driver - the passenger may have difficulty bringing a liability claim. Did the driver have the owner's permission to use the vehicle? If so, then he or she would be covered as a permissive user. However, if the driver was a young driver resident of a household - a kid using mom and dad's car - and the parents did not tell the insurance company there was a chance the kid would use the car - then you may run into coverage problems. Sometimes people try to save money by not listing a young driver on the policy. The insurance company can deny coverage in that instance.

If a child was killed in a car accident where the driver did not own the car but the owner's daughter was a passenger who is responsible?

First of all sorry to hear of the child's death . Secondly get a lawyer If the driver was not the owner it would depend on the facts related in the accident . For example if the driver was not authorized to take the car or was speeding/drunk etc the driver would definitely be at fault . The owners daughter being a passenger should have nothing to do with who is responsible for the accident unless she contibuted to it . good luck
