Hello,I have a 2007 Jeep Patriot with a headlight problem. The high beams work but the right low beam doesn't. Replaced the right bulb with a dealer replacement. No difference. I checked the headlight fuzes and they are all good. I noticed the H13 connector on the right head light bulb had a little melted plastic around the center female contact, so I replaced the connector. Now I only have high beams on both lights and no low beams on either light.

Welcome to Just Answer Jeep my name is Mark.The headlamps on your Patriot are controlled directly by the underhood fuse box or TIPM as it is referred to. The TIPM is an electronic control module and is responsible for the circuit protection and operation of theselights.Sometimes fault codes can get stored in these TIPM's that pertain to these lights and that will make the lights stop working, so if you disconnect you battery for a few miutes that should erase any potential codes and restore the circuit function.If that makes no difference, then you may just have an internal failure of the TIPM or a wiring problem between the lights and the TIPM. I hope this information is helpful and let me know if you need further assistance with this.
Can the TIPM be replaced if it has an internal failure?
Absolutely.That is the only possible repair if the TIPM is deemed to have an internal failure. These can be scanned for fault codes by a shop to confirm this before you purchase a new one, if you choose to go that route.I hope this information is helpful and let me know if you need further assistance with this.
