Welcome to Justanswer, My name isXXXXX am here to help.
My name is Keith.
So only the drivers low beam
what readings are you getting on the socket plugged in?
Not terribly familiar with using voltmeter. Checking directly to battery - about 12.3 volts. Checking the wiring to the socket, can't get any consistent reading on low or high beam.
Seems to be less than 1 volt.
I cut the wires leading to the socket and checked the socket directly to the battery. Worked both low and high.
I believe the problem is with G300 on this diagram
OK. So, what does G300 do?
Where is it and how do you replace it?
The is the ground you will want to clean it using a wire brush and make sure the connection is good
I am trying to find a image of the location but you should be able to trace the black wire from the connector to the ground
Here is the location G300 on diagram
The wire bundle goes underneath the electrical box between the battery and the driver's side fender. How much do I have to remove in order to trace this wiring back to the ground?
Is that showing a location up under the dash?
Yes left kick panel
The low and high connect here but in different spots I suspect there is a bad connection to this connection not giving a good ground
Is this accessible, and identifiable by a novice, without removing the dash? Is there a part to be replaced, or just removed / cleaned / re-connected?
if this checks out then you will need to go to the power for the low beam and make sure it has a good connection to the actual fuse located #6 20 amp in the fuse junction block
this is accessible and will need to be removed cleaned and then reconnected With this diagram you should have no trouble locating the G300 ground and cleaning and reconnecting
Meaning check the fuse, or check the connection to the fuse block?
Bad ground is the most common fault for this problem and yes
Let me know if you need anything else. Please take a moment to press the green ACCEPT button so I get credit for my work. Thanks in advance Danny
I'm new to this. What if this doesn't solve the problem?
And, did that "yes" mean that I have to remove the fuse block and check the connections?
You can come back and ask follow up free of charge
You will need to check that fuse if the fuse is good then you will need to check the connections
You can return to this question either by the link above or the one you have in your email every question sends a email with the link to the question which can be accessed after hitting accept
Is there any trick to removing the fuse block. And if I need to ask follow up questions, what is your availability and how do I get back to you?
You should not have to remove it but if you do its pretty simple there are a few bolts and you should be able to access the connections and check them clean and fix if needed
I get back to you right away if you need further help
Understood, and thanks. I won't be trying this until daylight as I don't have a lighted area to work on this.
I assume I can re-connect by email?
No problem like I said just go to the link in your email
I will reply promptly anytime during the morning day until the late evening
Thanks & good night.
