I have a 2006 chevy colorado and my drivers side headlight…

Hello i have a...

Hello i have a 2006 chevy colorado and my drivers side headlight isnt working. Ive replaced the bulbs, checked the fuse, and relays what else should i check?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

How many fuses are there to check? When i looked at the diagram in the fuse box it just showed the one fuse that controlled it and its good. I just replaced the bulbs so they are good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Colorado yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yeah ive been trying to this is the first problem i have had with the headlight. I replaced the bulbs and i have checked my relays and theyre good. My passenger side headlight will always come on but my drivers side wont.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thats it. Im just confused about how to fix it. I dont know if i need a new switch or if its something else.

Ok sounds good

Sorry about the wait. Do you have battery voltage present at the fuse when headlights are turned on?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Im sure i do. Its only one headlight thats not working. The bulbs have just been changed and the fuse is still good.

Does the high beam on the driver side work?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
my high beams work just fine

If you have battery voltage present at fuse #11 when headlights are turned and no voltage when headlight swutch is at off position that means the short is between the fuse box and bulb connector. Need to check the connector for any damage/ burn or deterioration. If good then the problem is break in the wiring

I havnt noticed any problems with the bulb connector its clean and undamaged. The wiring doesnt appear to be damaged either.

Battery voltage present at the fuse means that there is signal present from bcm, headlight switch abnd relay. The problem has to be in the wiring inbetween. Even if the wiring looks ok a continuity test will need to be done with a multimeter.
