Customer Question
2011 Nissan Sentra....

2011 Nissan Sentra. Headlight went out. I bought correct replacement bulb and now the high beam is working, but the low still is not. Do I need to disconnect the battery for a few minutes to let it "reset"? I have checked all fuses and relay switches. Thanks.

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

Yes and yes.

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

Yes. checked all relay switches, fuses and new bulbs.

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

No. Thanks.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you checked voltage and ground at the connector ?

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
