    hello am I looking at replacing the incorrect bulb? My lights at night are very bad so I was thinking of going to HID. when I turn on the car my DRL are the H7 bulbs (projector) , when I turn on the light switch I get the Daytime running lights. I remember replacing the H7 awhile ago thinking...

    Back in 2013 I submitted a post here about how my high beams stopped working on my '03 V6. I received some helpful comments and feedback and I did wind up installing a new signal stalk, which if I recall didn't solve the problem right away but at some point they started working again strangely...

    Hi everyone, so not long ago I installed HID Xenons Lights for the Fog Lights, and now the only halogen type of lights on my car remain the High Beams, therefore I am planning on upgrading them. But seeing the time required for the HID to get up to operating temperatures, I'd loose a big...

    Hi Everyone: My car headlights and fogs light works just fine but no high beam icon on dash and high beams not working. I'd greatly appreciate any insight you guys can provide about the cause of the problem and also what's the solution, or any recommendations you might have. I stopped taking...

    Hi guys, i know there are thousands of threads with light questions but this i couldnt find. I bought a 2001 passat b5 and i was going to replace the low beams to find out that it uses h3 (where the bulb looking dust cover is)? I know in the headlights the projector looking one is the low beam...

    I am a newbie here, so I will try to not sound smarter than i am. A few weeks ago my alternator blew on my 03 Passat 2.8 while i was driving on the highway and i limped it home. After having the alternator replaced, I now noticed 3 weeks later I do not have fog lights or high beams when...

    Hi guys, New user to the forums here, I am glad to say after reading a few articles from this site I was able to resolve the heating issues I was having with my 2003 Passat! Now I only have one issue with my car and I was hoping to seek some advice. Some time back my high beams started to...

    I know that much has been posted here about non working low beams. I have found none that were specific to the Basic 2.0T simple two position switch on off W/10 socket connector 7 pins on switch. I have also been able to find a wire diagram for this switch configuration. I believe that the...

    Hi everyone, Despite lots of research and 2 phone calls to my local vw dealerships, I have not been able to get confirmation regarding the lights on my passat. Question: Are the daytime running lights on a 2007 passat wagon the same as low beam in terms of power? I know many vehicles run...

    EDIT: Solution in post #6. A thorough search for this problem shows dozens of threads with exactly the same behavior, but not one ever said if it was fixed let alone how to fix it. I suspect they all ended up at the dealer because this problem has been kicking my butt all morning. Symptom is...

    After replacing the core support and wiring on my b5.5 the driver side low beam light is out. I've tried a new bulb and think it is something with the wiring. When the headlights are on the the low beam is out, but a different light comes on -- the small one in between the high beams and the...

    The control stalk on for my highbeams seems to be out, you know how you push it forward and it locks, well mine does not do that, also when you pull it back it does not temporarily engage the high beams. Any suggestions, or imput? Bulbs are good, low beams, DRLs, and turn signals are all...

    I have a 2003 Passat 2.8 and my high beams won't go on anymore. When I press the signal arm forward to turn on high beams nothing happens. I know the bulbs are good because if I pull on the signal arm they come on. Of course they don't stay on when I do this but at least it tells me that the...

    Have a 2003 Passat wagon with 4 motion. We are the second owners but have had the car since 2005. DRLs and low beams are not working. Checked the bulb, the fuses and switch with no luck. :banghead: Can anyone help me troubleshoot? Any information would be appreciated :bowdown:

    Hello all, First night time drive in the new Passat SEL with the standard US spec halogen lights showed the hi beams to be aimed way high, although the lo beam aiming looks to be just about right. A quick look under the hood revealed the lo beam vertical adjuster, but the hi beam vertical...

    For a while now my drivers side low beam light has not been working. It used to work from time to time but now its off all the time. The passenger side works just fine. I know people experience different problems with low beams on their Passats but this case is a little different: the wiring...

    Hi, noob here. Just drove a 2007 off the lot. I've been reading lots of posts here about low beams. But before I dig into troubleshooting my issue (which is that the low beams seem like they are either not illuminating well, or they are angled too far down), I'd like someone to look at this...

    i replaced the right h1 high beam bulb and it still will not come on. does the left bulb control the right somehow? should it be replaced first? i have an aftermarket halo headlight assembly that runs h1 brights, when i removed the right bulb, it was burned a little on the small plate and the...
