My left headlight will not work even after replacement. Why not?

Asked by Mar 07, 2017 at 11:04 AM about the 2001 Buick LeSabre Limited Sedan FWD

My left headlight went out and I replaced both.  Left would still not work.  I switched them and both worked for a few days, now the left is out once again.

Possibly a bad ground, if you have a meter, check the wires at the connection.

Sorry.....second part of answer, there is a relay involved and that could be bad....there should be a relay box somewhere under the hood. the relays are usually marked and all relays are the same, so find the headlight relay and switch it with another relay....if that fixes it go buy a replacement relay

I will give this a try. Thanks so much for your input.
