Passenger side front headlights not working after being in a flood

Asked by Oct 14, 2019 at 10:20 PM about the 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello my name is Thomas. I have a 2004 Saab 9-3
convertible. After rolling through a flood a few
months ago, the front headlights, fog lights and
low beams do not function anymore. The driver
side is fine but the passenger side lights do not
work. I had to replace the starter but I cannot seem
to get the passenger headlights to work. I checked
the bulbs and everything was fine. Any help would
be lovely

If it's not the bulb, possible causes are a corroded socket or a wire; hot or ground. I wouldn't expect a single light out to be caused by a bad headlight relay, module, headlight switch, or dimmer switch. Try spraying contact cleaner into the bulb socket and cleaning any corrosion off the bulb. If this doesn't work, you should use a multi-meter to check currant back to ground and to the fuse box.
