Customer Question

Changed a low beam bulb that had blown. Now have no power to the plug. Can't find a fuse for headlamps and all fuses appear to test okay. Help.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: Volt meter says almost zero.
JA: What year is your Volt?

Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer, when you activate the turn signals, do you hear the characteristic sound of them? the click under the dashboard?

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 7 days ago.

Dear customer the flashing lights work with a component known as the flasher of the lights is basically a relay which causes the flashing of them, this component is the most frequently damaged, but it is also good to check all the fuses as it is common that when we replace the bulbs there is a rise in voltage and blow the fuses to protect the electrical system.

I hope this info to be helpful, my goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.

Kind regards, Sebastian.
