Headlight out.

So my headlight isn’t working. I’ve replaced the bulb twice. All the other bulbs work in the casing. The high beam, the little yellow one etc. Could it be a fuse? Or is the whole housing bad? But if the housing was bad the others wouldn’t work correct?

Sorry I still don’t know how to use this forum. I have a 2007 Touareg. My headlight and high beam not working. Only the little yellow light on the end. Could it Be the whole headlight housing or a fuse ?

Ok. 2007 Touareg. Don't know if it is the halogen or the HID, but we can skip that for now.

You could have something as simple as a fuse. Need to check those first.

You could have a bad bulb. The troubleshooting will depend on if you have halogen or HID headlights.

The headlights are known for going bad. For some reason the insulation will literally fall off of the wires that are located and sealed inside the headlight. For the most part, the only solution to that is a new headlight.

There is a small wire harness that costs about $50 that hooks directly to to back of the light in the T1. Your 2007 is probably a T2, but that is a crossover year. That T1 small wiring harness also goes bad a lot.

If the bottom of the headlight is flat, it is a T1. If the bottom of the headlight has a teardrop shape, it is a T2.

See how quickly things get complicated.

Thanks everyone. Turns out I was checking the wrong fuse. It was indeed a fuse.
