2007 Patriot

Hey guys, the drivers side headlight went out. I replaced the bulb, still isnt coming on. I switched the driver and passenger bulbs, but the drivers side is still out. I went to the fuse box, and pulled the fuse for the head lamp (cavity 36, 30 amp pink) but the passenger headlight was still on. Now, when i pulled the fuse, shouldnt both lights go out?do i have the wrong fuse, or do you guys have any other ideas? Thanks!

No i mean your headlight/daytime running lamps will go out on whichever side the blinker is on, while on.

The headlight never comes on, neither as daytime running or as a headlight when i turn them on.

Alright so after a few weeks of driving around with one headlight out, i finally got around to replacing the socket, as well as a couple of inches of wiring. I now have a working highbeam, but not lowbeam. Any suggestions?

These cars have a (stupid) electronic controller for the headlamps that can sometimes fail. It's a brain box type thing under the hood. You may need a dealer to diagnose it for you. If it's bad, bend over and grab your ankles...I think the part is around $800. One of the reasons I'm so thrilled Daimler no longer has any part in Chrysler.

Try rechecking the rest of the wiring/circuits/harness between the TIPM and the bulb.
