    Astra G One Headlamp not working

    Astra 2002 turbo coupe - Drivers low beam headlamp not working . Bulb is fine . Not electricity at connecting socket . it sounds like a relay not working but can only find reference to a high beam relay in the fuse box.
    Can anyone help before I end up wiring it up to the other side ?

    Have you checked the fuses?
    there's a fusebox in the engine bay too. a long rectangle with about 8 fuses in.

    F6 & F24

    Check the under dash fuses, one of those controls the light in question

    This fault comes up a bit on cars with bulb check control panels and i'm convinced this may be where the problem is. Trouble is no ones reported back and i've not been able to test one myself

    So you got 12v leaving the fuse but not at the connector?

    It sounds like a broken/corroded wire, I'd suggest carrying out a continuity test from fuse 6 to the connector and check the earth path.

    I wouldn't recommend patching it ti the other side as you might find the wiring may burn out or the fuse would keep blowing due to excess current being drawn.

    I can't be sure about power at the fuse Just tried to check the fuse board with a multimeter but the prongs dont fit in , no reading on 6 fuse but also cant get a reading on 24 but if I take 24 out passenger headlight goes out - implies the prongs dont fit in. Also changed fuses around so definately the fuse is ok.

    Didn't think the Astra G had a dipped beam tell tale light, just checked my wifes 02 2.2 coupe and that doesn't

    Or are you on about the blue main beam tell tale
