    Hey guys, I have a vx 2001 and it has Monaro headlights and tailights, no issues with the back but front headlight on the left side has completely killed both of the normal driving lights in only the left side, but it still works on high beam? I'm confused and worried it's a bad wiring connection or something because the globe seems undamaged
    Am I using wrong globes? The current light that isn't working is H1 12v 55w The car was a complete mess when I first got it this is about the last issue left to fix.
    Photo of the globe is a bit blurry but you can tell it's still a good globe,
    Anyone who could help is really appreciated ☺️

    Have you checked both headlight fuses in the engine bay?
    It isn't clear whether this is a recent occurrence or if they have never worked?

    It was not working when I first brought the car, I changed the globes and it worked well for about 3 months and now this has just happened over last 2 days.
    Also this is the other second light that is in my left light (the left side,broken one)
    Also thank you I will check those fuses first thing.

    Not sure what you mean it's still a good globe. Have you taken one of the globes that stopped working on the left side and put it in the right side?
    What brand globes are you using- sometimes the cheap no name ones blow very quickly.

    I mean the globe is not blown only one of them is. They are GE brand and I have not yet done that test but thank you I'll also test it that way.

    Thank you for the help.
    The problem is solved, put a different relay fuse in and the left light is now working again
