Electrical prob or fuse?
Ok im pretty pissed...yesterday my passenger headlight died on me. I went to autozone and WAS gonna buy one and it costs about $15 for one h7 bulb. So i decided not to buy it...I figured i'd jus use my fogs as headlights for a lil while. I got home checked out my lights, turns out...out of 4 bulbs "2 fogs and 2 headlight bulbs" only one headlight was working which was the driver. both fogs are dead. Could that be an electrical problem or fuse? or could it be just coincidence? all my bulbs are stock from the factory...

um, i only changed my door lock fuse once so there are 2 places you can look. under the Hood on the right side of the engine bay. there are 2 plastic compartments. there's also one inside on the passenger side of your center console. use your owner's manual to reference which goes to the headlight. i have a feeling it's the one inside but check for yourself...

Well if you just bought your car, you shouldn't have to buy new bulb! go to the dealer and ask tehm to replace them for free!

you still have your bumper-to-bumper warranty. they should fix just about everything until it expires.
