There is a fuse for the high beam and a separate fuse for the low beam. Nissan came out with what I call kind of a hidden fuse panel which is located on the right (passenger) side of the vehicle. Nissan calls it an IPDM (intelligent power distribution module). It is located under the coolant resivour (can't spell). In any case below are some pictures and instructions on how to get to and remove it. Also is a picture of the fuse layout that is in there. The fuse for the high beam is the one marked with a red arrow and the fuse for the low is marked with a yellow arrow. If you need a larger picture(s), feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with all your information and I will be happy to send it to you. If both high and low beams are out you may be looking at a wiring issue. Hope this helps.....

you will find another fuse block under hood near windshield washer fill neck.remove the cover and it will show the location of headlamp fuses.most likely is a blown fuse.

Testimonial: "Thanks...I was looking inside the cover for a diagram, only to notice it was on the outside of the cover after removing the dirt. Fuse was bad."

SOURCE: 05 altima blows fuse for left headlight

Go out at night, or dusk, with a flash lite, replace the fuse with a higher amp or any spare fuse, turn out the lights, turn on the car lights, look for a spark somewhere, have people standing around engine comp, if it doesn't blow, wiggle wires, if it shorts out, you should see a spark, fix with tape, you should be all set.

SOURCE: How do I change the passenger side headlight bulb on 2001 Altima

Open up the hood, and go in behind the fixture where the light is located. Sometimes there is an access panel on top. Open it and reach down inside and grab the bulb’s socket. Twist the socket a quarter turn counter clockwise, and pull out the socket. Grab the bulb, and pull it straight out. To replace the new bulb, never touch it with your bare fingers, as this will greatly shorten the bulb's life, if it even work's at all. Use a tissue or something else in that order to handle the new bulb. Push the new bulb into the socket, put the socket back into the housing, and twist a quarter turn clockwise to secure the socket into the fix.Seems that you have to remove the coolant bottle(two screws), and also the unscrew the washer fluid bottle, after that you can reach the socket that holds the bulb. There is a wire that holds the bulb in. if you loosen the screw you can tip up the wire and be careful to leave it in place...also the long side of the wire seems to connect to ground wire for the light...

SOURCE: I replaced the blown driverside headlight bulb

Try this. right in front of the alternator is a black box. take the cover off and look at it inside and undeneath there is a diagram of fuses and relays. look down at the fuse block you just uncovered anfd you will see the fuses. there should be one labeled on the cover for "Head L/F and Head R/F".

check those and see if that works.

No low beam head lights


If you just want to replace the bulb yourself, this is a good website.
http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/Nissan-Altima-Headlight-Bulb/Nissan-Altima-Passenger-Side-Headlight.htm
If the website does't get your headlight fixed... You might have a blown fuse. It could be in the IPDM E/R location under the hood. This is next to the coolant bottle. Remove the coolant bottle with two screws and lift the cover to the IPDM E/R. Just set the coolant bottle aside for now. The low beam fuses are 49 and 50. They are 15A fuses. To be more precise, they are located on row 2, columns 2 and 3 (column 1 being closest to the fender of the car). Hope this helps.
