Headlights Problem

Hi guys

It's been a while since I posted my car had been fine until last week when I started to experience faulty headlights when I flick on the switch the headlights doesn't come on until after sometime flickering the switch however the indicators and everything is working fine. I removed the steering shroud over the weekend but couldn't find anything wrong put it back on and they were working just fine until they die completely today please help is it a relay or a faulty earth?

Re: Headlights Problem

smack the fuse box and see if they come on? This is SOP for when I need to switch on my head lights ... turn on lights with stalk, then smack fuse box. I do have a spare fuse box just need to install it.

Have a look at the thread just above this one on the same topic. Hopefully you will find some answers in the various posts on that.

Re: Headlights Problem

Today I installed the fuse box mentioned earlier. After installation I was happy to see that my headlights now work, however the happiness was short lived when I noticed that the highbeams now does not work.

So I took the old fuse box inside, took it apart and noticed that the one pin was loose. All the pins are crimped in the pc board not soldered. I measured with a multi-meter and the loose pin was indeed related to the headlights. I then cleaned the crimp and added a blob of solder on top of it. Reinstalled to the old box and now everything works 100%

I will probably now take the other one apart and see if I can do a similar fix and keep it as a spare.
