Post High beam lights, fog lights, rear demister and fan for heater/air-condiioner

The high beam headlights have stopped working, at the same time the front fog lights have also stopped working. The rear window demister and fan for the air conditioner/heater have also stopped working at the same time.


Could these issues be connected, fuses do not appear to have blown. Has anyone got any ideas or experienced similar?

Re: High beam lights, fog lights, rear demister and fan for heater/air-condiioner

Welcome to the Forum!

Not so sure it will help: but there's a Guide for a similar issue. It may give you pointers -- at least until someone who's had some sleep comes along....

Otherwise, I'd be looking at dirty/loose earth connections, to begin with -- especially the one on the inside of the inner, nearside wing. (It's a multi-connector, that the headlamps go to, and possibly the fuse-box, behind the nearside headlamp: hence my suspecting it, even with fuzzy, tired braincells....)

Good luck: and let us know how you get on; or if you have any further questions...!

PS: Have you actually tested the fuses...?
Thanks oldhammer thanked for this post

Re: High beam lights, fog lights, rear demister and fan for heater/air-condiioner

Hi,
As homeward has said.. check the fuses.
I've had the odd Ninja fuse catch me out over the years.. fuses can look good to the eye
But sometimes when you pull them out and test with multimeter there fubard..

So its best to pull fuse and replaces with new one..

Lights are run off Relayed.. so have a listen to see if these click when fog lights are triggered..


Heater blower couid be a separate issue as above linked by homeward check the blower motor connection plug over..there earth point is weak and melts..

Sorry for bad spelling.. I'm using one of these new fangled electronic chalk boards..
