Thread: Headlights...

  1. #1

    Headlights...

    Don't drive your car for too long and crap goes wrong. This morning I had highbeams or nothing. Shit video:

    I installed this switch two years ago that worked ok until this morning. Fuse possible? Switch again?

    My lazy ass really doesn't want to take out the switch again.

    Check voltages at the connectors that go to the lamps before you start buying parts.

    There is a chance you have been driving around with just one working headlight. You wouldn’t have noticed a problem until the second one blew.

    Of course it could just be a fuse as well.

    High and low beams are on a separate fuse aren't they?

    Just pull and inspect every fuse. I still think you might have two bad headlights but it easiest to check all fuses first.

    I didn't let it stop me. D highbeams aren't annoying enough to bother anyone.

    If you do not submit a monthly proof of life, your car does not run.
