No main beam or full beam

Recommended Posts

Neither side working on main or full beam. Sidelights do work. Fuses all seem to work, thoughts?

Thanks

Kev - probably your flasher stalk - if the contacts within this bend/ wear slightly out of shape you loose your beams! To test this theory you'll have to remove your stalk and fiddle! Do a search on "Dead lights" as Monkey Chap did a good diagram showing how this chaos unfolds!

Both bulbs can go at the same time (happened to me) leaving just sidelights.  Thought the worst re. needing new stalk etc but replaced both bulbs as the first step and all was fine.  With trying as first cheap fix and will have spare bulbs if not.

Both bulbs are OK as can get them to light up by applying power at the fuse box.  Have looked at the indicator switch and it is:

Do these look correct or is something wrong?

I have also removed and stripped the main light switch, nothing obviously wrong or broken.  Will clean it up and test it to see if I can identify what might be wrong.

Cheers

And the Lord said let there be light.  And lo, the man did bow his hid under the dash and re-attach all the wires for, verily, he had stripped the switch and rebuilt it in it's own image.  The man had cleaned the plug and made the connections true, for when he did secure the positive and negative leads to the battery, there appeared a heavenly glow ahead of him, as if lighting his path to salvation.  The man praised the heavens and the heavens responded in kind by showering him with water so he could move to shelter and bask in the work that the Lord had found for him.  The man was certain the Lord would find further work for him, probably the lumpy tickover for starters, and the man knew that this truly was a compassionate Lord.

Here endeth the thread.
