Dipped headlights stopped working

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Trevor Appleton, Dec 6, 2004.

  1. After 4 years from new I have my first electrical prob. Lights all OK this
    morning. On starting tonight both dipped headlights not working. Offside
    sidelight not working.

    From the handbook this impliers three seperate fuses namely 31, 32 and 35.

    Why should they all go together?

    Iff you still have full beam then they probably haven't. Sounds like the
    dim-dip resistor has failed.

  5. sounds like a bypass job is the way forward especially as I've never used or
    seen the point of sidelights (they don't make a ha'porth of difference in
    seeing a vehicle coming towards U)

    Even more pointless are the morons who use sidelights and front foglamps
    quite what that is all about is beyond me.

    Rant mode over...

    When 306's dim-dip resistor failed failed my Pug dealer fitted both a new
    resistor and a bypass in case it fails again.

    I've always understood that the "side lights" were for parking purposes
    where vehicles have to be left with warning lights. That's what they were
    for 45 years ago when I started driving.
