S2 Headlight Problem!!!!!

Hi All,


HELP!!!!!!! I have a '91 S2 Cab and have got a strange problem with the nearside headlight - It is a euro car - The lights pop up and will work on main beam but on dipped beam there is nothing, I have tried changing bulbs and looking at fuses but these don't seem to be the problem!!!!

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the solution to this weird problem is???

Any help would be appreciated as the car is currently unavailable to drive at night and in the UK now it is dark alot of the time!!! Thanks in advance

I had a problem with the nearside light pod on my cab last summer.
Basically the wiring to the lights were very tightly strapped down with cable ties around the back of the pod and the up and down movement had caused the wiring to crack right where the loom was held down too tightly.

My problem was the high beam switch. I had no lights on low (dipped) beam, no fogs, but on high (main) beams I had light, and my fogs worked on parking lights. I pulled the turn signal/high/low beam switch and cleaned the assembly with electric contact cleaner (aerosol can) and put it back together and the lights worked again on low (dipped) beams.

944cabby has an experience similar to my own...it ended up being the wires that plug into the light itself, the connectors were a little bit loose. Made sure they were fully seated, problem solved!
