Got in the car started it up put headlights on - they came on for a second and then went out :?
Still have both side marker lights


So far i have:
(under bonnet fuse box)
Changed the lighting relay
Changed both 20amp fuses (1 for each light)

Taken the connectors off all the lights and checked them put them back on.

Still no main and high beam.......

Any suggestions would be appreciated. :)

Check if the wires have power and earth
Check all the fuses inside and out

hmmmm :think:
checked the lighting fuses - will have to get hold of a multimeter tomorrow
@newkid stopped by and we got the full beams working but there seems to be a bad connection there or something.
still no headlights....

possibly something to do with the switch/stalk at the steering wheel being burnt out - ive got a spare set of stalks but open to suggestions.

guess i will be able to check things over better in the daylight :)

Hi Nick, this happened to me last year. The sidelights were on but no dipped or main beams. Given my lack of skills, I went to see Jason and, as Drax mentioned, he traced it to a wire (or wires, I can't remember) that wasn't earthed properly.

Check 12v feed to relay, and switch feed from stalk to relay. Should be quite revealing!!!
