Uprated Headlight Loom - No Sidelights - Solved

Post by haddock_n_chips » Sun Jul 12, 2020 3:22 pm

Hi All,

I bought one of those 2 relay uprated looms off the bay of e

Gone to fit it and I've got no sidelights!

I thought is was bringing them on at the same time as the dipped beam on both switch settings, but it actually wasn't, just dipped beam coming on both switch settings.

So read around and realised i need to unplug the dim/dip resistor with the two yellow wires under slam panel

Done this and now dipped beam comes on with setting 2 on the switch as you would expect but still no sidelights on setting 1!

Put the wiring back to standard and everything works as it should!

What am I doing wrong? Help!

W.

It's OK I've figured it out!

Helps if you check whether the sidelights bulbs aren't blown before starting...! 🤣🤣

What a numpty....
