Both Hi & Lo beamss do not function. All fuses are OK and I am able
to get the Hi Beams to work by pulling - and holding the turn signal
lever. back The light swith operates all other lights normally (tail,
interior) and causes the warning horn when key is removed. I was told
that there is a bipass around the light switch for the temporary high
beams via holding the turn lever back and it is therefore very likely
my headlight switch and not the multifunction switch in turn signal -
would appreciate some confirmation before I go digging into the
problem and spending money.
Thanks for any information or advice.
Thanks for the feedback. I read somewhere that the tempory Hi Beam
(vial pulling back on the turn signal) has a "by-pass" power supply to
the headlights that does not go through the headlight switch, If this
is true it makes your advice more logical. As you said - that switch
is less expensive (but still over $100 in this model) and a lot easier
to get to than getting into the sterring wheel column.
If anyone else has further confirmation on this or more adice - please
Remove the headlight switch from the dash but leave the connector plugged
in. Turn the headlights on and backprobe the red with yellow trace wire with
a test light... (make sure your test light is not the self powered type and
that it has a good ground).
