headlight switch is messed up
Posted 07 March 2004 - 12:39 AM
Now my both filaments (high and low) are stuck on together when they should be on low beam. High beam is high beam.
So now I'm driving around with high beams and even brighter high beams.
I noticed the screws for the plastic go into the bottom of the highbeam/blinker switch. Has anyone else had problems like the ones I'm having?
And has anyone ever rewired the highbeam switch to a 3 way toggle switch? I'm wondering what wires I would have to splice into?

As far as the toggle switch goes I am all for that idea! put a volt meter on the back of the headlight switch with the lights on in low and high beams and that should give you some idea of what wire(s) to use for accessory. you can use the battery for power but you will have to manualy shut off the lights every time they are turned on. I would suggest useing something from the fuse panel (stock fuse for headlight), which will let the lights be on only in the run position. Or use the radio or some other accessory fuse which will let the lights be on in the run or acc. position, but will go off with the key regardless of the switch position.
It will help preserve your battery on those drunken nights when you forgot to turn them off. j/k
keep us posted
