problem with headlight circuit
Posted 10 April 2006 - 02:35 PM
I was trying to fix the dashlight on my 78 brat... I figured it was just a bulb so I pulled one out of my spare instrament cluster, but that didnt help... so I cheked the headlight switch fuse and it was burning hot after only a short while... (have a nice fuse shaped burn on my finger)... everything works except the dash light, but the fuse gets dangerously hot. Has anyone else had this problem? Any idea what is wrong with it?

The resistance in the stock fuse block is too great and it heats up. In many cases melting the plastic plug on the back of the fuses. It could cause the lights to fail and an accident to occur.
Separate it and wire in a heavy duty harness.
