Hopfully someone on here can help.
I have no headlights, high or low. I have parkers and fog lights all working fine. both headlight relays click over when you flick the switch, all fuses are good. when i turn the headlights on i have 12v at all 3 terminals on the plug for the bulb. one should be high 12 low 12 and a ground. I see no change whether im trying to run high or low beam. only changes when you flick the switch off and then theres nothing as there should

If you can locate your relays, check to see they have volts coming out. Most common mode of failure for relays is the coil still works, but the contacts are burnt. In other words, most failed relays still click, just cause they click don't mean they are good.

But daves also right, always check your grounds.

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!
