Sounds like a relay, I don't know for sure though. Fire it up to keep it charged go to a petrol station so your not getting wet and you're lit and and have a look. It's got to be easy to get rid of if it's come on easily.

Something has changed to cause that to happen, probably a short or stuck relay so give things a wiggle and a knock to change it back.


Hope this helps mate, awful being stranded alone.

Try the buttons on the right hand pod for fog lights.


And check the indicator stork hasn't been knocked in to main bright lights mode if that makes sense

If L/H makes no difference then the R/H on is pulling through the L/H light.... Could be short in relay...... sounds like it is using the L/H lighting as it's earth??

Usually an earthing problem with cars as old as ours........


It probably is to do with the earthing mate - don't forget that it's the earth connection that is responsible for switching from dipped to main beam. Hence if you have HIDs and simply earth the HID wire, the dipped lights stay on when you switch to main (and still flash with mains when you operate the headlamp flash).



I have something to say............ It's better to burn out than to fade away..... :tt2:
