Need to find lighting relay in a Discovery 1

Headlights died on switch-on, replaced dim-dip relay in passenger footwell and also main lighting switch. Result is dim-dip relay chatters when switch in sidelight position, no headlights in second position, but have sidelights. Is there another relay, bearing in mind that this is a Commercial (van) and may be a Disco 1/2 hybrid.

    Your alternator is shot and is giving out to much current. This has blown the bulbs which then causes the relay chatter

The alternator is shot and is pumping out to much juice ... this has blown the bulbs and causes the relay chatter. I'm afraid it is a new alternator and bulbs :(

SOURCE: Audi A3 Sidelights

do you mean the little light on the fender? if so it should pop right out by pushing the lense forward against the spring and then pulling it out. the one in the bumper and the fog light are a bit more dificult, you have to get access to the inside of the bumper by removing the fog light black assembly.

SOURCE: no sidelights working

The 15 amp TAIL fuse is for the sidemarkers, the license plate, etc. There is a taillamp relay.
Both of these circuits are powered by the 50 amp AM1 fuse.

The fog lights are powered by the 15 amp FR FOG fuse.

The inst panel is powered by 3 fuses: 7.5 amp GAUGE, 15 amp DOME and 7.5 ECU-B.

Please check all of these, and if they are all good, please get back to me for more info.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do you remove front grill on Susuki grand vitara

Remove the clips that secure the top of the radiator grille. Pry up the center piece and pull up the clip to remove it. There are 5 screws on the bottom of the grille piece that you have to take out. BE VERY CAREFUL with the grille when pulling it out as it idoesn't take alot of force to break it. Next undo the screws that secure the headlight housing (3 total), there is also something called a guide pin on the housing. Detach the connector from the bracket by squeezing the lock tip with pliers. That should give you complete access to the lamps inside the housing.

How to adjust headlights for a 2008 dodge ram 1500

Extra lights should be the same height as the main lights of the vehicle. They must go out when you dip the head lights so you will need a relay for this to happen. They must also be independently switched so that they can be turned off Adjustment ---the center of the beam should be do higher than main lights at 3 feet from the lights and should point slightly to the passenger side of the road

1985 Nissan pickup- All headlights test good. On

Sounds like your ground wire is broken (which could be broken, overheated, loose or corroded) If the color of the copper has changed(looks gray) or is corroded then you must replace the plug.

The passenger headlight on my 98 Mitsubishi Eclipse is very dim. I have replaced the bulbs; however, it is still very dim. I am told that I have a loose ground wire. How do I determine which is the ground...

Behind the headlights there is a plug that has 3 wires to the dip beam and 2 wires to main beam and the black wire is the earth so use a test light and put 1 end of test light to earth the other to either wire and turn on head lights it should light up if not then test the other wire if it lights then the other wire you tested was the one that isent any good .. so what you do is either clean contacts on the back of the globe plug or just put a wire from that wire on plug to any earth on the body or engine bolt and the light will come bright and make sure its fitted good and your job is done,, you now have goodlights.
Have a goodday Ron

Rover 214i Dipped headlights not working.Main beam works. new switch . all fuses Ok. no power going into fuses. Bulbs checked and Ok. Is there a head light relay in the drivers footwell?

no relays in footwell ,but as i remember with these cars they have a problem with the multiplug that goes into the fuseboard ,happens with mine as well the ac stops and the left hand turn signal just flashes fast and the back flasher light doesnt work .quick soloution without playing and thats to run a feed from the battery to the fuse .saves a lot of messing about trying to take fuse board out and close the connections up a bit .Just bare the wire back a bit push in with the fuse on the feed side .Easy

Head lights wont turn off

if you are saying the front side lights are going off but the headlights remain on ? then could you try this ? put the h/lights on main beam mode then whilst on main beam turn off lights if h/lights go off now ? then with lights still off put onto dipped beam with the switch/stick if h/light come on it is most probably the dipped beam headlights relay that has gone faulty as the h/lights have 2x relays 1for dip +1 for main beam if the above does not make any difference ? it may well be the switch assy hope this helps

Suzuki swift Headlight problem

Have you checked to see if this is a wiring problem or maybe a relay problem?

Recently my lights would work on side lights and not anything else and this was down to dodgy wiring and needed a new relay unit.
