Question about 1972 Porsche 911
I have a 1972 911E (mostly stock), the headlights do not work but high beams work fine, the turn signals(left and right) do not flash but the relay ticks as if the lights should be flashing. I have cleaned the fuse block and replaced all of the fuses at the left front of the luggage compartment near the battery. There does not seem to be any other electrical probelms with the car. Any ideas as to what may be causing these problems? Are they both related? Thanks in advance for any help you may give me.
Odd. In 1772 models, the flasher unit was electromechanical and required a load of 42 watts to flash at the correct speed. Probably poor earth or broken wire.

SOURCE: Luggage compartment lights
Should be in the trunk fuse box, more more likely its the harness that feeds the lights, when the trunk is open you need to check and make sure there is power to the lights.

Have you checked for good grounds? Sometimes water or wetness will help with conductivity. Grounds are all over the place and are usually corroded, braking the bond. Make sure that all grounds are clean and secure.

remove the two plastic bungs in the side of the cover panel down side of seat, then inside are two 6mm allen screws, these need to be loosened, not removed to allow the trim to be lifted up to access switches. refitting is reversed

The best way to do this is to put battery voltage back into the system through the cigarette lighter. You can buy a battery charger at an auto parts store or walmart that is designed to charge the battery through the cigarette lighter. It will have a plug on it that insert right into the cigarette lighter. Let it charge a little, and try the button again. It will pop right open.
