Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade
I am having an issue with the switch that turns my dash lights and gear shift light boards on. I have checked my fuses and they are all working. When I turn the switch that is located on the steering wheel they will come on once in awhile. I think that the problem is in the mechanism inside of the switch where it turns the head lights, dash lights and gear shifter lights on so that I can see what gear I am shifting into. The only thing is that my head lights are working although they seem to be very dim. Please help! Electrical problems can cost a forutne and I have very little money coming in. I own a 1992 Daihatsu Charade 4 door SE
These problems are always frustrating. Some of the charades swicth directly via the stalk on the column, while others have interposing relays. A common problem with dimmed headlights, indicators and dash lamps on the charade is caused by the fuse box retaining screws becoming loose .... these screws are also the -ve path back to the battery via the chassis.
If you have a meter, check voltages between the fuses and various metal parts to see if you can suss out a poor continuity path. Check your chassis strap between the battery -ve and the body is clean and tight.
