Question about 1988 Land Rover Range Rover

1 Answer

1988 range rover - The brake light switch operates the brake lights but also: operating the brake light switch makes the fog lamp switch illumination bulb come on - if the fog light switch is already on then the brake light switch makes the dip beams come on (the car has no fog lamps, there is no under bonnet wiring for them from what I can see ) - I guess this may be an earthing fault but I have no wiring diagram and any help would be appreciated

Look for cutts in the wiring, tape up. Check all plugs and relays, you can find.
As for diagrammes, either a Haynes of down load a manual, if you have no joy on Google or Alltheweb try http://www.landroverweb.com/Land-Rover-Range-Rover-manual-pdf.htm
There are no front fogs fitted, only the driving lights in the air dam, the switch with the 2 on it lower front dash cluster with rear fog light switch etc.

Yea, take it to a qualified repair shop ! Could be anything , and with out doing some test couldn't make a suggestions .
Headlights/Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Circuit Description
The instrument cluster controls the headlamp systems that include daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity when all of the following conditions apply:
• The engine is running.
• The transaxle is not in the PARK position.
• The normal headlamps are not on.
The instrument cluster turns the DRL system on by grounding CKT 592, thereby energizing the DRL relay. This action allows a reduced voltage of 6 volts to flow across the headlamps. If the vehicle has the optional fog lamps, the fog lamp relay will also be energized. The park lamps will turn on and the fog lamps will operate normally. When the headlamp switch is turned to the ON position, the instrument cluster allows normal headlamp operation.
The instrument cluster also has an input from the park brake. If the park brake is in the ON position, the DRL will remain disabled until the park brake is placed in the OFF position. On vehicles with an automatic transaxle, the instrument cluster will disable the DRL until the transaxle has been taken out of the PARK position.

Brake light? Some bad connections to light sockets if bulbs not burned out. Of course you will need help to see brake light when brake is pushed.

Can't get power to foglights on my 2003 Explorer


Power is applied to the fog lamp switch which is a separately controlled part of the main light switch. When the fog lamp switch is turned on, power is applied to the fog lamp relay in the battery junction box which closes to turn on the fog lamps IF 20A FUSE 19 and 15A FUSE 44 in the BJB are OK. Setting the multifunction switch to HI closes the high beam relay in the BJB, removing power from the fog lamps and directing it through 20A FUSE 46 in the BJB to the high beam lamps. In other words, you can have fog lamps or high beam lamps but not both at the same time

the multifunction switch is set to HI, the high beam relay in the battery junction box closes

Fog Lights won't come on?


Check fuses,
Note you probably must have parklights 'on' before foglights will operate (Check user manual for fog lamp operation (interlock) requirements),
Check operation of fog light relay (if fitted),
Check fog lamps and bulbs are ok.

1987 Range Rover Vogue.Auxillary/ Driving lights


Hi

No, you can't not for on road use any how. Driving around with those on especially in the wet and you could get your self a pull from the law, you could blind on coming drivers.

You could mess about with the wiring however I would advise this. The simplest way around this is to fit fogs on the air dam using seperate wiring. The switch can go on the dash or you could get a proper switch relay and link it into the rear for line.

The driving light harness could be removed from the old air dam driving lights, add about a foot of wiring and you could fit some bumper lights for off road use.

Remember any mods you make, let your insurance company know.

Both brake lights don't work on Rover 25, even changed bulbs and they still don't work


Have you checked the fuse for the brake lights to make sure it is not blown? If bulbs and fuses are good, I would look at a defective brake light switch. These switches are typically located somewhere under the brake pedal, close to the firewall. When the brake pedal is depressed it trips the switch. Find the switch and you can easily test it with an ohm meter or multimeter. Sure hope this helped you and good luck.

Fog lights


hi from uk the fog lghts? i assume front fog lamps ? the head lights have to be on dipped beam then the fogs will also work but in uk this is so as to prevent fogs only being used (blinding oncoming traffic ) if weather conditions req fogs to be used for poor visibility ? then the side/tail and h/lights must also be on like wise the rear fog light/s operate the same way hope this helps and makes perfect sense ?? all above is assuming bulbs have been checked and fuse/relay and power to each lamp ?
