At the moment I am working through testing electrics. Got it down to 4 areas: Light switch - causing short. Dim/ Dip relay or wiring prob. Fog relay prob or worst an alarm ecu problem. Alarm ECU works, I am told, on volt drop activation, but cant see how ECU causes lghts not to go on. So hopefully it is one of the others. At least I will know my electrics inside out after this.

Head lights on td5 defender not working.Alarm sounds when light stalk is turned on,any help would be appreciated.Thanks in advance


First check the fuse, must be battery voltage both sides, if ok check voltage both sides of stalk switch, if ok check voltage at head light relay, ( some relays may have a fuse ) if ok check voltage at head light bulb terminal. It is possible both bulbs are burnt out but not likely .

How do I open the bonnet of my 2009 bow 740? Tried banning on it with someone pulling lever as advised by RAC but no joy


Provided there is still resistance felt in the lever indicating that the cable is still intact have someone put one hand on the bonnet between the grill and the left head light and the other hand in the same place next to the right headlight and while pushing down on the bonnet in these two locations then have someone pull on and hold the lever up then release your weight from the bonnet and try pulling up whilst the person is holding open the lever, if it opens the two bonnet latches need lubricating.

First of all are your headlights a double filament type headlight? If yes then I would suspect that a power wire to the high beams is broken or shorted. If your high beams are a separate set of lights from your regulars running lights then either the high beams headlights are missing. or has a broken power wire or shorted or...You could check the fuse box under your dash and under the hood of the car to see if you have a fuse for the high beam lights.

Audible warning when outside lights left on not working on TD5


Not sure what year this is but it may be the audio box that make the noise or the switch in the cylinder lock itself,
When the key is removed it release a lever that makes a connection and if lights are on it sounds the box but if this lever is worn then no noise, try to wiggle key and see is it works,

Headlights don't work why?


Test the headlight switch as follows.
  • Move your car to a dark area, such as waiting until night or moving to a dark garage, to test your headlight switch.
  • 2Turn on your car, so you can see your dashboard lights. Note whether some of your dashboard lights fail to illuminate.


    • 3
  • Turn on your car's headlights. Note whether your car's headlights illuminate.
  • 4Press the high beam lever to activate your high beams. Note whether your high beams activate.
  • 5Put your car in "Park." Move to the back of the car. Note whether your parking lights are illuminated.
  • 6View any remaining driving lights, such as lights above the license plate. Note whether these lights come on.
    If more than one set of lights does not activate when you turn on the lights, you may need to replace your headlight switch. If only one set of lights does not turn on, try replacing the lightbulbs in that set and then retesting your car. If the lights still do not illuminate, you may need to replace your headlight switch.

    Toyota corolla 1985 headlights go off when indicating left


    This sounds like the cluster switch that is mounted against the steering collumn that has the stalks for the Wiper, indicator and headlights on is faulty. They sometimes are a pair meaning that the headlights and Indicators are matched together and is a combined unit, you have to replace the unit.
