Ray you're saying Gli, Futura and XR all run H1 lows? Or all run both low and high beam relay when on high beam?

I don't have a genuine manual for the EL sorry Andrew... I have ED, AU and BF... None of them will help if Ray believes there is a difference between ED and EL XR wiring... On ED, that middle pin wire on the low beam runs through a diode link and back into the high beam wire... This way when high is on it back flows to low... But as far as EL goes maybe Ray has a diagram?

Cheers,
Tim



Tim, the supplied pics are from the factory EF/EL manual and only shows the Falcon/Fairlane/LTD wiring looms. check pic of headlight relays as it shows a link in falcon low beam and says its not there in the fairlane/ltd

all right guys, I checked all violet and violet/white wires in both low n high beam relays, I had power to 3 but not the fourth and that was in the low beam relay, so I started to follow the wire and got about 6in from the bottom of the relay and found this. this is the violet/white wire for low beam and shows it had worn through and I didn't notice it as the plastic was holding it in place, so just joined in a new wire n feed it back into the relay and now have head lights working. all this s**t for what turns out a very simple problem. thanks everyone for all your help and suggestion. I also have the schematics drawing for the ef xr n el xr head lights if any one wants me to post them up let me know. cheers again guys

hey mad 2, yep hate it, spent money on stuff that in the end I didn't need, but still happy its fixed.
the schematic's I have are a little different and if you hadn't posted that colour code chart id be stuck. so you have to use that colour chart with my schematic's and a big thanks to smokin em up that info about the relays was very helpful in fact everybody was helpful so thanks again guys.
