Hi Guys,

I was told my drivers low beam was not working so I thought time to change the bulbs to something allot better s I got a full set of NARVA Platinum Plus 130's and after all that **** f@rt around the drives low beam is still not working all lights work it's clearly not the bulb as when high beam comes on all lights come on including the drivers low beam.

All fuses checked none are blown.

Swapped Low & High beam relays no affect.

So what can it be I find this weird???

Ok got a multimeter but instruction are not clear on how to use it as in what each symble means how to check voltage etc.

So no idea were to plug the leads into then what I should put the dial onto just to check voltage.

Have a look at mine. Set yours up similar. Then try test it on a 9v battery and see how it reads first.

Thanks mate :wink:

Ok after some testing I have ruled out the low beam relays both are showing 12v.

Fuses also show 12v.

Now when testing the plugs on both side at the light's passenger side shows 12v from the pink/black wire and when checked on the drives side 0v.

Correction.. ok if 0v are on drivers side then you need to trace the wire back to the fuse box to find a break.

Rare to have issues like this on an FG.
