i had the exact same prob 2 weeks ago ,replace the relay next to battery and then there's a little metal relay resister thing on the side of the set of relays pull that out and clean it ,file the ends so there shinny again or replace it and it should work ,you will find that circut is getting really hot and shorting the lights out ,so try that i and i reckon it will fix it

ok going by what yous are saying i agree to 1 st switch being parkers and the second switch being low beam the ones you use to drive around at night with and high beam being the blinker stick, ok so i dont have the low beams the night lights you need to drive around at night! ok i have checked the small fuses and the relays in the fuse box in the car but not the ones under the bonnet near the coolant surge tank, ok. when i go to use my low beams the nights lights i turn the switch right and then i have my parkers then i switch it to the second switch to get my low beams my night lights but the parkers are the only ones that are on instead of being my night lights, is this right i thought that when you turn your low beams on you know night lights that the parkers turn off and the night lights come on? i have my rear lights at night both on the parker and low beam switch. and with it being the light bulbs the high beam runs through the low beam lights and if my high beams are working it shouldnt be the light bulbs right? hope i made sense?

arh kind of :?
there is a seperate bulb for each light setting.
have you checked the connections to the bulbs?
try and get one of those current measuring device thingys and try and trace the wire from the switch to the globe to see where the current stops.

no, u can blow ur low beam and high beam still work, there are 2 different filaments for both


just replace the globes, or better still get someone who knows somethin about cars to do it, then everything will be fine

just make sure u buy 55w/60w globes as anythin else is illegal, not that likely to get done for it but if the cop is an a*** they will

....and yes parkers do stay on the whole time you use your lights.

Definately get those new globes, slap em in and see if they work cause you can have you high beams working but low beams blow.
