Hi all

Im having a bit of electrical trouble with my headlights and hopefully someone here can help me out

If i turn the headlight switch to parkers - my parkers come on
If i turn the headlight switch to normal (headlights on) - only my parkers come on
If i turn on high beams - my headlights and high beams come on!

What could the problem be? I've checked all fuses and also checked the headlight relay with a multimeter and seems fine. I dont know what else it could be.

Anyone have any ideas??

Forgot to say, it's a 1995 EF Fairmont

The globes have 2 parts. Parkers are separate globes, hence why they come on. The headlight and highbeams are in the one globe, so it'll be the headlight part of the globe thats gone. This is a pretty confusing type globe to most people as i've seen a few people nearly fall over backwards trying to think of what it would be - so my guess is is that it is the headlight part of the globe thats gone - just grab two newies and throw them in and they should be right.

Only thing that seems strange to me is why they have both gone at the same time!!!

Shouldn't be anymore than about $3 -$4 each from the servo

$15 - was a bt off the mark there. Globes can be expensive, especially the top quality white lights ones for the $140 mark.

Good to hear she's all looking good now
