hi just wondering if anyone could help me with a dilemma I am having with my ef falcon 1995 model.
when travelling on the hi-way my high beam will just cut out sometimes, iv had the column switch changed out, relays changed and even got an auto lecky to check the harness for shorts, I have no idea what else could be causing it! any suggestions guys?

You're overloading the circuit and self resetting circuit breaker is cutting the supply... Once the breaker cools down again it closes and you get your lights back...

Are only std wattage fitted? If bigger wattage globes have been put in you get this issue occurring...

Or, is it only high beam that are cutting out and not high and low?

Cheers,
Tim

Does it only happen while you drive... If you leave it idling in your garage with high beam on, does it cut out?

Cheers, Tim
