Light Problems

Recommended Posts

Hi hope someone can help with this one.

We have a 1985 Defender 90 and have a problem with the lights. We have side lights, and full beam but no dipped beam on either side.

Have checked the fuses and all seem OK. Can anyone suggest where I go from here?

1985 will have sealed beam units originally, have you checked the bulbs?

Could also be the switch as for that year they didn't use relays on the light circuit. Do you know if you have a Dim/dip function. i.e where the headlights on very low (like the side lights) when the side lights where on?

It was a specific function that some vehicles had for a few years, but the legislation changed and that function was removed.
