Problem with headlight'dipswitch

Post  JohnW on Wed 16 Aug - 20:00

I had a problem recently with the headlight on my T80, the dip switch did not appear to work & high beam warning light was on in dip position. It turned out to be a faulty headlight bulb, looked as though the high & low beam filaments had touched. Put in a new bulb & all was fine.

Not long, went straight to bulb as it seemed a bit odd that it was working OK previous & it was not changing from high to low beam. I think both filaments were lighting up as the light was a bit dim.

Always pays to buy a good quality bulb. There are a lot of crap ones about on eBay
