Lights failure
« on: May 12, 2022, 21:16:24 »
I have an Aceca Bristol and just went to go out and neither the headlights, rear lights or spotlights will work. Indicators do and if I use the flasher for the spotlights, that works. Looked at the fuses and they all look OK. Any idea?

What happens if you swap the fuses?

Assuming all fuses are ok. Then using a 12v test light check for input feed to the light switch, operate switch and check to see if you have feeds out from the switch, you may find a wire detached at the back of the switch or that the switch is faulty or corroded/ dirty contacts.
Hope this is of help.
Kind regards Nick

I couldn't resist having a quick look at the wiring diag.

Power goes as follows;

1) Battery
2) Ammeter
3) Regulator
4) Lighting switch

A very quick sketch which I ran out of time to make look neater!
