Re: Headlight problems continue...electrical gurus?
Ok, Phazer, let me see if I have this straight...
I concur it could be the dimmer switch (I am assuming you mean the signal/wiper arm on the steering column), particularily because I twice saw it "puff electrical smoke", although some time before this incident.
So what you are saying is that I have to change out the signal/wiper arm? Is that the dimmer switch? If not, I am not exactly clear on where to find it, although I think you are probably right.
I did try to get at the wires that hook up to the signal/wiper thing on the steering column, but what I ended up doing was making a mess of the black cover in front of it (which I now suspect is only removed/installed with the steering wheel OFF). As a result, my signal arm is no longer hooked up to the metal rod that switches from high to low, although I can push the rod with my fingers, and switch from high to low manually. Of course the low still does not work.
Is the dimmer switch you are referring to at the end of that rod? If so how in the heck do I get to it? I am now pretty convinced that it has nothing to do with the signal/wiper arm itself, after breaking that cover, I now see that it's only connection to all of this is to move that metal rod back and forth to switch from hi to low beam, and vice verca.
So inshort, I think you might have me on the right track, but I am at the point where I am still quite unclear what the dimmer switch is, and how to get to it. If you can elaborate once again for me it would be greatly appreciated.
