Re: High beam indicator snafu ??
I have a similar issue going on with my Zuk and have been unable to find time to trace it. Some of the content of this thread gives me some great time-saving suggestions, though. This board is such a fantastic source of info.
Everything worked normally in my Zuk (88.5 hdtp) until I did a slew of things in a couple weekends, so it is hard to trace when it went wrong. Looking at a schematic, I can see the affected areas all seem to be on the same circuit, but where the problem is, I don't know.
My hi-beam indicator comes on when I open my drivers side door. It doesn't come on when I put on the hi-beams, thogh I know it did at one point.
My interior light does not come on at all, though it did at one point. The bulb is OK.
The horn makes a sad, bleating noise now, inaudible from outside the truck. This used to work, too.
All these things seemed to happen around the time I blew a headlight, around when I also did this stuff:
put in a stereo, including new speakers in the stock front kick panel locations (yanking on wires under dash and in kick panel)
put in a tachometer, also yanking wires under dash.
I guess I have to check the fuses first. I know the hi beam indicator does NOT go on when the door is open if I push the door open switch out of its hole (the body of the switch grounds on the hole opening). However the horn does not begin to work with the switch out of place. I think this is a bad ground someplace in that circuit that deals with the door switch, hi beam indicator and horn. My electrical knowledge is too old and fuzzy to puzzle it out with the schematic, but maybe I can find it now with some of this extra info. Anyone happen to have working knowledge of the electrical system enough to pin it for me?
