okay ladies and gentlemen...I have a good one for you.
problem - one out of every three times I switch from high beams to low beams, the low beams will come on for 1-2 seconds, then just shut off completely for 1-2 seconds and then come back on and work fine.
I have checked and cleaned the connectors on the lights - no help. I have wiggled every wire in the system that I can get my hands on, and played with the switch while the lights are on and it has no effect. I am getting good, steady current (~13 volts) to all three wires on both lights and it drops to ~0 when they (high/low beams) are switched on as it should. The tail lights stay on when the lights go out (????). According to the schematic, the problem is most likely in the red wire which goes from the "combination switch" to the "combination meter" and to each of the lights (if I am reading it right), or in the switch itself. I couldn't find the "combination meter" so I haven't ruled it out yet either.
ANY experience/advice/suggestions on this problem will be greatly appreciated.
