Headlights

#1 Post by steven wood » Fri Mar 13, 2015 6:42 pm

Can anybody tell me why I have headlights but no side lights or rear lights.
I have checked bulbs and fuses.
I changed the indicator stalk recently, then changed it back to
the original one as they were working.
But I still have no side lights or rear lights.

You don't say if its a mk1 or mk2. The rocker switches in mk1's are notorious for failing. Sometimes squirting a switch contact cleaner aerosol around the edges of each switch whilst switching them vigorously on and off may revive them.
