Dipped headlight issue

Postby Fleeto » Mon Jan 02, 2017 3:01 pm

Hey everyone.

I've got a 61 plate qashqai and the dipped headlights stopped working.

I've changed the bulbs (twice) and changed the 15amp fuses in the big black box in engine but still no dipped lights.

All lights work including full beam.

Any ideas?

Struggling to find answer online. Some mention the actual stick being faulty but true it on auto with no joy, only side lights come on.

Other sites mention relay? Is the relay something that is easily replaced or welded in place?

Any help. Would be appreciated as it's driving me nuts

Cheers

Dip and high beam relays are in the IDPM unit but unfortunately they're soldered to the board.

A poor ground somewhere seems a more likely culprit to me.

Hello

Thanks for the reply.

So maybe replacing that lid with one off another vehicle may well sort the issue?

Possibly, but I'd still check that there's no ground issue with the dipped beam lights first...
