Hi guys
I have a j10 facelift 1.5 diesel, my main beam has stopped working, but flashing the lights still work, fuses have been checked and are ok, relays are ok, and I have changed the light stalk, but still no main beam. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

The headlights are actually microprocessor controlled from the headlamp switching (stalk) and via power control (IPDM unit) to each bulb. The Body Control Module (BCM) is also included. So its not just a simple relay and fuse system.

It needs the Nissan CONSULT tool to test the processor within IPDM where fuses/relays tested ok. Flashing the headlamps ok indicate they are so the problem is related to the "computer" side of this system. Or the switching wiring is faulty? Perhaps bad plug/socket pin connections related to IPDM and/or BCM modules?
