Hi people I have had a quick look but cant find the problem on here, got a 1998 Renault grand Espace. The dipped main beam lights don't work, at first we couldn't turn them off unless we disconnected the battery, now they don't work at all. The side lights, main beam, front and back fog lights all work fine. I have checked the fuses cant see any problems so replace the bulbs but still nothing. Any ideas please thanks.

Hi , im not sure abuot your problem but it does sound as though it could be the relay tbh but some one in the electrics side of the forum must know , other than that it would probably be down to bad wires and you would need a multimetre to check it , good luck Ian

Sorry but it doesn't seem to show a relay for the dipped headlights in my Haynes manual just fuses 25 & 26 , so it sounds like it might be a bad earth :confused:

Hi again Crasher, Checking them one by one is the best way to keep track and of course a multimetre but if you don't have one you could swap them around but if swap them around , dont for get to number them and the positions first so you can keep track of the original positions , i hope that helps Ian :think:
