MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Dim or what?
|Having burned out the dip switch as a result of the halogen headlight upgrade, I have now fitted a pair of relays (shutting the gate after the horse has bolted)|
All fitted and wired-up as close to the lights as possible on the n/s of the engine compartment (midget 1500)
The nearside headlight closest to the relays works brilliantly, but the o/s lamp very dim or not at all and the o/s indicator bulb also illuminates for some reason.
Any ideas as to what the problem is here?
|Sounds like a poor earth when another bulb lights up as well.|
|Yes - could be poor earth connection to wing; or even poor wing to body earth connection.|
'Twas a bad earth connection as you suggested.
Both halogens working brilliantly. The Lord said "Let there be light, and there was light" I can see for bloomin' miles.
|I passed a red Midget - BHM423H - on the M42 on Monday and the headlights looked very yellow.|
I will definitely be relaying my halogens.
