DRL/sidelight issue
« on: June 30, 2020, 08:25:29 pm »


So this is my issue has anyone had similar?

I have replaced the housing and the bulbs
Swapped bulbs over with drivers side so I know the bulbs connect and work properly
Checked the fuses and earths
Visually checked wiring.

    We had the same issue but was tracked down to a poor earth which fixed it. Time to get the multimeter out ;D

    Agree check all running lights and bulbs including rear lights, in the old days before ECU’S stop/tail faults used to throw  up all sorts of anomalies, usually bulb or earth fault.

    that seems like the plan this weekend, and wire in an extra earth to see if it fixes it
