  1. Adding a bit to an older thread. The headlights (low and high) completely stopped coming on recently (2002 Carrera Cabrio), but I could toggle the high beams with the stalk. Also, the fog lights and parking lights all worked, just no headlights. Was trying to determine if the switch was actually bad before buying a new one, but with about a dozen connections to the harness, I gave up on figuring out what each did. On a 986 forum, I found a thread that talked about removing the switch, blasting CRC contact cleaner or similar into it. I shot cleaner down the stem and into the 8 or so crimped lugs that hold it together, blew it dry and tested. And, it fixed my headlights 100%. Anyway, if you have a similar fault in turning on your headlights, give this a try. Also, Pelican has a good DIY writeup with photos on R&R the headlamp switch.
