Headlight not working - 996 2003

Recommended Posts


I have one headlight where the main and dipped have stopped working. The bulbs are fine (although I have only checked one of them having said that) and the indicator and fog light work fine. I see that another thread suggested it may be the switch. Is it likely to be the switch and if so, can you test it with a continuity meter? Is there anything else that it could be?

Many thanks

Good thinking but just had a look and all the pins are fine, even just gave them a quick clean. I was wrong slightly in that its the dipped and side lights that do not work, the full beam, fog and indicator work ok. I have tried turning the switch on and off 20/30 times but I don't see even a flicker?

I was having a problem with my lights behaving weirdly and found the problem to be the body side connector wasnt fully connecting. Everything looked fine on both sides but the H/L wasnt fully seating because the clip that holds the body connector was cracked. Once that was solved everything went back to working again.
