Two lighting questions

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 996 C2 cabriolet.

1. I'm confused about xenon bulb replacement. Based on a fit guide, I ordered D1S bulbs. However, when I removed the left headlight assembly, there was a label on the back of the control unit that says D2S. The right headlight assembly has no such indication. I've not opened them up to see what is actually in there but thought I'd ask whether the use of D1S or D2S varies depending on what was "in the parts bin" at the time?

2. I hamfistedly broke my hazard light switch (by pulling on the white assembly rather than on the tabs.) I have ordered a new one but in the meantime discovered that without the switch, my turn signals are inoperative. I tried to reassemble the broken switch and put it back in only to find that the hazard lights came on, the left turn signal came on (with the stalk in the off position) and after a few seconds the airbag and rollover bar warnings appeared on the computer. I have since removed the switch and those warnings have disappeared. Any idea if have done irreparable damage to something electronic and expensive...?

Thanks Loren.

Upon closer inspection of the switch, it seems that the contacts on the white part have bent over. It looks like the contact in the black receptacle that wire A9 goes into is deformed and is inaccessible. I bent the contacts that I could get to and reinstalled it and while not 100% functional, at least the turn signals work!

I'll put in the replacement part when I receive it.
