Lintronics high beam, maybe?

Recommended Posts

Just a quick one. When the high bean is activated does the lens tilt up? Seems I remember it use to. Been to long. Durametric activation function. 

Thanks

Yes, the HID beam tilts to fill in the high beam.

JFP is this true for after delivery installs of Litronics as well as factory optioned ones?

 

Hi Mike.  Yes, it applies to both factory and aftermarket installations, providing there is a functioning control unit installed.  If the control unit is dead, or if the aftermarket install did not include the controller, the lights won't move.

Interesting. Well I guess since it did what the durametric told it to do i  need to change out the controls module. The halogens do come on just no level change.  It is under the dash correct? No programming require?

Not sure you understand how this works:  The halogens do not move, the HID low beam does when the module is active.  The module is usually in the front trunk area:

There have been a couple of variations on this unit, but all are pretty much the same.  Before replacing this unit, I would suggest "borrowing" a working unit and testing that; you may have a fault in your wiring preventing it from getting the signal from the lights, but getting it from the Durametric.

If someone put Litronics in the car without wiring up a control module for each then I think that is what you get.

A "real" Litronics upgrade includes control modules and headlights.

Makes sense. Guess I was not clear on the problem. OK I will pull the unit and check for all wiring connections. I have a used unit, but sense I have no date for pin location /output I will start there.

I am safe there. I have had this since new. ? Maybe the body shop may have messed with something.  Like i said the halogen come on when high beam activated just no raising of the reflector.  But yep that would do it right.

So before I start pulling things and looking for a broken  or loose connector. My durametric said the calibration needed to be done.  Is that a bogus bit of info? Also I looked in the front trunk inside behind the covers and did not see a control module.

Can not get a confirmation on the programing, but for now is there someone who knows where the control module is hidden. Can not find it.

Don't drive much at night but it bugs me.

The Headlight Beam Alignment module is located in the right hand side of the dashboard, under the passenger airbag.  (LHD car).

I don't know if it would cause your problem, but a common failing on Litronics is the plastic level sensor arms on the suspension.  They break, or become detached.

Thanks. I checked those for attachment. Would be nice if there was something like in the old manuals that gave you data on how to test one. But I guess if the program says its good it has to be right.  

With a smile on my face could you please find an easier place for an old guy to find the control module? ?
