My Most Recent Electrical Problem
Posted 20 May 2012 - 10:48 PM
My current problem is the rear lights, when they are lit up at night, are very nearly the same brightness as the brake lights I.e. the light does not brighten very much when under braking. The difference is so slight that you need to be really looking for change in brightness between the two to even see it...obviously this is dangorous to an extent, I don't want someone going into the back of me because they don't see my brake lights.
Any suggestions as to why this might be happening? I'm thinking either the rear lights are receiving too much power or the brake lights are getting too little...

or they are round the wrong way, they only go in one way properly and so take them out turn them 180 degrees and then try?

To check for an earth fault, apply brake lights only and observe the sidelights. Do they glow at least dimly? If so, the rear earth is defective. Apply indicators only, do any other lights glow?
If fixing the earths, it is good practice to take each light unit to its own local earth bolt, instead of the one common point.
