Solved - The high beam low beam indicator box needed attention. I stripped it and cleaned it and now it works. Not sure why no body knew about this. Makes sense now in hindsight.

Thanks mate
So had an auto sparky today and my electrician mate. Could not solve it.
Auto sparky told me it was relay, replaced and it didnt fix fuck all.
Took all relays out and guess what? lights still on except the one i need going...
So how that works i have no idea. There no point of the relays even being there. The switch turns lights on and off without the relays even in!
It must be a dodgy bypass some where from when it used to be auto?
Am i even on the right page here?

The plug has 12v until bulb is put in and draws the current. Then it reads 0v.
Multi meter is great but doesn't help me solve this mystery
May have to run a jumper wire but not really keen...

Goes back in to loom and high beam light. I just took the plug off and put it on other side and it goes no worries so its not the plug. Very confused as both sides show same voltage on multi meter but only one side goes....

12.3 with the probes in the lightbulb plug socket thing. Dunno what grounds you are talking about?

Just checked at the bulb plug with a multi meter and there is power there. And i know the bulb works fine (put it in other side just now) but when i put it in plug it doesnt go. So strange. it clicks in and all. how can it not be making a connection. will have to disassemble the plug terminals and clean. Never thought that would be the issue but multi meters dont lie.

Thank you for your reply. Hopefully another switch will solve this. I used sand paper between the terminals and thought that would suffice for a good connection but maybe they are just that worn.
Will update when i find another switch

Head light wasnt going on one side but bulb was fine.
Traced back to switch.
With a wiggle could get both going.
So figured id take it to bits and clean it. Put it back in and it melted one of the plastic pins that push the metal pins.
Why would this happen?
Will have to find another one now but im not sure if it will fix the issue, i mean theres not too much to them.


First clutch disk had come off center puck thing on install.

Audio, Security and Electrical / r32 headlight not working
« on: March 10, 2018, 04:32:50 PM »
Hey guys.
Got an issue with left headlamp not going.
Has been coming on and off when driving and both lights cutting out completely at some times.
Think its the switch playing up.
I took it out today and gave it a good clean up on the 3 pins inside. Put it back together but still only had one light going.
Noticed soon after the switch was real hot so i took it apart again and one of the little plastic nubs that push the pins down was melted as so now i cant even put the switch back in. Any ideas why this is happening?

Looks like everything is doing what it should be except no disengage. Looks like will have to pull apart again fml

Just pulled off rubber to see whats going on in there and it all looks the way it should be. Cant push the fork by hand as its very hard. Might leave rubbe roff and put slave back on and get a mate to pump the pedal while im under there looking at the thrust bearing.

used the one that came in not. looks like it's where it should be. I can feel slight free play if i pull fork back and can feel it hit the clutch teeth just after. it should work. but doesn't

General Skyline Discussion / New twin plate clutch install - wont disengage
« on: February 13, 2018, 05:02:50 PM »
Replaced worn out clutch in weekend with a very expensive nismo copper mix twin plate and flywheel.
Thought all had gone well untill tried to drive away and can not engage any gears with foot fully down on clutch pedal.
Thought slave was bad so have replaced and bled and still problem remains. Has anyone else experienced this with twin plate clutches before?
Me and mate installed and went by instructions it was pretty straight foward. We are pretty good with that stuff we thought.
Do they need a longer rod or something on slave to push further or s there something wrong with the imstall?
Many thanks
