Mk3 Titanium X Owners - Potential Xenon Headlight Issue

34 posts in this topic

I'm not too bothered either but just noticed it when car was defrosting the other day. Thought it might have been after work by Ford dealer.

Was sat in the petrol station today and while waiting behind a black car I noticed the drl slight flicker on left side, so began to play a bit as the heaters and dips were on. Turned heaters off to start with and they stopped, heaters on they start, dips off heaters on they stop, dips on heaters off still ok so started the heated seats seams ok, flicked on front window heater the drl dims switch back off the brighten up again. Must be a power drain thing so until they actually fail or flicker constantly I doubt ford will do anything. On the plus side if do go into dealer about it I can hopefully make them flicker on que.

The item was posted more as a matter of interest rather than as specific help Tomo 2001 and might be relevant for readers who are keen to upgrade their cars in this way. It illustrated to me, at least, the interaction of various components in modern cars - doctors would I suppose call it the 'holistic' approach!

Apologies if I posted in the incorrect area but I thought it would link in with topic under discussion.

Firstly, please don't write in all caps and italics!

All Xenon lights have got to automatically level because the law says so. This is to prevent blinding people, however, the lights that this guy are on about have gone into a fail safe state at their lowest position.
