Can someone help me on this one:

My offside head lamp lens on my c max 2005 failed the mot as it was oxidised. I got a replacement head lamp which I fixed myself. Reasonably straight forward or so I thought.

Now installed I don't have full beam and dipped head lights. They do come on slightly on side light setting only. The indicator works. I have a short circuit somewhere, I imagine.

I would really appreciate some help on this one.


Have something to contribute?

did you plug the wires onto bulbs or check them, you have three bulbs, if yes take light back out and check bulbs also recheck main plug for wires are together properly.

agree'd and also ensure that you have put the correct wires onto the correct bulbs (sounds silly but got to check these things)
