2006 mk2 headlights not working , no relay click


Recommended Posts

Hi 

I've tried reading through but can't find the answer , my headlights low beam are not working , side lights , main beam working .

When i use stork for main beam I can hear relay click in foot Well,  when I use headlights no relay click , ( tried friends same model and can hear it ) I checked the connection at headlight with multimeter with no readings ( confirmed side lights with a reading back ) I've looked and looked for Headlight relay but can not find it anywhere , are there any relays in actual fuse panel ? 

All fuses are ok too and bulbs replaced

Most relays of the GEM module/fusebox are SMD relays that are soldered directly onto the circuit board. Officially these relays are not considered to be a serviceable part. In case of a defect Ford prescribes to replace the complete GEM module/fuse box.

The GEM module/fuse box however can easily be disassembled. Once disassembled the particular relay can be desoldered from the circuit board and a new relay can be soldered in place. If you do not have the skills/equipment to do this yourself I suggest to find yourself a local radio/TV repair shop that can do the repair for you.

Hi 

Just incase reads this with the same problem in the future , it was the Relay , I stripped the fuse panel apart , but was a bit to difficult for my skills , so I found a replacement fuse panel on EBay for £28 and this did the trick , replacementwas very straight forward , unplug cables pull out and new one in

Glad you sorted this out, can't be easy having issues that are not readily repairable by yourself. Ebay is great for neat little, cheap buys like this.
