    Got one issue that I'm trying to resolve with my 98 Cabrio

    The light warning sign is on the car and Full beams / flasher both do not work. I ordered a new stalk but ended up being sent the wrong one and cannot find the flasher that fits my car at the moment (still searching).

    I've checked the fuses - they're all fine. However, when I put the full beam switch on - the full beam fuses are only getting 0.26v (dipped beams reading over 13v). Without the full beam switch I'm getting 0v.

    Does anyone know if the low voltage is because of a busted switch or incorrect bulbs? I don't know why the car would say bulb fault at startup if the switch was busted so I'm thinking maybe incorrect bulbs or a wiring fault somewhere?

    I've checked MOT history and the flasher hasn't been working previous 2 MOTs... don't think my MOT tester will be so lenient!

    Without a wiring diagram I am going to struggle to help, there isn't one for an 8G or even the very similar 8A salon on Elsa or erWin, the only easy way to get one is this DVD manual
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
