New problem to add to the list, both dipped beam headlights stopped working tonight, meaning I had to use sidelights and front fogs to see my way home
Opened the fuse box cover and there is two lots of fuses a lower box with 19 fuses installed horizontally and above that what looks like three rows of six fuses all vertically installed in what looks like a small cage, see pics
I've pulled every 20A fuse out the lower set of fuses and couldn't see any with a problem. Secondly when I rotate the stalk beyond the side lights to dipped beam, I can hear the relay click closed but the lights aren't coming on. My thoughts are
1. Relay is gone (why?)
2. Stalk may be finally broken, I have had intermittent issues the last two winters when the temperature really drops i.e. -2 and below. But I don't think it's this as I can hear the relay click, which would indicate a feed coming from the stalk.
3. Battery related? The car is on the original AR battery, now 7 yrs old. Could this be causing gremlins. I wouldn't have expected so when the engine is running but can't be sure.
Any help/advice appreciated. It's going in on Wednesday to have the driveshafts checked as I'm getting a clicking noise (again) but I'd prefer to sort this myself if possible.
