Hi-beam light flash on/off - why ?
I have done a full resto on my car so everything is new. The problem I am having is I can drive around all night on low beam no problems. Once on high beam it might only take a few minutes but then both lights just start flashing on & off, put it back on low beam & they work fine again.
Spoke to an auto electrician & he said maybe in the headlight switch there is some sort of ( cant remember what he called it ) where ifthe globes are too many watts it can overload the switch. Took the globes out & it had 60w lows & 110w highs. Fitted some new Tungsram superblue low beams which are 60/55w & Osram cool blue 55w high beams which are supposed to be a lot better globe. Thought maybe these would not draw as much power through the switch. The light is now much better but still does the same thing flashing on & off.
One thing I have not replaced is the dimmer switch on the floor so am not sure if that could have something to do with it.
Has anybody had these sort of issues before or know what it could be ?
