2016 2008 Active, 1200 non turbo petrol.

Trying to fid out if the dip headlights have fuses allocated to them. Nothing mentioned in the handbook, only main beam fuses.

This follows on from the discovery that the voltage is low at the dip bulbs, so trying to trace possible check points.
The main beam fuses are in the engine compartment fuse box, so if there are some for the dip bulbs I would assume they are there too.

Thanks, but that is essentially a copy of what is in the handbook. No mention of the dip beam fuses.

Thanks, but at 5A I doubt it's for the dip beam. Both main beam fuses are 10A, so 5A supplying both dips would not last. It might be for the level adjustment.

According to my handbook, F18 & 19 are for the main beam bulbs. Maybe I should remove one and see if it also cuts the dip. Though I doubt it as when on main beam the dip is also on, and two bulbs would be very close to the 10A for the fuse.
But I see there is a relay supplying those fuses. There should be another for the other bulb, dip or main.

Thanks for going to the trouble, every little helps as they say.
Next is to see if I can read the number on the wire on the headlamp connector.

Hi looking at the diagram again. It looks like to me that you have 1 live feed to each head lamp fused at F18 & F19 in engine bay then two earths coming out of headlamp and two wires from the BSI which I’m guessing are switch.

Can’t see a fuse for dipped beam on there at all. I presume it’s controlled by the Ecu. Maybe you could send windy a message he is spot on.

Ah, thanks for doing all that.
As there are only two wires to the BSI, I would assume they are for the daytime running light/sidelight and the indicator.

Now downloading in the hope I can install my own copy, thanks Windy.

I think I'm using the same one. But currently running at 3.5mb/sec, it may take some time.

But I now suspect the dreaded CANbus is involved in my problem on the lights, so maybe there is nothing which can be done.
