My problem is [ excuse the terminology] when the headlights are hooked up to the vaccum source in the engine compartment, the lights stay down, but when i unhook them at the little silver colored disk that has one in and two out, the come up. I figure that this means that the switch thats connected to the headlight switch is bad, but im not for sure. I would have emailed ya, but figured that wouldnt help the next guy that used the search engine.
Thanks in advance.
They dont come up unless i unhook it from it from the disk. I figure that its the headlight switch causing this, from the auto cad drawing if im correct, once you pull the switch it cuts the vaccum just like disconnecting the hose from the disk. Thoughts or corrections?
Toobroke is right, if you eliminate vacuum to one side of the spool ,the other activates .. these things really aren t that complex, if you understand that vacuum is used to both,pull them open and pull them closed
lets not forget the Override switch under the steering column ..it activates headlight open/close without turning on lights at all
The purpose for the headlight/wiper door override is for people that live where it snows in the winter to keep them from freezing in the closed position, when its below freezing you keep them open..The purpose of that override valve is to open your headlights to clean them without having to deal with the heat. As the headlights of these C3's remain closed most of the time they get real dirty without your knowing about it and then they don't shine nearly as bright as they should when you really need them.
It's always best to wash your car with them open so they don't have the chance to get dirty without your knowing about them being dirty.
