Spotlight short

Postby thefridge » Fri Jul 29, 2011 5:30 pm

Ok lads my spots have stopped working and are blowing fuses when i turn them on. Had an electrician look at them and there is a short somewhere. Anyone good with this sort of stuff willing to have a look for payment ?Or can anyone recommend a person to take it to. I am short on money so cant really afford to spend a lot on it.

Thanks

Are they the standard fog lights or HID's?, and did anything happen to the car, like driving thru water, hitting anything etc?

I think the mud flap under the wheel arch was not sitting properly so it let some water on to it. Other than that nothing else could have happened.

Does the fuse still blow when you remove the fog light bulbs?

If yes the it's in the plug or wiring back.

If no, replace the stuffed bulb.

also, try a fuse with 1 light connected at a time, will narrow it down to either left or right side. I had a similar problem with mine a while back and turned out that the actual bulb connector was hitting the metal of the lamp and shorting it. Bit of tape later an not a problem since
