99 GL 1500 low beam lights

Post by gford »



My Low bean lights stopped working and it was the low bean relay, I swapped the relay with the compressor relay and it worked again. I ordered two relays from this site and when they arrived I replaced the compressor and low beam relays with the new ones, chucked the bad one and keep the other as a spare. Today my low beams worked sometimes and did not work other times. I'm thinking it is something more than a bad relay. Anybody come across this before and have any solutions .

Possible vibration opened the female slot for the relay's male blade thus giving you a loose connection?
Always the chance #2 relay is going, if it was a used one.
