Electric problem Datsun 260Z 1975

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am finishing building up a 260Z 2+2 75 mod (European model). After installing all wires mostly of the electrical components is working well, but not main lights. They are working but the blue light  in the  speedometer is lightning in both positions (near and long) and in one of the dimmer switch position both long and near is lightening up in the bulb and there is + currency in both wires to the bulbs. The turn signals is not working to but the hazard is working ok. Anybody who can help me with some advice here?

Regards Geir

Download a Factory Service Manual and wiring diagram from the site below.  The headlight low and high beam are controlled by the ground circuit at the turn signal stalk.  Both circuits have power when the switch is turned on but only the one that is grounded will light.  Seems like you might have a short to ground on your high beam circuit.
