80 Series High Beam and Spotties Not Working

Unread post by keep_on_runnin » March 3rd, 2018, 6:12 pm

Hi there, here's hoping someone can help me.
I have an 80 series Land Cruiser with 100w halogen spotties and 55w HID H4 globes on the inners each with external ballasts.
When I flick forward from low beam to high beam occasionally all lights go out. Occurrence is becoming more frequent. I have checked high beam switch contacts under the steering column and appear ok - no sign of burning, arcing, corrosion etc etc. I gave the contacts a light paper file anyway. But didn't help the lighting problem.
Do I need a load module on each of the HID H4's?
Or something else causing problem?
Thanks,
Regards,
Mark

Hi all, problem fixed. I installed an in-line load module to each headlight. This simulates the factory load of the hi beams so that the relays operate correctly.
