Title: S1 Rallye S - No dipped headlights
Post by: motoloco on 05 April, 2020, 11:49:13 AM
Hello
Iím sure I saw a post on this topic when I didnít have a problem, but I canít find it now.

The dipped lights wonít come on on my S1 Coupe. Sidelights are ok, but selecting headlights on the dah pull switch gives main beam only, irrespective of the position of the column switch. Thereís no click from the headlamp relay as the headlands come on, but it does click if the headlamp flasher is pressed.
I suspect the column switch, but donít know how to test it?
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.  Iím now going to try and rectify a charging problem on my old Moto Guzzi..... 

Nick

I had a similar problem on my Appia which has a very similar switch arrangement. The solution was to remove the switch, cleaned carefully all the contacts (including those on the column) and checked they made effective contacts. Helpful to make a schematic diagram. It was OK after all that, Andrea
