  • [Corsa B] 1.4 sport

    So i have an issue that doesn't stop the car from running but may create other problems if left unsorted, the headlight beam adjuster on the inside of the car does something weird when i have the car off or on if i put the adjuster to 0 it turns my headlights on and you can hear an electrical like pulse through the speakers, i was thinking bad earth somewhere but not a clue about where to start with this, help would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    I've only just spotted that your post hasn't been answered.

    I take it that when you say turning the headlight levelling control to zero, actually turns on the headlights, you mean that when the headlight switch is 'ON' and the levelling control is in any other position, the headlights do not work.

    It would seem to indicate that there is a poor connection (either live or earth) in the headlight units - The effect of turning the control to zero gives the poor connection a 'wiggle', coursing the lights to come on.

    Suggest that you check/clean ALL of the connections in the area of the headlights.

      im not entirely sure at this point as to what is going on and no this is when the headlight switch is set to off so it doesn't matter if the engine/ignition is on or off but its actually gradual so the headlight beam adjuster has 4 settings and when on the bottom setting its fine but as you go up a setting i get low side lights then the next is normal side lights and the final setting gives me full headlights not high beam though,

      the car will do this with or without the beam adjuster plugged in and i have checked all the plugs going to the headlights and they are fine :/

      also when the headlights are on the level control does nothing and doesn't turn them off or adjust the beam but i don't care about being able to adjust it as i can do so manually haha

        The head light levelling control should have no effect on the lights intensity and certainly not on the side lights.

        As I said before, it sounds to me as if there is a poor electrical connection - Poor/dirty connections introduce a measure of resistance into the circuit, and whilst the voltage will probably remain the same, with resistance in the circuit, there isn't enough current flowing to make the lights work, or at least, not to work at full intensity.
