    Default Headlight flasher problem

    Basically, my problem is this. High beam and normal beam work in the headlamps, but the ability to flash the high beam by a soft pull back on the steering wheel light stalk no longer works. Even tried another stalk (albeit also not new), but the problem persists. So, I'm thinking it's a faulty relay maybe?

    Exactly... There's also this. When headlights are off, you can flash the light, but only if you pull ALL the way back on the stalk, which is wrong.

    Is it normal that there be empty relay sockets? There are 2 empty relay sockets in the engine compartment relay box, and another empty socket under the steering wheel fuse/relay area.

    Could be the reason.
    I found the wiring diagrams fairly vague with many wires going nowhere or either not making sense.
    I found my 405 manual a bit clearer but still not ideal.
    There are two 'dim-dip' relays which are not identical/interchangeable and there is a 'Dim-dip' resister which is electrically between the two relays and the low beam headlights. what it exactly does is anybodys guess.

    As for the empty sockets... have you just bought the car and the flashers dont work? Usually when you turn the headlights on you hear a 'click' from somewhere under the dash. ( I assume this applies to the 306). do you hear anything?
    Spare relay sockets could be misleading as Pugs are made for a myriad of markets with many variants of fitout.
    Sorry this is not much help but will continue to fathom out the french way of electrical diagrams and will reply if I get any revelations.

    yup, i already had a look at the wiring diagrams as well, so I know that there are two "dip/dim" relays. I just don't know which relays they are... LOL

    Thanks for all the help so far, of course

    Nope, we've actally had this car since '96. We are the first owners.

    I think I'll attach a couple pics later today/tomorrow.
