  • Lights Not Working

    About a week ago my headlights, taillights, and dash lights stopped working when all the way on (driving lights still work with tail and dash lights). Bright lights dont turn on when flipped to on but come on when I pull the lever back. Any ideas where the problem might be?

    Suspect the switch.

      How would I go about checking that?

        Sit in the driver's seat and peer at it suspiciously.

        Substituting another known good switch is the best way. Since the parking lights go off when the switch is in the headlight position there is an excellent chance that it is the switch.

        The headlight switch for '76 to '97 Minis are available from Mini Spares for UKP 10.69. I can sometimes repair them if asked nicely, but not guarantees (on the outcome not the nice part)

          Disconnect the battery before pulling the switch out through the dash plate...or be very careful.
