Re: 4ksq tail light/head light problem

I had the same thing happend to my '86 4kcsq. It was the contacts on the
headlight switch. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the current for
the headlights goes through this switch. I was able to re-establish
contact and have since installed relays for both low and high beam, with
the switch only having current to trip the relays, power to the lights
fused direct from battery.

Hope this helps - jon
