Euro Headlights

I'd have to agree with the poor relay setup as well...or are you sure you 
also connected the low beam input wire to the relayed harness in a solid 

I find this somewhat interesting as I've had a similar problem on my car 
however very intermitently, and I'm using the harness from Blau.  The lights 
usually work fine, but I think three or four times, I've had my lights only 
work on the brites.  I know it's not corroded relays as I switched the 
relays around and problem happened again after that, nor is it a bad ground 
as there is a single common ground for the entire relayed wiring loom.

In my case, the only other thing I could think of was a bad connection from 
the low beam wire in the factory loom to the low beam input on the relayed 
harness.  I haven't been able to kill my problem due to it's 
intermitance...whenever I get in to try and fix it, the problem has gone 
away.  So at this point things work fine through no effort on my part.

Glad to see you are on the Euro headlight topic.

I installed the turbo lights on my 91 200 20v two years ago, along with
a direct to battery relay kit, all from 2Bennett. Great pattern, lots
of light. I live in the country and the brights save me from deer.
There are two problems that arose after installation, (1) bulb out
warning on the telltale and (2) lights will not come off bright without
turning the lights completely off.
(1) I cured by bending the pin on the light relay per a suggestion
somewhere on this list.
(2) I have not figured out yet. I know of one other 91 200 20v owner on
the list who had this problem but has sold his car.

Has anyone figured out how to cure this? Going in the dark, even for a
couple of seconds, on a country road is too exciting and completely
unacceptable to passengers.
