Main Beam not working.

Hi everyone. I'm really struggling here. The main beam on my XJ6 (TDVI Sovereign 2.7 diesel) doesn't want to work. When the stalk is operated, the blue light on the dash lights on but the main beam refuses to work. The fuse and bulbs are fine. My local auto electrician who I have used before can't work out how the headlamps are powered. He's awaiting some data from Germany...? Somewhere in between the switch (stalk) and the lamps is a relay or similar but at the moment it's a mystery..Can anyone help?

Thanks

Just a thought as the manual is from an american site it is possible that locations are swapped side-to-side for RHD so maybe located on drivers side.

Hope you get it sorted 🙂

Hi John, the diagram was unfortunately not the right one for my car..but thanks for trying to help..the issue was water ingress having degraded some of the wires in the loom. Two new wires later my headlamps and my front passenger window are fully working again.

Cheers
