High beams out


Guest Anonymous

When I push my left hand side stalk forward for high beams, they don't come on. Yet, I can pull them toward me and they will flash on, so it's not the bulbs. Is this my relay? Or is it the switch?

Thanks!

Are you saying when pushed forward they down hold in place and spring back or does it hold and not work? If its the fact that its not holding in place I would think that is was the stalk switch....but do some more diagnostic to be sure

stalk (presume this is a squarelight car with left side turn signal switch)but the low beams go out when you push the lever forward to select high beams, my guess is it's in the switch. If it were the relay or bulbs the flasher mode on the stalk wouldn't work either.

You might try taking the switch out and cleaning the innards with some "tuner cleaner" spray (get from Radio Shack or an electronics supply place). You might also find something overtly broken. Sometimes they can be fixed; other times...it's parts car time. Good luck

to go to constant high beam, you should be able to push forward and the stalk should remain "notched" in place. The pull/spring-back is to say hi to other BMWs( not used for last 20 years) or to say hi to other 2002s( used frequently), or to tell that POS in front of you to move over. I have not had to do surgery in that area- so if it is not staying in place when in forward position, maybe someone has a tech tip. Good luck: be sure to run H4 80/100s( relayed)- they illuminate very well.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
