Look in the fuse box near the battery (i.e. in the engine compartment). The headlight relay is a larger rectangular relay. Unplug it, take the plastic cap off the top of the relay assembly and take a good look at the solder joints, especially where the terminal pins mount to the PCB. It is quite likely that one or more have cracked. Simply reflow the solder with an iron and some flux. BTW this problem can affect the hazard warning/indicator relay too (this one's behind the fuse panel in the glove box and you have to take the glove box out to get to it :-( Hope this helps AndyH '94 9000 CDE > > Pete > >
