Citi Golf Park Lights Not Working

Post by MahomedOz » Fri Feb 16, 2018 6:32 pm

Good Day

I have A 1991 citi golf which has just two headlights. My main (Second Click) and bright lights work fine however i cant seem to get my park lights to work. If i click the light switch once, the dash lights and rear park light comes on but no light comes on at the front. If i switch it all the way my main beam will come on. My headlamp has only one globe and its the original hella lamps.

Where do i start to try to get my parks to work? Isbit a globe issue or is it wiring. Do i need to get spot lights and change the grill to gave park lights.

1991 and earlier Citi parks are in the front indicators.

First check the globe's are not single contacts ones and that the correct lamps are fitted with 3 wires going in to them.

If the car has been modded to newer style front indicators (2 wires) then your only option is to install the parks into the headlamps, same as 93 model on.

This will entail installing new style headlamps with the hole for the park globe's below the main bulbs.

Once done track down the wiring and make up a small extension lead to connect your new parks to the existing wiring.

If it's all original and intact have a look at your fuses. Park lights and tail lamps are on the same circuit and if the fronts are not working niether are the rears if the fuses are blown.

No rocket science needed here to fix this problem, just a test light and some common sense.

Should be a straight fit as the same harness is used - look for a loose connector at each headlamp.
