RE: [T3] So ungrounded (fwd)

I would like to add something in general about fuses and erratic
electrical systems.  

Always buy the expensive (I want to say ceramic, but I am having a block
right now) fuses for your car.  The cheap ones that are made of cheap
plastic have a coefficient of expansion (thermal) such that with a
temperature increase, they deform (over a long time) and the
spring-loaded holder is no longer sufficient for a good electrical

One of the first things that I do on all my german cars is to make sure
they dont have the cheap fuses in them.  Its a cheap fix.  Once again,
its one of those things where I cant really explain which fuses i'm
talking about, but if you pay attention, and see them next to each other
you can see a clear difference.  Maybe someone else knows what I am
talking about and can explain better.

Hello Brian, 
Check your fuses. Make sure that the fuse to the high beam on the bad
isn't blown or (the more probable problem) corroded.
