Re: [T3] FW: Headlight switch

<x-flowed>I'm a bit curious about the 'parking light control light'. The T3 64-66 wiring diagram shows the front and rear parking lights fed off 58 (through the fuses) . 58 is live when the switch is on the first or second position, so the parking lights stay on when on main beam. That seems logical so there is always a red rear light showing. The T34 is the same. But the 64-66 wiring diagram shows terminal 57 feeding a 'parking light control light' which only goes live in the first switch position and goes out when you're on headlights. Are all T3s like this or is it just a US thing? (This terminal isn't used on a 64-66 T34, there's no 'parking control light'). Terminal 57 doesn't feed anything else in my T3 wiring diagram so why have 2 connections on the switch?

That's the right link and it looks just like the one here next to my keyboard. BTW, what's wrong with yours?

After an exhaustive search through all my wires I have concluded that a
faulty switch is at the root of my rear parking lights not working. You
might remmember me having a thread about this about a month ago.

Okay, I remember now.

The one problem that I see is that the late switch only has 7 terminals, which seem to be quite different (30, 30, 56, 57, 58, 58b, X) compared to the old one here (30, 30, 30, 56, 57, 57, 58, 58b.)

I don't have my switch in front of me so I couldn't tell you. I'll check
when I get home. I'm not sure but I think the two rear lights have seperate

Okay, so maybe that's why there are 2 #57 terminals. Sounds like one of them isn't getting connected. Sure seems odd that they would build the switch this way, but I was also surprised to see the 3 #30 terminals. Two of those are conjoined, but the third is completely separate....
