Hiya,

Im new here and I have a slight problem with my car, I have a 54 plate Mazda 6 2.0D Sport which has xenon lamps as standard.

I have noticed that when driving with the lights on you can see the standard beam lights flickering, and sometimes one of the lights doesnt work at all.

Its not always the same light that doesnt come on, so I dont think its a bulb issue, but its getting very annoying and wanted to know if its a common issue, or if anyone has any ideas as to what may be causing it?

Thanks,
Matt

Could be a bad ballast if they are HID

Have you checked the voltage coming out of the battery as well? My car developed a similar problem in it's second year and I do not recall ever seeing it happen after changing the battery (which need to be changed cos the brother somehow managed to leave the door ajar and the lights on for most of a weekend.) just get your self a cheap 3 bob multimeter and check what voltage is across the terminals of the battery. With the car off, should be around 12v, with the car running should be seeing 14.4v


Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience. My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right. Nothing is fool proof, fools are too inventive.

Hi

mtutt: Did you find out what the problem was? I have the same problem with my xenon lamps. The voltage over the battery is 13.8 when engine is running.
The lights work fine when i turn them on and engine is not running.
I have tried to clean and all the wiring and bend and move while light is on. then nothing happens.
It would be strange if low voltage is the problem since it works fine when enigne is of.

Thanks
