So,,I got the flasher but what port does it go in. I have two, green and red. Okay, I think we need to call Jay and ask do you just happen to have another flasher for the hazards? I just don't trust the schematics anymore like they are the bible. Cause they aren't even close.
So my excitement about flashers is put on hold,, but not the light pods.
I was thinking about Snow's comments about using whale bone to fix a switch (sounds better then dense fiberglas) and I was lubing the pods anyway and readjusting the hood because it was a bit out of square and hitting when I flashed the lights. The new hood gas strut introduced another issue to consider when closing the hood. Close it on the cylinder side as not to load up the hood hinge unduly. So I went back and started fumbling with the headlight switch while leaning on the car from the outside. The lights went up,, right side first then the left. I tried to repeat it and after some repeated tries,, up they came again. Eureka,, Mark saying the car sat, use a hammer and tap the fan motors and Snowrx's whale bone gave me an idea. CONTACTS. The next thing you know I had the dash left side open and the light switch out. Some mouse dropping inside. Glad I had an engineer at some point watching over things. A lil vacuuming and on to the switch. The contacts were flashed over and needed cleaning. ( look at the third and fourth pictures) A lil Dremel action on low speed to get the build up off and then four hundred wet dry paper between the contacts. Popped open a new tube of dialectic grease and a small drill bit and everything got a lil dab. Needless to say, the lights are 100% now. Tomorrow night we tackle the flashers and I am pulling the hazard switch out for the same maintenance. Thank you snowrx. Lesson learned listen to what folks say, in there lies clues to Lotus ills you haven't experienced or fixes to ones you have now.
