yes i think tracing back is the only thing left
i think the stalk is ok (but i will check it )as when i put it in to high beam position the blue high beam warning light comes on, on the dash. also if a pull the stalk back to flash position high beam will come on with dip...if i pull out the main head light relay nothing works ...i am pretty sure its a changeover relay at fault as it must have one to change it over from dip to beam..its just my car its not where it should be ...maybe different as a jap import..i should get i bit of time for another look tomorrow..worst case i will rewire it with my own wiring ...as it will be pre canbus..i have done this before putting a fresh supply to i switch and then to a floor mounted Lucas dip/beam switch as fitted to 1960s land rovers and other cars...
just would be less work if some one knows where the relay is
its been a reliable car had it about 4 or 5 years and its only had 2 wiper blades and bulb for the MOTs
its the most fun car i have had in the snow with its 4x4 system from a celica GT4 with a rear wheel bias rather than other small 4x4 that are really just FWD and the back drives when needed
