  • Running lights

    Are the orange running lights (aka turn signals) supposed to go on with the headlights or as just running lights?

    It seems in early pictures of my car they are on and later pictures they are off, they don't go on now :confused:

    Unless the Caterham is different, they should go on with both. Are they going on when you flick the headlight switch to the first detent and then out when you go to the next detent and the headlights come on, or are they only coming on when acting as the turn signal? If the latter, it could simply be that you need new bulbs. They use a dual filament bulb (1157), one filament is used for the running lights, and the other for the turn signals/hazards.

        Probably :rolleyes:


        Here they are working



        No longer




        I will check the bulbs, but seems unlikely that both would go at the same time, but then again nothing should surprise me at this point.

        Thanks

            I just checked mine,

            They are dual filament bulbs.

            Headlights on, they are on.

            Flashers on headlights off, rears work, fronts don't

            Neither front turn signal worked.

            Cycled the emergency flasher switch on and off several times.

            Right front flasher and turn signal work, left doesn't.

            Removed left bulb and reinstalled and it now works fine.

            So cycle the emergency flasher several times and see if that helps. Otherwise take the bulbs out and clean the contacts.

            Let us know if that helps.
