    Hey Guys

    Hope your can help. Just spotted the another day whilst I was driving the driverís side angel eyes weren't on but the passager side was on. Strange I thought?
    So I had some time today after I finished work and tried to fault find whatís going on? 1st impression was the Inverter blown out, it has blown once on the another side which I replaced and its all working again. So I thought for the time being am going to link up my original side lights and stick some blubs in until I order another inverter to replace the blown one.
    Now the problem. As soon as I disconnected the inverter and linked up the original side light I got nothing from the light but the front indicator came on??
    Passager side was working fine so I can't understand why the driverís side is doing this?
    Anyhow when you put full beam on the indicator light goes off??
    I got a feeling its shorting somewhere which is causing the indicator to come on but i need some more help if anyone can give me a hand please?
