DS5 Headlight Levelling switch / Fuse ?

Post by DSlover »

Can't believe I'm back on here so soon..... for those that may, or may not have seen my posts, I've been in and out of the fuse box's / Relays these past few days, went to adjust my headlamp level last night and nothing happened ? moved the swivel switch back and forth but headlights just stayed put ? now i haven't moved this since purchasing the car so don't know if it's me delving in the fuse box's these past few days, or something that's a common problem or been there a while and i haven't picked up on it ? Either way ..... is there a fuse or relay i can check ? ...... Here we go again !.... much obliged as always. :roll:

Obviously the engine has to be running or ignition positive on. There is no fuse - and the command is controlled via the BSI directly.

Okay Marc, so is the only option a duff levelling switch then ? ....once again I've checked as much as possible, everything else on the car works fine ? all side lights, headlights, main beam, even the lower corner fog lights light up when you turn steering left and right, but headlights do not move at all, not one bit, and appear to be stuck on the lowest setting, barely lighting the road ahead unless you use main beam ?Anyone with similar fault or info greatly appreciated.

The only advice I can offer where both the headlamps are not responding is:
  • Headlamp height correction switch
  • Supply wire for the height correction switch
  • BSI
  • Wire linking the height correction switch to the headlamps
Here's an extract of the switch wiring and earths:

6600 is the Headlamp Correction Unit
2610 (left) and 2615 (right) are the headlamps. The wiring enters interconnections before emerging out of another loom at the headlamps.

Thank you Marc, that gives me something to look at, can check some of those things with multi meter, but not an Auto Electrician so may be over and above my tech skills ! ....as an aside, do all DS5 have active swiveling headlights, ie: they move side to side and slightly around corners, or is this only the top D Sport models ?

Only those models with Xenon Dual-Function Directional headlamps. They are generally not standard and only available as part of an option pack.
