High beam wire 3008 1.6 hdi (2010)

Post by JohnMuppet »

Hi guys!

I’m in the process of mounting an LED light bar on my 2010 peugeot 3008 1.6 hdi, but I’m struggling to find the wire from the switch to the high beam.

I have disconnected the socket from the headlamps and measured wirth a mulitmeter, but no luck. Suspecting that it shows constant current as long as it’s disconnected, but I might be doing something wrong.

Does anyone know wich wire i connect to, or how I can locate it?

Either nick into the high beam wire that goes to the bulb through a relay with a fused feed or just run a switched fused wire direct from the battery. Old school still works.

Thanks!
Was planning on doing so, but I couldn’t figure out which wire that was the high beam positive since I got 12v constant current on all the potential wires.

Tried measuring directly inside the housing and got 12v constant there as well. Seems like it’s a negative trigger.

Does anyone know if this is common on Peugeot or other psa vehicles?

Cant think of any PSA vehicle with negative operated exterior lamps.
What are you using to check the power at the lamp? i would use another filament (not LED) bulb to check. This should be very simple to identify so im not sure what you are doing wrong?
