1969 Mark III Headlight Indicator

Hey Bill,

My headlight indicator light at the top started acting weird. Normally, I'm pretty sure it only lights up for a second or two right after you turn on the lights. But now, it stays lit up when I have my headlights on. If I had the lights on and quickly switched it off-then-on, it lights up instantly and stays on. If I turn it off, wait a few seconds, then turn them back on, it lights up after a few seconds and stays on. I'm worried, because I don't want the light to over heat the panel or plastic. Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

John

Greetings John -

You don't mention if you have the Automatic Headlamp Dimmer option. If you have this option and it is turned ON, the system may be trying to warm up and operate. The owners manual will explain this operation to you if you have one. Or are you referring to one of the over head panel light indicators above the windshield. This light advises you if the headlamp covers are open or not with the headlamps turned on. The manual should explain this operation as well.

Sincerely,

Bill
