1963 bug has floor mounted foot operated headlight dip switch.

Seems like my 6v headlights work on normal but when I stamp on the foot switch to activate full beam the headlights go out!!

I have checked the connectins to the headlight unit and even changed the bulbs but it still won't work

Any ideas??

Cheers

Have a look see if there is a relay that maybe knackered...

My '71 Bug (obviously 12v and different electrics) but the relay packed up and main beam wouldn't work. Replaced the relay and job done.

Your '63 switch wiring looks like:



J2 is the foot dimmer switch.

On full beam, the switch feeds 6V on the Wh wire to 2 fuses
(one for each side).

It's possible that both fuses are bad/corroded/poor contact,
so check that first.

Next, use a tester to see if there is 6V at the Wh wire
connected to both fuses. If no voltage the foot switch
may be bad or a wire may have pulled off the switch..
