Probably because the dimmer switch is turned off. Turn the dimmer switch up and see if the dashlights and radio illumination lamps come on.
Dimmer switch controls the selection of either Hi-Beam or Low-Beam headlights
I suspect the switch is bad.
No. Going out of the manufactures recommended rating is not recommended. The dimmer will build up heat,that the heat sinks can not dissipate. The additional heat will eventually destroy the device.
Throw the car away and that will fix all problems.
the dimmer switch is the far left relay on the fuse/relay rack under the front bonnet, pull up and wiggle the relay to remove it
it is the dimmer switch on the dash roll it all the way up
that is true
The simplest example of Ohm's Law is an old fashioned dimmer switch in your house. As you turn the dimmer switch up, the light gradually brightens until it reaches full intensity. Conversely, you can turn the dimmer switch down, and the light gradually darkens.The dimmer switch is a variable resistor. That is, the electrical resistance of the dimmer switch changes as you rotate the knob. Ohm's Law tells us that the flow of current is directly proportional to the voltage, and inversely proportional to the resistance. Since the voltage across the switch doesn't change, the only thing that changes is the resistance when you turn the dimmer switch knob.As you turn the dimmer switch down, you are actually increasing the resistance of the dimmer switch. The current is inversely proportional to the resistance, so as the resistance goes up, the current (flow of electricity) goes down, and the light gets darker. This is an example of Ohm's Law.NOTE: This example applies to rheostat switches, and does not apply to modern current-clipping dimmer switches. Rheostat switches are seldom used now because they can overheat, but the illustration is still a useful example of Ohm's Law.
what causes rear wheel rotors to heat up
turn the dimmer switch up.
