Best Answer

On my 1990 Mazda 121, the low beam (and sometimes high beam) lights fail due to a faulty light switch on the steering wheel console. I have to pull it apart and clean up the contacts about once every year when it does it. The tail lights also go out. I can tell it has failed again as the dashboard lighting goes out. Andrew.
