Hi All,


I today I installed a headlight relay kit to my 280ZX so that the headlights receive power directly from the alternator instead of the current travelling from the dash. My only issue now is that the display constantly shows that my headlights have a fault.


Is there any way I can trick the headlight sensor into thinking that my headlights are working to remove the warning? A resistor maybe?


Hoping someone can help.


Thank you,

you could always just remove the display altogether by removing the box under the dash on the passenger side.
