Xr8 Headlights

I have a ED XR8, and have a problem with the headlights,

Whenever i turn on on the high beams the main headlights go off and just the parkers and the high beams stay on

are they supposed to do this??

Re: Xr8 Headlights

All four headlights are supposed to be on when hi beam is activated.

Looks pretty dark without the low beams as well, doesn't it?

I have the same problem, but mine is because I recently had to install a new combination switch (indicators wipers etc) when I installed cruise control to the car.

The replacement combo switch was from a standard falcon, not an XR, so the switch is different. I am trying to rectify the problem now.

If this could be your problem, then I will keep you up to date with how I go.
