    On the day, as it happened, couldn't have been the switching side of the relay because the main beams came on without being switched on via the stalk (so relay coil not energised).
    It was just a...

    OK, got it now. I'm more used to the presence of a second coil when there is an induced voltage (eg, ignition coil) but there it is acting as a step-up transformer.



    30 Amp installed - as...

    Thanks RIS - info there I was unaware of. If I understand correctly, in essence, when a relay is switched off, momentarily (as the plunger travels back within the coil) it acts as a mini (linear)...

    Sorted - I think.



    That relay was the cause - it could self connect thus bringing the main beams on. Which then,



    caused the other symptoms.

    To install a new SAM - what is required in the way of coding etc, what (software) is needed to do it, and who in the NE of Scotland is offering this service?

    See above. Conversion done properly ten years back without glitch in all that time. All the existing wire (to bulbs) has to do is trip the (additional) relay.

    Conversion to 100W bulbs done some ten years ago. Done properly with additional relay and fuse to it.

    As per the title, headlights - main beam I think (the inner ones) and sidelights at front only, illuminated without switch being turned and hence can't be switched off.

    Working on it!



    At 82,000 miles, it's probably had one rebuild and heading for a second.
    For now, the state of the electrics is more of a concern. Sea levels are rising and most of seems to...

    I've seen its MOT history but that's about as much as I know (other than it's a Pure with some options eg auto, pods). Curious as...

    Thanks TK.
    The 'insert' - is it pretty robust? Is it more robust than the rest of the ZEE?
    Cloning and coding if required - by STAR only, or can Icarsoft, Delphi, etc do that?

    SAM questions.

    Apologies for the misleading title - I've now realised it is the ZEE I need info on.
    Is the ZEE as potentially troublesome as a SAM? If one needs to be replaced, is another a plug'n'play exercise or...
