    heater fan and headlight problem

    hey guys, heading into work yesterday i started getting a bit hot so went to put the fans on to cool myself down only they have stopped working. this happened the other day but they decided to work again, the temp dial still works as i can feel it get hot if i turn the dial to red but even the rear window demister button doesnt work. any ideas?

    oh and my headlight keeps flickering and i noticed condensation on the inside of the lens, what can i do?

    thank you in advance

    Another one that works nights and appreciates the heater, the same happend to me in our work van. I checked the connections and the fuse and then tried it and it worked ok, been fine since.

    It could be a few things though, im sure some one will be along to help soon.
