1986 2m4 5 speed

There's a good chance the previous owner found out his Isolation Relay was fried and jury-rigged the wiring in your car because the isolation relays aren't available anymore. If that's what you find when you go to reconnect everything, then there is a simple fix to bypass the isolation relay but retain all the operating features by jumping the wires like this:



Good luck.

You can also go to youtube and search for Buddycraigg and headlight. He has a complete series of videos on how it works and how to test.
