I have a 1971 super convertible. I can't seem to get the headlights to work. I have replaced the switch, and fuses. I also have looked over all the wiring. nothing looks out of place and looks good. What am I missing??? I do have to say I am new to VW's but not new to the game.

  Hey, sounds like we are having a similar problem.  I just finally got mine to work well but, I have no idea what I did.  The only thing I could figure was the wiring to the fuse block is corroded, so I tried to clean the contacts and they work now.  I least that is what I think may have fixed it, even though the contacts looked fine.  I suppose you could try brushing the contacts and making sure the connectors are tight.  Good luck!

The key switch must be on, first.    Check your dimmer relay make sure no connecters have dropped out of the block   Make sure you have power up to it. . you may also want to try a new relay .  I also agree  with making sure the fuse holders are bent closer to hold the fuses tight.
