when i turn the light switch to just parking lights, the car is fine.

when i turn on the actuall front/back lights, there is a short.

it has melted 3 of my accelerator cables at the most inconvenient times

any suggestions/ spare accelerator cables i can buy?


First suggestion is to fix it before you have an engine fire. :eek:


The accelerator cables are melting because they're being used as grounds, probably for the 30A headlight circuit. The roadster folks are all too familiar with this issue. :(


You need to check grounds and definitely the headlight circuit. Remove and clean all connections. Dielectric grease is your friend.
