Just noticed my high beam warning light is not working. The lights are working perfectly and no other faults are apparent. Looking behind the dash it appears to be an electronic module ie. No bulb to replace.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Martin, yes, mine slowly failed, followed by the ABS and EBD lights. All the lights are part of a module. Williams changed it for me, from memory the new module was less than £100, which I felt was cheap for a Morgan electronics module!!!
After replacing it I noticed that the main beam warning light stays lit for a few seconds as part of the pre-start lights check.

Thanks Peter

I might take the module out myself and see if its repairable.

Quick update guys:

So it quite a job to get the circuit board out, but once out I did a quick check with a multimeter only to find no faults. So I re-soldered the joints either side of the LED and re-tested. Works perfectly, so nothing more than a dry joint.

All back together now and every thing back to normal.
