Here is the problem:
Side, Dip, Fogs & rear lights all working as they should, until main beam activated either flash or permanent. Then lights go out except for side lights & rear lights & fogs. The blue dash board main beam light comes on as normal.
A Citroen specialist said the problem was probably a faulty Comm Unit, quoted £230 + fitting & vat.
Before taking this action I replaced the fuses (the light fuses are in the engine compartment box, not the under dash box as it says in the hand book) and bulbs and searched the internet for various "fixes" & "resets" all of which produced zero results. I cheched the wiring as far as I could for breakages.
At this point I decided the dealer was probably correct & bought & fitted a new comm unit.
Guess what - no change - still the lights go out when main beam activated.
One thing I have noticed today is that when the engine & ignition is turned off the main beam lights will flash once only when the switch is used in flash mode. If the switch is used a second time only the blue dash board light comes on, not the main beam lights.
Can anyone help with this problem?
Thanks - a confused newbie
