Start with the headlamp bulbs. I changed mine last week as the dipped filaments had blown on both bulbs at the same time.

Doh! Just re read your post You say you have checked your headlamp bulbs? Then you are on new ground aint been there. The two fuses under the bonnet fuse box for head & dip 10 & 11 ?(this is from memory 10 amp & 15 amp) only have voltage on them when the head or dipped circuit is on. There have been issues with the column switch but its fairly rare. As everything is controled by the Bsi,its worth lifting the battery lead (follow the reset procedure on the faq section) Its worth a shot as it costs nowt.

Let us know how you get on.
