lights on all time
« on: January 14, 2015, 07:52:49 PM »
hi folks, got a little problem with a 3 day old Galaxy Titanium, when headlamps are turned Off on switch, they are on, along with tail lights/sidelights. turn the switch to sidelight position, the side lights only are on, turn to headlight position, headlights are on, turn to auto position they are on all time even in direct sunlight, can anyone shed some light(lol) on the problem, thanks
Andy

I would suggest taking it back to the dealer. If it was a type of DRL it would only appear on the front lights not the rears too, something isn't right.

looked up car on FordEtis, in the huge list of what is or isn't fitted to it near the bottom it states 'with daytime running lights', explains a lot

I wouldn’t worry about it, it sounds like a safety feature
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.
