Lightbulb Condensation in day runners

Hey guys, just got myself a 2015 108 Allure, so thought I'd sign up here and get to grips with the brand/fellow owners!

I picked it up from Arnold Clark three days ago and had to book it into their garage this morning as the oil pressure light came on (a totally different story that I may ask about in another sub forum) and there is condensation in my right hand day runner LED lights, so it doesn't come on, whilst the left one is fine.

In the report they gave me back they said they had called Peugeot, who told them condensation is normal for 10 mins overnight especially in this weather, but it's constantly had condensation, and I'm assuming if condensation is affecting the lights actually coming on then there's surely a problem there?

Thanks for any help!

If it's constantly got condensation in it, the bulbholder may be corroded.

I had light corrosion in a brake light bulbholder and had to take a Dremel to the contact surfaces to restore the connection.

A change of air can cure/reduce condensation. A short blast of dry compressed air into the unit may do the trick. If you haven't got an air line, you can get "aerosol" cans of compressed air.
