Hi...have you checked all the fuses with a test light..the sidelights must be fused but could be off any fuse...I would start there...

It is correct to say that the sidelights are not protected by fuses. They are controlled by electronic switches in the engine compartment fusebox. One can only assume that these are current limiting by design.

From reading other posts here, it seems that the 207 engine compartment fusebox is vulnerable to water ingress, so I suggest that it the first place to look.

Default Side lights

The fuse box is dry.

If its a current limiting issue how is that caused, contact fault or wire break?

Also, to set auto lights on and off, this car uses the radio and display in the centre of the dash. The setting for auto lights has disappeared from the personalisation menu. I'm certain it was there before! It must be connected to the side lights issue?

You misunderstood. The current limiting feature is my conjecture to explain how they achieve circuit protection without a fuse. I do not suggest it is connected with your issue.

If you think there is a connection to the vanished auto lights feature, I suggest a BSI reboot.

I'll look at that, thanks.

Oddly, last year the mot had just been done when we bought the car. Afterwards my Daughter had the insurance company fit a box. I wonder if thats causing an issue as it was clipped into the loom apparently.

Now you say that..I would try and find where they clipped into a loom and disconect (if possible)and do a bsi reset..their equpment may be giving the bsi a bad current drain on the sidelight circuit and locking it out to save further damage......

Hi Noddy, its going for test tomorrow. Ive checked all I can for voltage etc, can't see anything wrong. May be the side lights havent worked since insurance put box in, although I was told he'd performed a full system check afterward.
Thanks for your advice. Will let you know what tomorrow brings.
