So, we had a reasonably big 'bump' in our 2018 3008 Allure a month ago, basically damage to front bumper, and left side fog lamp. After a near three weeks in Accident Repair we have new bumper, fog lamp unit and reg plate and looks great (picked up on Friday just gone). I have been told it has been through quality control twice. Accident Repair Center pretty poor comms but thats another story.
Yesterday was the first time we have driven in the dark and headlights (full LED) switched on. Within a few seconds of switching on we got a orange spanner, flashing green dipped headlight indicator and a service message stating "check the dipped beam headlights".
The headlights both dipped, full beam as well as daytime running and indicators are physically working correctly, auto headlights come on and off correctly and cornering lights come on when expected. When I switch them off error goes away but after swiching back on error returns after the few seconds.
There are no codes showing on OBD.
Now as stated the ARC have not been great so far and I have stopped using my local Peugeot dealer (another long story). I do have an extended Peugeot Warranty and my local Citreon garage now look after me (not that they are particulary great either but better than the other two).
Before I contact either on Monday I wanted to check if anyone could shed any thoughts on what could have gone wrong or things to try? Could this be due to the repair work or just a coincidental fault? I want to believe when the ARC rebuilt the front end they have just not plugged in a sensor or something, especially so as the actual lights all seem to be working.
I also suspest the ARC will say its not us, it left them working and my garage will want to charge me for diagnostics, albeit Id try to push through warranty. Just want to be as prepared as possible for the likley fight ahead. Obviously if anyone has a quick win idea then please also send my way.
Thank you in advance.
