Rod, The first job is check the battery, and the connections must be clean and rust free.

its going to be one one of three things id of thought a fuse left headlight  is  f 16 & the right is f17 in engine conpartment - both blubs have blown on headlights or the r9 relay may be u s

hope this helps ron

& as to the side lights

just change the the side lights to a led upgrade for a brighter lite but check to see if you need error free canbus one's

It would be very unusual for both fuses to have blown, I would suspect relay. If there is one that you can swap to check then I suggest you do so.

Hi Frank Luckily it's down to the guy I bought it from as he gave me a receipt when I bought her that he would put 12mths MOT on, when it became due, with any parts and labour, as only had 6wks MOT, But we just couldn't believe it as she is totally Mint on the surface, just a few little niggles as any used car would have. Thanks Rod
