2011 (facelift) sidelights

Can I ask if anybody can explain if the sidelights on my 2011 facelift XF have failed. When my lights are OFF the LEDs are on constantly (good). When I select my sidelights only, the LEDs dim but no other light illuminates. When I select main headlights, they work as intended. I will post a few pictures in a while but was wondering if there are sidelights or if both bulbs have gone (could it be a fuse?).

Cheers, 

Mac

I have uploaded photos of the lights to illustrate my question (pun intended :yahoo: ) - hopefully this will help you to help me!! I haven't checked closely, but are the 7 LEDs around the inner light purely for the indicator, or is this the sidelight that isn't working? I'll check tonight when I get home but thought somebody might be able to help.

Cheers,

Sequence is right if using settings manually on stalk.Off Day running light BRIGHT LED ..Side lights ON Dim LED..MAIN Lights ON dim LED

The LED are you parking / daylight running & side lights, There's no other side light bulbs unlike the old model

If set on auto then the sequence apart from unlocking or locking doors will differ with prevailing light conditions.
