    this could be a simple one for someone.

    when i unlock the car, the front foglights and sidelights come on (in the dark) as they have always done. HOWEVER they seem to have stopped working when i LOCK the car and im sure they always did light up for about 10 seconds! theres nothing in the cluster that i can find, except possibly to turn them off (i dont tend to alter much there, just check my mpg, temp oil level and change cd track etc)

    any ideas? thanks in advance

    The lights only come on if the car has been driven,, if the car has been standing outside unlocked and you lock it the lamps will not come on, that is the way mine work
