Just bought a 19 plate corsa. Not sure about the lights. I don't have auto lights. My light switch rotary dial has 3 positions 1 off 2 sidelights 3 headlights, when I rotate the light switch from fully off the following happens

First click dash dims rear lights come on drl lights dim no side lights come on so as drls dim front gets effectively darker

Second click headlights come on rear lights stay dim dash stays dim

My question is are my sidelights working or not as when turning to sidelight position the front ends up darker as drls dim but nothing else comes on.

Please can anyone advise.

Michael

The drl bulbs on the Corsa E are dual filament 21/5 watts,
so switch 1 = drl @21watts, switch 2 = sidelights @5watts,switch 3= headlights and sidelights (5watts)

Is it right then that when I switch to sidelights from off the front end gets dimmer. Seems a bit odd to me? No other bulbs come on the drls turn dim and no sidelights bulbs light up

That's working correctly, bear in mind you shouldn't be driving on sidelights, they are for parking.
