Sidelights where are you ?.


Does anyone know where the sidelights are. On my 2016 model U.K. spec you turn the switch to sidelight option but nothing seems to happen. There is no display on the console where the dip or high bean shows up. I can’t see anything on the front of the car. So I’m assuming that the DRL are they but what about the rear does that light up ?.
I’m confused to where it is, if not why have it on the light switch it doesn’t make sense !.

Please advise

Thank you in advance

On mine the DRLs and front sidelights share the housing (and maybe the bulb).
With ignition on, lights off: just the DRL/sides are on bright.
With lights set to side: the DRL/sides are on dim and the tail-lights are also on.
With lights set to head: with ignition on you get everything, but with ignition off you get nothing - not even side lights.

So if you've been testing by turning the switch past the side, to the head position, but with ignition off, then what you see is correct.

Now gone electric.

As Mike says. The DRL/sidelights are the same P20/5W with the 20W filament as the DRL and the 5W filament as the sidelight.
