Hello and Welcome..
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise..
Can I just clarify a couple of things?
Are you saying the main beams and dash go out - ?
Do the outside sidelights go off as well?
When you say its "still showing faults" -- what exactly do you mean there?

Hello again Mark -
Thank you for your reply..
If you could let me have the fault codes - I could look further into that for you... If you do - please give me the cars Full reg also.
--But essentially, the area that needs investigation is the actual switch - for the lights.. The column switch can be checked also and should be as a break there can cause this - it breaks the circuit from the main switch... Wires can break going to the back of the column switch ( as indeed they can on the main switch).. but often the fault lies within the switch.
A competent Auto Electrician may be best for this Mark given the garage haven't found it - Its a case of testing the circuit with a meter at the back of the switches which will easily track the fault down - whether its at the switch/s.. or - if not - back at the main control LCM ..
( Light control module )
Thats the way to find and sort this out for you..
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
~~~~ Meantime - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that .
.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --
Best Rgds, MIKE.
