Customer Question

Hi there I wonder if you could help,
I have recently bought a 14 plate S Max Titianium X sport . I have been having a play to get use to the car. And I have noticed that when I move the light switch to the first position ie side lights the lights come on the back of the car but no lights illuminate on the front of the car, the only thing that happens is the drls dimm slightly. Is this normal or does it have a fault , the chassis number is *****
. Thanks for your time . Also if it is a fault will it be covered under warranty?

Hi there ,good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response
Ok this is normal operation of the newer model ford vehicles with higher level headlight setup (fitted with day time running lamps )
They no longer have front side light bulbs therefore the daytime running lamps are the front side lights thus they dim slightly when you select the side lights on
I have had many customers return with this quiery due to the sales-person not informing them of this new setup
I hope this has put your mind at rest
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

That's brill thanks for the insight , there are bulbs to the inner most part of the headlights (middle of car) that don't come on at all . I have only tested while the vehicle is stationary and I first thought these where the sidelight bulbs ? Or are these likely to be ones that come on when the vehicle is turning like on the new seat Leon's?
Thanks again
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
Hi there Leon
Ok the bulbs you see will be the cornering lamps that illuminate at certain steering angles to aid lighting when going into a into a bend or corner
Kind regards ***** *****
