The way these cars work is the light switch sends a command to the Body Systems Interface which then sends voltage to the bulbs.
the light switch isn't actually connected to the bulbs.
So if I were doing this the first thing I'd do is scan the BSI for any stored faults.
You really need Peugeots diagnostics for this.
Other diagnostic can give false readings.

Not being funny but have you checked the bulbs as it isn't uncommon for two to go at once

could try disconnecting the brown connector(middleone )of the psf1(underbonnet fuse box) to make sure there is no water in there.Open bonnet and turn off ignition for ten minutes first.
