Sure you haven't accidentally disabled auto headlights ?

Not sure about disabling the headlights. Can you please confirm how I check my headlights status. Thank you.

It should tell you in owners h/book . No idea on that car but on some cars the switch is on the end of one of the the stalks and pushed in to set on/off . Could also be faulty sensor or possibly switch .

many thanks. The problem is resolved. Your suggestion to check the switch at the end of the stalks paid off. Many thanks.
