Headlights fail
Aug 17, 2018 (1 year ago)
Headlights and dash lights fail when using high/full beam, Headlight and dash lights work when switched on. If driving on unlit road and need to use high beam the head lights and dash lights fail when I switch beam off to accommodate on coming traffic (ie no lights at all) have to revert to DRL until I can stop and restart the car - no fault shows on dash - have had a new switch for headlights etc
its an intermittent fault and cannot resolve
Any advice welcome

I'd suggest a VAGCOM scan looking at the "Onboard supply control unit".
