Head lights not working - Megane

Hi, I am having problems with the lights on my megane (2001 DTI), when I turn on the lights the dip beam comes on as normal, when I switch to high beam the light in the dash changes to high beam but nothing happens to the lights. I have checked all the fuses and they are OK. My friend has a 2000 megane and he also has the same problem. Has anyone else experience this and if so what was the cause. Thanks.

Start with the easy things first.

Check the bulbs,and if they are OK then ideally you need a multimeter or test light and see if you have any feed to the bulbs.The earlier Meganes had a tendency to lose the earths to the headlights,but I think the later ones are better.

Check the bulbs and for a feed,then get back to us.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
