ITS A PAIN COZ NEED IT DONE FOR MOT SOON.
I would associate that behaviour with the operation of the foglights.
I am understanding that what you call the normal headlights = dipped beam.
These will normally work if your spot/fog lights are on.
The full/main beam
on the other hand is not
meant to operate when spot/fog are on because of the dazzling effect. So make sure the foglight switch is in the off position.
If any electrical work has been done in the stalk area, it is possible that some wiring has been swapped between sides and fog causing the function to change. Is this something that started recently without justification or have you only just bought the car and don't know?
I don't know if this effects your MOT certification, after all, the lights all work. Maybe one of the MOT guys can come on board and advise you.
All this aside Zoe, I don't understand why you want to go down dark country lanes flashing at people!!!
OOPS! Just re-read your 1st post and noted it is a '93... can't be a software problem I don't think.
