Hey guys, newbie question here, my mum just bought a 55 plate 1.2 ford fiesta zetec, no manual included :(

was wondering, what the different toggles for the lights are? i can work out side lights and off obviously :P but can't work out which is your normal driving headlights? think shes been going to tesco at night with full beam on blinding everybody in sight!

any help would be very much appreciated, thanks!

Yeah, im getting full beam and foglights no bother at all, its just the normal headlights im looking for, regular headlights, i can get sidelights easily enough (first click to the right, fog-lights are pulling the stalk out and full beam are full turn, where the hells normal lights! annoying the !Removed! off me tbh :(!

Turn the round dial switch one click.thats side lights..............turn it once more ( two clicks ) and you have NORMAL lights! Thats why there are two symbols for the lights on the switch. http://www.fordparts..._switch_788.htm

What your calling Full beam btw is NORMAL ( regular ) headlights - two clicks to the right or full turn as you said! ............ to get "High beam" headlights, turn your normal/regular headlights on and pull the left hand stalk back to switch FULL beam on!

If you didnt get the manual i`d try Ford Uk and see if they will send you one free, also if you didnt get the radio code let me know and i`ll tell you how to get your serial number and i`ll give you the code ;)

Sorry to dig up this old(ish) thread, but I done a search and didnt want to start a new one for a quick question. You know when pulling the leaver back and it enable full beam / High Beam, is there a way of keeping it on or do you have to hold the stick back to keep them on high beam? Just I am travelling down to my familys down south today and it takes a good 3hrs 30 mins and the A1 has hardly any lights on so sometimes require full beam for long(ish) periods and dont fancey holding it back for hours just to keep full beam on lol. Thanks.

You should pull it towards you and it should click on and stay on. You can pull it slightly and it'll flash but if you pull a bit further then it will click and stay on.

On my Escorts i have had its always been 3 positions. In the centre is the usual, dipped beam lights, then push away for permanent full beam lights, then pull all the way towards you and HOLD as it will not stay for both dippedand full beam lights to flash.
Thought the fiesta's would be the same.

You would think all fords would be the same but it would appear not...... they're just trying to confuse us.
