sounds like a faulty coil pack as when the lights are on the extra drain on the voltage will sup the faulty pack.

hi mate if it was a faulty coil pack would it not be like that all the time through every gear and do it on initial start up.......as it also hesitates has a miny fit thru 1st and 2nd gear ie missfire when the lights are off in the day time
