Futher good news. After my last post my car had a fit of the beeps and warning of a faulty light. I cured this by closing the female conectors closer together in the wiring plug that fits in rear of light fitting. They can be moved on one side with a fine screwdriver or bradall, dont over do it. You then get a better contact on all the bulb pins and more important the earth pin. ( talking rear lights here as they always seem to be the ones with a problem) Regarding dash lights dimming when turning on sides i thought all cars did that these days.

Yes, they dim, It think you can adjust the level of dim in lexia, even go for 'black panel' which may have happened here, or just press the button on the display.

The adjustment of dash display light level adjustment on the 2006 to 2009 Citroen C3, marked 'A'
