    should the headlight symbol light up when the lights are on, the off poistion and side lights anf fog lights are light up but the headlight one doesnt

    is there a cheap fix if its faulty or is it a whole switch

    Yes it should , theres one led does 2 symbols ie 0 and side light and another led lights up the dip one for illumination so an led must have let you down
    you could change it if your into circuit boards otherwise if your that bothered it will be a new switch
    or leave it as it is .

    guess your right about that. As i have check it, the switch is not turning the light on the fog. So i guess i need a replacement for this one.
