Question about 2005 Volkswagen Polo
Both low beams(outside lights)not working but high beams(inside small round lights) do switching on with the lever on the left of the steering wheel. When I turn the controller switch 1click to the right the day light(inside small round lights) switch on. When I turn 1 more click to the right the main driving lights do not switch on.
This is likely due to a dimmer control switch. put the lows on and wiggle the switch around and see if the lights flash on, if no then it can still be the switch.

SOURCE: high beam/fog light not working
hi have you had the steering wheel off if you have may well of distrurbed the switch housing and needs readjusting to give you the extra space for the pull switch to lock in to the contacts if not most cars are wired so the the fog lights work with a certain position on the light switching circuit example side lights need to be on main beam needs to be selected so i would fix the problem with your light switch first and see if the fog lights work after it may be seperate problems but might not as i said if you have not had the steering wheel off and you have to hold the switch up to get it to work then the switch is faulty yates210456

on these cars if 1 of the bulbs blow out then you will have to replace them both because they wont work. replace both headlight bulbs and they will be just fine

You may have a bad earth on the lighting system which is causing a resistance.
This normally shows up as lights dimming when you turn more on , in some cases the lights will switch off altogether
Take a fairly strong wire lead from the negative post of the battery (Minus terminal) and put it on the metal part of the lamp housing to see if the lights brighten.
If they do then you need to clean off all of the earth points for the lighting circuit.
If that does not work then you need to hook a meter onto the supply cable for the dipped beam and check what voltage is getting there, less than 11.5v is not good.
If it is lower then you need to go back to yoyr light switch and check it there if it is 12v + then you have a high impedance connection down in the wiring loom.
