Would be very grateful if someone could shed some light on my situation ... I have a 2013 1.4 petrol B-max and when I'm driving and turn on the headlights the car seems to loose power for a few seconds then returns to normal is this a safety feature or do I have an issue ?? Thanks in advance

Soundds like an issue as in 40 years of driving, ive never had this occur. Someone needs to test the electrics to see what is causing this.

My b max has auto lights and i never notice that they have come on until i glance at the dashboard.Edited by: cianpars
