Yes they raise up at first position, and all running lights on. high beams work. USA car in California.Is the a US car or UK?
Do your headlights flash main beam when you pull the stalk?
Sidelights come on & headlights pods raise at first position of the main lighting switch ok?
Checked the fuses, and relays, tried a few that I know are good. No Luck. The switch seems hard to get out?Ok that could be one of 4 things....
1. the two 10amp fuses - unlikely but not impossible both have blown but simple to check.
2. the relay E4 (top row, second from right) feeds the high/low steering wheel stalk.
3. oh dear!, the slide main sidelights / headlight switch is a well known weak spot! Can be hard to find one.
4. the high/low steering wheel stalk switch.
All carry the current for the dipped beam headlights and Fiat (in common with most auto manufacturers)
love to cost down every component in the name of profit and these switches are just prone to burning out.
The circuit feed for your headlights comes from the Ign switch I think on a black wire and this feeds 12v to
the slide lighting switch, it too has been known to get fed up with life!
If you can download a wiring diagram and trace power through with a voltmeter, it should get you sorted.
At least the X1/9 doesn't suffer from too many CANbusses!! Better hurry, the nights are drawing in.

I removed the face of the switch and it looks ugly, I cleaned it and reinstalled face. Want to remove switch
but Don't know the trick...Not sure about the steering column switch but the high flash head lights work when I pull it.
Do you know where I could find a glove box door?Ok so it looks like the headlight power contact just overheated and expired!
You are running the headlights off the sidelight contact in the lighting switch and it will be now
carrying some 12+amps rather than the 2 or 3amps it was previously. What could go wrong!
At least you have found out what it was and have a temporary fix.
