306 electrics

Hi,
On my 94 306 XTdt, the front and rear courtesy lights and map lights only work when the key is in the ignition and turned to A, yet I can put the full beam on without the key. Is this normal operation? It seems odd that you should have to put the key in to be able to put the interior light on, but not for the beam. In fact, it's pretty much the opposite of all other cars I've driven. The interior light does come on automatically and dim correctly when the doors are opened however.
Thanks,
Alex

For the interior lights is quite normal for a 306. Not sure about the main beam, I think that only dipped headlights are only useable without the key in. And the problem with that???

Not really a problem, just a minor irritation. I discovered all this, of course, whilst fumbling around in the dark trying to get the key in the ignition.
