Help on Open car Lights not working

Hi All,

when i open my car the lights should come on (Back, front, interior and under door handles) this has stopped for some reason?

the door handles still come on and interior light but not front and rear lights,

i have had an issue with battery recently but this has been sorted and it worked for a few days. is this something i can turn off and on?

checked the manual no help?

Thanks
Theo

It's linked with the voltage of the battery. If the voltage or charge of the battery drops, then they won't come on. Once the battery charge is back up, they should come on again as before....
