159 LE Headlights

Morning Guys

Purchased a used 159 LE just over a week ago and am impressed with it so far

I have a small problem with it though and was after a bit of advice, I have searched the forum and found one thread that has similar symptoms but it is slightly different

Anyway what it is

With my headlights set to the OFF position, when it starts getting dark the headlights automatically come ON. When I try and switch them off whilst it is dark it wont let me. However when I try to switch them ON and OFF in daylight the switch works fine? I have looked through the manual and cant find anything that could be doing this, especially as the stalk is not set to AUTO. I hope this isnt me being stupid but can anyone suggest or has anyone come across this before

Many Thanks

Sounds wrong to me. OFF should mean OFF. For lights to come on in failing daylight switch should need to be in AUTO. Can't offer a solution though I'm afraid!
