    Default Rear "Check Light" coming on internitantly

    Hi All,

    My 05 Vectra Estate keeps telling me to check the rear light (get the bulb image on the dash and the warning in the centre console).

    HOWEVER... there is nothing wrong with the bulb and the warning just comes on whenever it feels like it (lights don't even have to be on).

    Any ideas - loose wire/connection?

    Well I've looked at it in the dark when it's on and it looks like it's on albeit feintly... so maybe it is a ****e bulb. I need to get the lining off to have a butchers really, but want to get a new handle for the boot (see my other post) then will do it all in 1 hit so to speak.

    I had the same thing happen with mine, 120ps 55 plate design estate, got the bulb out warning and sure enough,nearside sidelight on tailgate was out. So stripped the tailgate cover off, swapped bulb for a new one, still didnt work. Turns out it was dirt on the bulbholder contatcts, cleaned em up, bent them a little to improve contact to rear lamp, now fine.

    The bulb out warning light on the Vectra is appantly super sensitive..ie it can detect a bulb that has'nt blown ,but is about to.

    Check the brake lights,if one bulb has gone it will substitute another one ,so it looks as if they are working.

    When the bulb out light comes on again, put the car into reverse and see if its your reverse light.
