    Lightbulb Bulb Warning Light

    Guys,

    This morning on the motorway the bulb failure warning light illuminated.

    I had no lights or indicators on at the time.

    It went off after about 5 seconds. I have checked my external lights/indicators and they are all working.

    I remember from the Secrets thread that when a tail light blows, the car automatically uses another bulb in the cluster.

    Is this what happend this morning or was it just a gremlin?

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    B.V

    It may have detected a weakened connection or bulb and flashed up the warning ..........you might find in a week or so a bulb will blow ..not always easy to detect on the rear ,as you say another bulb takes over from the blown one

    thanks, I read similar on google and have just returned from Halfrauds with a new bulb kit and £15 sheets lighter in the wallet.

    Thinking back, I had just hit some traffic and probably touched the brakes just before the light came on. My guess as you say, will be a blown rear bulb in a week or so
