    Attachment 33671



    hi there was wondering if anyone could help me out. This icon has appeared on the dashboard of my vectra i have checked the manual and it says that this symbol means that a bulb has gone but only if this symbol is red mines not red its yellow so am very confused and was wondering if anyone could help.

    thanks

    No, it's only yellow as far as I'm aware. Wouldn't make sense being red or yellow as the bulb is either working or not. Check your bulbs, you'll find one has blown

    One is about to blow then. Keep an eye out. If you have the info centre in the car it should let you know what bulb it is.

    Yes, as the lamps get older (with use) the filament burns away to such an extent that the resitance becomes higher and thus the car thinks that it has failed. The lamp still works, but will burn out completely soon.

    If a brake light fails then another bulb takes over.

    i.e. the upper of the two tail lights is also the brake light, but if this bulb fails then the lower of the two tail lights takes over the role of tail & brake light.

    So first impressions when you look at the back of the car to check the lights shows you've still got two working brake lights, but upon closer inspection you'll see that one of them is lower than the other one.
