    Default intermittent light fault..

    over the last week Ive been getting a left brake light error. It'll come on every time I start the car for a day then go off for a day then come back and the cycle starts again. The annoying thing is, every time I get the error I check but both brake lights are fine? Ive got to full up tonight so I'll pick up some new bulbs anyway but I wondered if there's something more sinister happening to cause it?

    I think as a bulb nears its end of life it provides more resistantance to a circuit, I guess the Vec cleverly monitors this and so can warn of an impending bulb failure..

    As above,

    I had this on mine and soon after a rear bulb blew and I changed it.

    Nowdadays i get roughly 3 bulb errors a week but they always go away after a minute of so.

    I just ignore them now.

    obviously if it comes on and stays on then I will have a blown bulb.
