    Default bulb warning light on....but no bulbs appear blown

    right my vectra keeps flashing the bulb exclamation warning light up, i've assumed its as obvious as it looks and means a bulb has blown, however i cant find a blown bulb, have checked over about 5 or 6 times. any suggestions what else it could signify? or are there any other magic tricks the vectra has, i.e. warning me its about to go. using fog lights rather than brake lights if a brake light is blown?

    I seem to remember the vectra does utilise what bulbs are left when one goes...

    i think it does use a fog light as a brake light or something along those lines. i have seen a few where the rear lights have not illuminated symetrically, like one brake light is on and the other fog light is on and it was explained to me that it was because of a blown bulb.

    if everything looks symetrical then i'm stumped lol sorry

    sure someone more informed than me will be along shortly

    Nearly correct.

    Vectra-C has 2 tails lights either side. The upper one of the two is the tail/brake light. Should the upper tail/brake light fail, then the lower tail light takes over the role of tail/brake light.
