    Question Sidelights problem

    On my 2007 vectra sri I noticed the front sidelights were dim, so replaced them thinking the bulb was on its way out. But the new ones I have put in are also now dim?

    What could be the problem?

    Thanks

    Thats just the way sidelights are with capless 501's, i always use my dipped beam anyway sidelights are pretty pointless.

    IMO, sidelights should be called 'parking lights' and only able to use them when the engine is off. I never have them on by themselves - they are just pointless.

    Headlights or nothing.

    Yeah I mean sidelights (parking lights). I personally don't drive around with them on, if I think the weather conditions warrant the use of sidelights then I just put my headlights on... Looks better in my opinion. It was just something that was bothering me (bit of a perfectionist) and thought I would see if there was an easy fix.
