    Default First time vectra owner - help needed!

    Hi all,

    My first time posting on here as I recently bought a Vectra, I seem to have joined the club late!

    My problem is similar to a lot of peoples on here - I have the 'brake light' warning come up on my dash, and on the rear passenger side both tail light are coming on when I brake.

    Following advice on here I changed both bulbs over, but unfortunately the error message still comes on, as do both the tail lights on the pax side when I brake. On occasions the bottom of the two tail lights does go off if I disconnect the lights and reconnect - but the dash warning doesn't go away.

    Are there any other quick fixes I can try? I had thought it was possibly a bad earth or damp somewhere - but hoping it is something simpler.

    Sorry just realised - the second (bottom) tail light comes on with the brake light, but then does go off after approx. 15 seconds if I leave the brake on for that long.

    I had thought it was just the bulb - but I've replaced both and still the bottom one keeps coming on with the top one.
