    Default Blown Rear fog light bulb

    I've got a 53 plate pre-facelift veccy, and the passenger side rear fog light bulb does not work. I've changed the bulb with two new ones and no luck?! Now if one of the front bulbs or front fog lights go out then a warning message pops up to tell me that light is out, yet it hasn't done this for this rear fog light bulb, any reason behind it?

    Ohhh and obviously any ideas as to why the new bulbs aren't working either? Are each bulbs individually fused or something if so where can i find them?

    Cheers, Ben.

    Apparently its some daft EU thing. Its safer to tailgate someone in the fog if they only have 1 foglight. That way you will still see them braking and not mistake the foglights for brake lights.

    You can use it as a spare bulb as it's the same as all the others (except the indicator if yours has one fitted with an orange glass and clear lens in the light cluster)

    I take it you don't have, or haven't read the handbook?

    No what i was saying was, there was a bulb in the place for the rear fog light on the passenger side, thus suggesting to me that it should be working. . . If there was no bulb in it's place then maybe i'ld have had a second think over it.

    You assumed correctly.

    Still wanna get the passenger side wired in, there's a central brake light, so when braking with the fog lights on it should be pretty obvious
