    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Default Trailer tell tail light?

    Is the tell tail warning light omitted from the Vec C and Signum facelift?

    Do they get round that by having bulb failure warning instead?

    There should be one additional trailer lamp only in the display cluster
    See handbook

    The Driver Info Display only covers the bulbs within the car

    Bulb failure warning covers trailer bulbs too, this is the second vec i've fitted the genuine electrics to and the previous one had bulb failure and the tell tail light. This one doesn't have the tell tail light though

    That is also what the handbook on mine states
    Nothing about a failed bulb in the trailer being reported in the Driver Info Centre (however, as above, I've never installed so not able to confirm)

    My Vectra C 56 plate is fitted with Vx electrics but no indication on the dash at all just the audible warning from the REC. Not sure about bulb failure, never tried it

    You either make half of your posts up or take a bit of the truth and twist it IMHO.

    If it helps I remember reading that when installed and set up the car will check the lamps on the trailer. That would have been pre facelift though.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
