    Question vectra c 04 headlight problem

    hi their,i have owned this car for about 2 month,been fine so far.
    went to pick kids up from football and noticed dipped headlights wernt working.main beams are fine and indicators are fine.when i turn on dipped headlights i get 1 sidelight and 1 indicator!same as with sidelights.iv looked at the fuses they seem fine.checked too many and now have the radio on'safe mode' now thats another matter.also when i tried to start it just now it took longer than usual,i actually thought it wouldnt start.had a quick look at connections and earths but they seem fine........thanks for reading.

    Maybe one dipped beam had already blown but you failed to notice. First thing I would do is get another bulb and try it. If it works, then swap it to the other side to see if that one then works as well.

    As for the sidelight/indicator problem, when a sidelight blows, the indicator takes over the role so you still have side lights. Note, for some reason though this doesn't happen on all Vectras.

    With regard to the starting problem:- what engine? Petrol/diesel?

    Sidelight bulb blown, you've pulled the radio fuse and as Dave says, petrol or diesel.

    Have you bothered to read the owners manual?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
