    Default warning lights

    Problem is that my vectra c is showing the 'bulb out' dislay on dash. I have checked everything, and all bulbs are working, but the warning continues to show on dash. Any hints?

    When a bulb fails, another one near to it illuminates in its place. E.g. when a brakelight bulb fails, the tail light bulb will work as the brakelight on that side, so if you don't look carefully enough you'll think both brakelights are still working fine.

    Only applies to the brake lights and in some cases the front indicators take over the role of side lights. The rest of the bulb system doesn't have a helping partner.

    The resistance of the bulb had changed, hence why the bulb check picked it up.
