    Default bulb out light

    Is the indicators connect to the fault light on the dash to say you have a bulb out, reason I ask I've just had one go and the bulb out light hasn't come on

    not sure, but don't think so (haven't had one go on my vec yet), most car indicators flash faster if an indicator bulb is gone, which would kind of make turning the warning light on unnecessary

    Warns me on mine. When I had the headlights out to fit my HIDs, I put one headlight back in and the bulb check system told me that umpteen bulbs were out. i.e. front fogs - left and right (because I also had the bumper off), front side light, dipped beam, high beam, and indicator.

    Both the light in the speedo housing came on, as well as the stereo display giving graphic representation of each and every bulb.

    Same thing when I changed a rear side/brake light bulb. Tried with the multiplug disconnected from the bulb holder assembly. Told me each and every bulb wasn't working in the light cluster.

    Most likely the bulb is on its way out.

    Vectra-C and LEDs are a bad combination where exterior lights are concerned.
