    Default Front Lights issues on 03 vectra 2.2 elegance

    HI ALL NEED HELP ASAP,

    Had an issue with display on vectra c, which I left battery off for.a day then took off air vents and the clip was.loose.

    I then connected the battery and now I have a problem with various lights failing, the bulbs are fine but the message on the display says

    N/s turn indicator, n/s high beam, o/s fog light and o/s dipped beam.

    I checked all fuses twice in side of door,boot and bonnet, can't figure it out and don't wanna go to the stealers. Any help appreciated.

    Car has been problem free for 59,300k miles and is 53 reg relevance. Need to resolve asap.as I don't wanna get stopped at night by the bobbies.

    Try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery again.

    You might have accidentally put a spike across the electrics last time you connected it back up.

    Voltage spike - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Or in laymans terms you didn't make a clean connection when hooking the battery back up and upset the electronics of the car.

    Maybe give this a try mate as the original poster had a similar issue to yours

    As per Mucklestones post HERE

    Sometimes if the bulb blows the module fails to turn it back on when it is replaced. With the ignition on but the lights switched off short the contacts for the bulb that will not light. Then replace the bulb and switch on the lights and Bingo! it works......

    Mine did the same thing before MOT last year and a friend showed me this trick.... Works like a charm...
    Might help????

    Good luck

    Alternator,
    Drilled/Grooved Discs & Pads, Eibach Springs, EGR Valve, 50W HID's 6000k, K&N Panel Filter, LED footwell & boot lights
