    Default indicator problems

    Hi i have a 2003 dti 2.0 vectra would not start on Sunday ( would turn over but not fire ),green flag came out and after checking fuses and fuel pump managed to get it going by disconnecting earth lead on the battery for a few minutes.
    When it started the engine management light ( spanner light ? ) was on turned the car off then back on and it started no problem,went out Monday started no problem but now i have two of the side light bulbs not working ( one either side,one higher then the rest ) and the o/side rear indicator is not working ( no bulb out indication on display ),have checked bulbs and they are fine,had a tech 2 test and reset everything but still not working ( tow bar was fitted prior to getting the car ) ,has anyone got any ideas,Steve.

    The Vectra C has 2 sidelight bulbs on each side and makes the top one glow brighter when brake pedal is pressed. Check both bulbs both sides for acblown bulb or bad connection. The same goes for the indicator bulb.

    It could just be co-incidence or it could be the towbar electrics or something else has caused an issue which caused the car not to start then the bulbs to fail.

    Also check the battery and alternator as low voltage can play havoc with modern computer-controlled electrics.

    What are the towbar electrics - the proper Vauxhall 'plug in and programme' wiring kit or something aftermarket like this?
