    Vehicle : Mokka

    Trim : SE - Orange Rock 's !!

    Engine : 1.7CDTi

    Year : 2014

    Default No working rear lights or tailgate

    Hi Guys, Vectra C 2003 DTi Hatch.
    My old car, now it's No 1 Daughter + Boyfriends car.
    They decided to go and see his family in Scotland.
    They have now got to scotland and the car started playing up with bulb failures.
    Now they have no rear lights and the tailgate wont open.
    I suspect the REC, but I cannot find any reference to fuses that feed power to the REC in either the Engine Fusebox and/or the Passenger Fusebox in the Haynes manual.
    Their Haynes manual is in their house. Typical.
    I have told them where the 3 fuseboxes are, and advised that disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes MIGHT help, but it's only a small hope.
    Any clues that i can pass on to them?
    Thanks

    They have this morning checked fuses and not found any problems.
    In fact the alarm went off during the fuse checks. That made them jump.
    It does look like the REC is knackered.
    The area below the REC has some water in it, but the REC does not appear damp.
    They are near Glasgow at the moment, and they have contacted a local vauxhall garage, but they have no electrical people available till Monday.
    It looks like they will have to travel back to Oxfordshire without rear lights, which is really not good.

    So the big question is, is there any local help available?

    Yes the REC was indeed faulty and was replaced, and AFAIK the car still lives. Surprising, considering how much neglect it gets from my daughter.
