    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI, now half leather & upgrades

    Engine : 1.8 16v ZXE18

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 109,000!

    Default has anyone else come acros this problem and have an answer

    first off not been messing with the passenger side headlight in any way shape or form

    every time i get in the car and turn the the key to start up, the middle screen says `parking light`, and the dash has the bulb sign up, when i first had this its was the passenger side light that has not been working, so as i travel to work with the headlights on, my not working side light bulb is working again, the bulb on the dashboard has gone too, it works perfectly fine if i switch my headlights off and just have side lights on,

    oddly its not working when i start the car up to travel somewhere and by the time i arrive its working again, and its been like this for over a week,
    so i ask any of you, if you can answer this, is it a new bulb thats needed or is it a fuse on its way, which i don`t think its a fuse if i`m honest

    the thing is tho, the bulb itself hasn`t gone tho, one minute its not working and the next it is, and i have normal bulbs as side lights, not smds, as said before i have been messing with the headlight since i bought the car over 6 months ago, had no reason to

    Just swop the bulb as the filaments fail bit rejoin over bumps till they cool and separate again. For 2 mins and 50p bulb it's a first port of call

    Mine used to do exactly the same, just changed bulb. Job done. Similar think used to happen with rear lights, one of four used to go out and spare fog light came on just a bad connection, rubbed contacts on a nearby brick and voila no more issues.
