    Vehicle : Insignia 1.8 SRi

    Trim : VX Line Red

    Engine : 1.8VVT

    Year : 2011

    Can only suggest it might be worth removing the third brake light from the tailgate and checking that the connector is both clean and secure. Lot of condensation and moisture in cars at the moment, so not impossible it's got damp and the connection could be a wee bit iffy.

    It is possible to remove them without having to take the trim off the inside of the tailgate or anything. A case of using something like a couple of old credit cards to very very carefully prise it out of the tailgate. However, I changed mine on my previous Vectra, and have to say that despite my best efforts, I ended up with a pile of broken plastic bits. Not a big deal, as I was changing it from red to clear anyway. Hard to explain, but on some early Vecs there wasn't even an access hole on the inside of the boot to get to the light, even with the trim removed. Later ones have an access hole in the metalwork to let you actually get to the light.

    Have a read at this too:
