    Are the lights definitely lighting up evenly on either side? The Vec will use a tail light if one of the brake bulbs has blown

    Just press the ok button (which'll be either the button on the end of the wiper stalk, or the centre button on the stereo/left hand scroll wheel on the steering wheel - depending on age of the car)

    Under normal working conditions the brake lights use the upper tail lights.

    If the upper tail/brake light fails, then the lower tail light takes over the role of tail/brake light instead.
