    Default Front fog lamp intermittantly coming up as faulty on the dash, even though ive changed it!

    Hi guys, I've got a slight prob with the drivers side front fog lamp. A few days ago the dash came up with the bulb out reading, so I replaced.
    Now when you start the car, it comes on intermittently and keeps coming on and going off as if it cant make its mind up if its faulty or not!
    Its the push fit connection on the bulbs with the bit of wire hanging from them.

    Bad connection maybe?? Any ideas anyone?

    Dodgy connection. My old vec had the same problem. The plug into the fog light unit was not connecting properly and there was a poor earth.

    I agree - check the connectors behind the bumper. Unplug, scrape off any corrosion, spray with switch cleaner and refit.
