    Default Bulb Check

    While on the way to work the trip computer displayed a message saying to check the left brake light. I got a guy from work to check it and it was fine!

    Could it be loose or just an error with the computer, as we all know how cr@p computers can be...........

    Mark, when you say terminal connection what does it look like (is that the plug on the back of the light?). I've been running for a week now with the passengers side front parking light lying to me on the display.

    I will try halfrauds at the weekend, by the time I get home they are shut through the week.

    Out of interest does anyone know if they the same as the Vec Bs’ – if so I think I have a selection of bulbs from the old motor in the shed (somewhere).

    Just remember when a bulb blows another one takes over its job so you still have what looks like the full set. If you look closely at the back with the lights on you might notice the lights arnt aligned.

    no, i mean the actual spring/plug/terminal on the back of the bulb, not the lamp cluster body.

    Just went to get car washed and computer told me to check left headlight. Found it was out so i took it out and put it back in and it's working fine now.

    Could the interference from the heater buttons be screwing with the sensors on the trip computer or am i just needing to change all the bulbs???!!!!!!!
