    Default need help with bulb replacement light

    i have a 06 vectra and the bulb replacement light keeps coming on for about 30 seconds then goes off sometimes this happens 2 or 3 times during a drive.

    i checked all the bulbs even the ones in the glovebox and the boot and they are all fine.

    i know the car aint gonna stop working but its just really annoying.

    it's more than likely corrosion on one of the terminals upsetting the bulb check system....WHICH terminal is the big question..only by systematic work would you find it.

    I would start with the front indicator bulbs (but they are the most difficult ones to reach )

    That's exactly what I have, on the drivers side, hit it a thump and it comes back on. I guess that there might be some corrosion on the bulb or socket, but I just haven't got round to looking at it.

    If you know someone with a canbus code reader you can find out which bulb exactly is putting on the Check Bulb indicator.
