    Default Light Warning Indicator.

    My light warning indicator is on constanly even though I've checked all the bulbs and they work fine. Has anyone had this as well?

    Just a thought from what I've read on the forum, you say your lights are working, but it could be that one of the rear lamps have failed and the another has taken over, really check the lights carefully to ensure the lamps that should be on, are lit correctly. HTH

    Easiest thing to do would be take out the rear bulb cluster's and check for a blown bulb, like the guys have said its usually the rear brake bulb which goes, and the running light compensates for this. so can be confusing when trying to see which bulb has blown without removing them.

    The rear brake bulb actually shares its duties with one of the 2 tail lights. If the upper bulb goes, then the lower one takes over as the tail / brake light.

    Bulbs from top to bottom:
    Turn signal light
    Tail light / brake light
    Tail light
    Fog tail light (works on drivers side only - this is normal for the UK)
    Reversing light

    All bulbs are 21 watt.

    Thanks all for the advice. I'll check tonight. Although I did notice that the indicator was working intermittently for a few weeks beforehand.

    Hopefully its somethink simple.
