    Default Automatic headlamp range adjustment fault!

    Hello

    My 2003 Vectra has got the above warning light permanently on the display which suggests there is a fault. Any ideas??

    Many thanks, David.

    Take it you have xenons.

    May be the sensor on the suspension I should get a tech2 on it to see the fault codes. Last thing you want to be doing is dazzling other drivers.

    Yes it has Xenons but not on full beam. They doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the way they work. Will have tto get them checked out.

    Cheers mate.

    No, the lights themselves will work as normal. However, there is a sensor on the rear suspension that automatically adjusts the beam level. It may be that or one of the adjuster motors is not working.

    Some people have had issues with water ingress into the headlights that can corrode the electrics in there and cause problems

    Thanks for the info, will have to have it looked at. Hope it doesn't cost too much money! Usually do my own repairs etc but with things like this, I haven't got a clue.

    Regards, David.

    Hello,

    I have the same problem with that sensor. I've been already to a service and they found some problems to my lights system, solved it and also they reset the fault codes. But now it happens again and they said to me it's the sensor.
    What it's the sensor name or id and what will be the right price for it ?
    Can I change it myself or should I take the car to a pro (service) ?

    Thanks.
