    Default Parking light check bulb light on and wont go off

    I have just bought some led blue tint parking lights/side lights. The warning on dash and computer goes on. Also when lights are switched off the lights flash on and off. but work fine when on

    As replied in the other thread you started - the CANBUS system in the Vectra C won't accept LED bulbs. Change back to standard 501 bulbs and you'll have no problems.

    Search the forum for MTEC sidelights - they're nice and blue, and are real bulbs so no problems.

    Just a WARNING ON BLUE SIDE LIGHT BULBS!!!! My C failed the MOT when fitted with these as "only emergency vehicle should show blue lights". I had to do a smart change of bulbs in order to pass. The "man" said that the boys in blue would not chase after you, perhaps, but if parked they may require a word with you. Think about it!!!

    Depends how blue you're talking about - the Bluevision and MTEC bulbs are fine, the chavvy LED ones that are bright blue are the ones they won't pass.
