    I thought it meant that either a bulb has blown or there is a fault on the lighting circuit... Or a brake problem/warning, low pads???

    On my screen it told me which bulb was out, so I just followed that. I did find tho if I turned the lights on when the bulb icon appeared it would disappear and not come on untill I turned the lights off.

    mine came up saying check left brake light, and it had gone but what the car does is uses the side light bulb as a brake light till u replace the blown bulb, if its a brake light thats gone if u chech the lights you will probly notice one side the brake light is the top one and the side thats gone will be lower down on the lamp as its using a different bulb until u replace it..

    same on mine when i checked today the drivers side brake bulb had gone and was using the tail light as a brake when pressed. trusted my mrs yesterday that it wasnt blown, i spotted the height difference straight away when i got her to press the pedals....women!!
