    Default Check right parking light

    I've had my car vec for about 2 months now and this message has appeared a few times when the lights aren't on. If you turn the lights on to check then the indicator on the same side is stuck on solid and the side light or parking light isn't, give the headlamp a whack and the sidelight comes on and the indicator goes out and the message clears. Do you think this is a wiring fault?
    thanks
    Ian

    I'm surprised it comes up "Check right parking light", on mine it is just "Check parking light"
    I would suggest changing all four front bulbs, indicator and side light, then see what happens
    The side lights warning comes up on mine usually once every 3 months, but a light tap on the relevant headlamp and the bulb comes back on

    No, only when the key out of the ignition and indictor stalk is set to overnight parking mode
    However, even then only the front sidelight and rear warning light come on, never an indicator

    On my pre-facelift, when a sidelight bulb goes, the indicator lights up in place. It does also say which side of the car has the problem.

    It's possibly a bad earth. You could try taking out the bulb and giving the contact a clean and replacing it. I had an intermittent problem, with the bulb working one minute, then not the next. I cleaned the contact and all was good after that.
