    Default Blown Bulb Warning...

    Ive had the blown bulb warning light on my dash for some time now and can't seem to figure out which bulb is dead

    Is there any way that i can find out which one it is without driving myself mad and checking all the time?

    It could be one of the brake lights as the car will use one of the other red rear lights as a sub until you replace it. The stop red light and the driving red light are next to each other can be hard to spot at first need someone to push all the lights and brack pedal and you stand at the back.

    when you start the engine and the system check is done it should say on the main display which bulb is gone, does this not show up ??

    The check control which tells you which individual light has failed (among other things) is only fitted on higher spec cars as standard. On lower spec all you get is just the one general warning bulb and it's up to you to look around the car to figure out which one has failed.
