aaaaaaaaarrrrrhhh! Simon YES! I found that when I would take out the normal 5W rear light bulb it would automatically illuminate the brake light bulb dimly (so that explains that one).
I have spent all morning on this now and I cant find what the fault is.
The symptoms are.......
1. Bulb fault icon is on (even though all bulbs are working).
2. Sometimes the bulb fault icon goes out when I apply the brake pedal.
3. Turn headlights on showing rear lights, sometimes the left brake light also lights up dim (this then shows the bulb fault icon on dash).
4. Turn headlights on showing rear lights, sometimes the left light is out and the left brake light is on instead (dim). This then shows the bulb fault icon on dash.
5. These symptoms happen to the left and right side, but not at the same time.
So I do have a variant combination of the light set up, I can sometimes have one or two rear lights on with one brake light on even though I am not braking.
Now! if I think back I can remember months ago that the bulb fault light icon did come on a few times and I noticed when I applied the brake pedal the light would go out, so I though nothing of it. But it seems that the problem has got worst and somehow must be connected to the brake system (I don't know).
It must be an electrical problem and allowing for the bulb fault light to trigger and allow for a brake light to illuminate dimly when headlights are turn on.
Who is the electrical wizz-kid around here then (Simon)
help will be really appreciated. I dont want to get rid of the Rover just becasue of a light fault, and if I take it into a garage they will charge me silly money to rectify.
OH! Nothing has been replaced or worked on recently that might cause the problem, she has been untouched since her last MOT.
Its not ECU (Engine Control Unit)
related is it? or some relay? Can it be as simply as a faulty bulb.
