Re: Lamp fault light "on"
This may be caused by an imbalance in the two rear lamps or an imbalance in
the two front sidelights. It may also be caused by the high level brake
light not working. You did not say if this was specifically working. The
brake lights may also be imbalanced. The lamp fault relay itself may be at
fault. There are two IIRC on your car one (reddish cylindrical shape
leftmost relay third relay row behind fuses) and one around the lefthand
rear wheel well possibly behind the
side trim panel.
All the best, Peter.
