"Check Daytime Running Lights"
« on: April 12, 2015, 12:32:33 pm »
Hi all

"Check Daytime Running Lights" came up on the display when I fired her up this morning.

The yellow warning triangle has come up too.

I assumed a bulb was out, so stepped out of the car to see which one it was but both weren't working.

Surely they're both not blown? They were already upgraded when I bought the car three years ago.

    Sometimes you find when 1 bulb goes another one goes at the same time or very shortly after.

    Unfortunate but it does happen.

    Thanks Benn. On closer inspection only one bulb is out. Are they a pig to get to and change do you know?

    Hi the DRL,s are easy to change if you have small hands, put full lock on remove the cover the bulb holder twists out, however if you have wider 17" wheels on you mite have to jack the front up so the wheel drops away to give you room, have a supply of finger plasters ready ;D

    It could be the sidelight filament that has died in yours KK. Switch headlights on, then look at them again.
