    hi all,
    ive just noticed this morning that my rear tail light was not operating at all (brake and tail light)

    also my front sidelight has went out and also interior lights (main) not map reading.
    ive checked the fuses but i dont see any fused ones?

    can anyone shed any light on this as i need to use my car to work everynight and i dont wanna risk a fine etc

    thanks again

    Sounds like fuses. Check again, but first check the bootlid wiring. The bundle of wires inside the black sheath rub on each other until they expose and short. A lot weird things happen at tat tag. Some of my lights stopped working when this happened.
    Just pull back the cover between the bootlid and the car and check all the cables. Repair as necessary and then check your fuses again.

    P.S. Disconnect your battery before doing this, otherwise you moving the wires around can cause more shorts and problems!
