    Thanks to everyone that replied. This has now been fixed!

    I would have just left it if I didnt make this thread as it turned out to be the FOG light and our cars only have one reverse light on the passengers side as mentioned above

    I dont know why it didnt work with the standard lights, but I had to cut and join a wire on the FK lights I have to get the rear FOG to work.

    I might mod the lights to have two reverse lights one day, as Im not happy about having only one... assuming I dont get another fault pop up.


    Actually... branching off of this topic, if I connected a second bulb to the current reverse light would it throw up a fault sign on the dash? As it would be giving out power to 2 bulbs and not 1? Or would it just mean the reverse lights wont be as bright?

    Mods, do I need to make a new topic?

    I don't think the reverse lights are monitored as they are not controlled by the Light control module
