    Hello everyone,

    I have noticed a couple of nights ago that the rear driver side tail light is now not working, the boot lid tail light is fine though.

    The indicators works, as do the brake lights etc although there is nothing on the dash stating the tail light malfunction !!??!!

    I have done the following:

    1) Changed the bulbs first - there fine

    2) Had my friend who is a Mechanic to look at it and found that there is NO voltage going to pin3 which is the tail light, !?!?


    This has now left me a bit confused as to exactly what it could be.

    Has anyone cam across this before or know of a fix, if so could you please let me know.

    Thanks in advance

    Footwell module problem. Get your mechanic friend to read the codes on the car and see if there is an issue with the FRM.

    Thanks for replying,

    I will note that down and let him know. Can you explain to me what you are talking about in a bit more detail as to what it is and what it does as Im not very fluent in this area i.e. Footweel module and FRM.


    Thanks

    ******Update*********

    Just went out to the car there too see if by the off chance it had fixed itself and for a moment i thought it did, it was on then flickered a bit then slowly sort of died out.

    My question is now what does this mean???

    i.e. could it be a loose connection somewhere??

    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks

    The FRM controls all the lighting of the car as well as other functions when working with other modules like the CAS and roof module.

    O ryt ok, say if this is the problem would it cause the light to be intermittent like it was earlier?

    Also how much would one of these cost to replace?
