    I have done a diagnostic and found some faults, However I can't seem to clear some of them.

    The main one being the light module shadow memory that contains 7 errors all relating to bulbs not working.

    Inpa says memory erased but faults keep showing.

    Anyone any ideas?

    The shadow memory is read separately from the fault memory. I've seen some pretty crazy values in there so have just left it alone as it does no harm.

    The main thing is that the fault codes are clear. I have read reports of others being unable to clear the shadow memory.
