    nearside rare light not working??

    hi all, not much of a poster on here but iv found a problem,
    the nearside rare light doesnt turn on. it lights up when the brakes are applied but the general rare light doesnt work.
    checked the fuse, replaced the bulb, and the farside light is working fine

    anybody got any ideas? n if so how can i fix it? cause iv bin pulled over twice in the space of 2 days 4 it now!

    by side light do you mean the small one at the front before putting proper headlights. if so then no it doesnt only the 1 on the left hand side works

    Yep thats the one

    Besause the front one dosn't work too it suggests it's the fuse thats at fault so double check it. Looks like it's number 25

    Might be worth trying replacing the fuse for the general sidelights then mate? Not sure which fuse it is but its worth a shot.

    Yep just looked at the fuse layouts again

    Fuse 25 does the left hand front and rear side/parking lights, it will be a red 10 amp fuse
