    lowers centre consol lights

    Hi folks the cig light and the heater control lights aren't working on my 52 plate zafira. (although the actual lights for the buttons and hazard light works fine) I took centre consol apart today and tested the bulbs there working fine, theres a bit of corosion around the cig lighter which makes me think its not grounding as it should. I cleaned this up as best as i could but still no luck.

    Could it be the wires themselves or has anyone any suggestions as to what it could be? could i just try getting the multimeter to the wires and see if there putting out a voltage?

    cheers folks

    So the bulb does work (You tried it elsewhere)?

    If it does make an earth to the outside of the bulb holder to check thats ok.

    If it still doesn't work check power to the holder.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    yeah the bulb works, tried it on its own.

    tried it in the holder, grounding it to somewhere else but nothing.

    will try checking if there is any power to holder when get a chance, just very strange its the two bulbs below the HU.
