    check what tail/stop lights u have fitted

    might have the wrong spec ones - either single filament or wrong offset pins


    cant recall if this is the reason but have u fitted any bulbs lately?

    Have you changed any of the rear ones or touched them?

    Its common to fit the wrong bulb (Especially if you got it from Halfords) and it back feeds through the wrong bulb and puts the front lights on and other strange stuff.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
