    Headlight failure.

    Hi , the headlights on my mk5 Astra intermittently cut out when driving in wet weather but not in the dry. Nor is a bumpy road to blame. Local Vauxhall dealer can't find a fault so has anybody got any ideas before my warranty runs out, or I drive into a ditch in the dark! Thanks Jayb.

    Only thing I can think is that the wiring is shorting out when wet cauing the ecu to shut down power to the lights. This could be very hard to find though

    I'd get onto vauxhall and get this fault recongised as a ongoing one so should still be covered when the warrenty runs out
