    Hi

    I have recently had a fault with the rear indicators where a message appears on the display telling me that either rear indicator has malfunctioned and the back up light is being used instead. If I turn the engine off and remove the key and wait a few moments, they revert to normal operation, I have removed the N/S light assemblt to check it, as this was the first one to start playing up, thinking it may be a bulb, but they are LED's.

    Do you think it may be a dodgy conection or is this a known fault with a work aroung solution?

    Cheers

    Derek

    When we had problems with the rear lights it turned out to be the SAM unit. Not cheap.
