Agreed - there are two types of bulb which are *nearly* the same but not quite. One has pins at 180 deg to each other, the other at 270 deg. Both will fit in the holder but only the correct version will work.

Hi, Yes ..my pins are 180 deg with a single filament bulb, I will try replacing the small bulbs as the didn't seem to glow as brightly as the others..Possibly on their way out??.

Thanks,

Barry

Hi, am new to forum but have the same problem. I changed both bulbs, all other bulb/lights are working but only rear illuminator comes on when I brake. Tried to check the fuse board but struggled to identify which fuse operated the brake lights.

I will check bulbs again but do you know if all brake lights operate on same wiring system as cannot understand why illuminator lights but not main brake lights.

Any help greatly appreciated

Interestingly I had this fault for a while and I realised it was the break light in the lid of the boot (the thin strip light). Once that was replaced (bit of a tricky procedure) it stopped that fault light appearing. Might help you as it puzzled me for a while.

Are you sure you have checked the correct bulbs. The inner ones on the tailgate are rear fog lights. The brake/tail lights which are 21/5w double filament bulbs are on the outer clusters along with indicator bulbs.

Just realised this myself after having the same problem
