Re: 500X Fault

If the whole rear light cluster is not working, the dealer should have provided you with a loan car, due to the dangerous condition of your car to you and other road users.
Let alone putting you at risk of a fine and points on your licence.

Re: 500X Fault

If mileage is flashing then this means/indicates that the body computer has lost CAN PROXI communication with the NODE that controls the lights.

This would suggest to me a wiring/connector issue.

If I were the dealer I would have:

1) done a PROXI check to see what units were registered on the body computer
2) do the same on a similar loan/staff car and check for differences.

All models of the 500X will have one or more nodes/units responsible for lighting

I'm not suggesting such a PROXI check would be of value but it has to be done as a first port of call and thus be an educational "module" in dealer/technician education.
