The damn orange bulb light on the centre console...

The little orange light on my centre console that indicates as you will probably know, a blown bulb, has recently been been flashing eveytime i indicate left or brake. There is nothing wrong with the bulbs but does everyone else find it as incredibly annoying as i do?

It takes catches my attention eveyry time, just wana it grrr.

Re: The damn orange bulb light on the centre console...

I have the problem of the light coming sometimes when I am braking, does get a little annoying. Seems to be a common problem.

I seem to remember that some people have mentioned trying to top-up (if required) the brake fluid, although I haven't tried that yet as I intend to get the fluid changed at the next service.

Yeah they are fine but check this lol. I went out in the car in the rain and just like magic, like i had hoped its just stoped flashing at me. The water fixed my electrical problem i guess. I gotta give it though, has been the most annoying 3 days ever. I just hope it doesnt make a return.

On a slightly different note when I first bought my car the light was always on even though no bulbs were out. Took it to a Fiat dealer who spent an hour and then said they couldn't reproduce the problem (to emphasise at this point the lights were always on). Picked the car up 75 lighter and switched the lights on and the bulb out warning light came on when back in and complained and found out they had tried to diagnose the problem by NOT switching the lights on. Eventually turned out to be incorrect wattage bulbs, so just it now comes on occasionally although as you say very annoying.

Re: The damn orange bulb light on the centre console...

yellow light means you have a light out, simple, if you have swapped any lights for led lights (like side light leds) these have the wrong resistance and throw the light - the fix is to put proper ones in.

Red light means your pads are low or fluid is low, just because you still can stop does not mean the pads are low, check them properly.
