  • Problems with Lights behind Heater Controls !!!!!!

    Hiya all.

    I have just noticed that sometimes at night the Light behind the Left Heat temp (Blue to Red) switch doesnt light up properly. When the car starts the left side is pretty much dark and un-lit and it is only when you give the dash a little knock near it that it comes back on,

    Also when fully lit when you twist the control from cold to warm (Blue/Red) the same lights flickers on and off, Is is just a loose wire that can be fixed at VX?? Anyone else had these probs ?????

    Sounds like a loose connection to me, One of my bulbs went in my Dash but the one on the other side. VX replaced it for me when they were fixing my Radiator.

      Just been on phone to VX just this minute to sort the warranty work out, They are going to sort the light behind the dash, check the door locks and well as the other 2 little niggy jobs: squeek from passenger door whilst moving and fuel guage needle only showing just over 3/4 of tank when full.

      Apparently these are a few common problems and once sorted I can start to fully enjoy the Corsa like i already have do so already !!!!!!

                Hiya there

                yeahbibgotvit sorted, turned out to be faulty bulb and replaced under warranty, the technician even marked the gloss black surround when removing so got a new one also under warranty

                  Do they have to remove the radio to do it? as i have an aftermarket headunit and worried they will kick up a fuss because it could be a bit of a ball ache to remove

                    I'm not sure tbh but looking at the dash I would think they would need to remove it or pull it out a bit but not sure, besides the problem is the heater lights not the stereo so they should still do it

                        thats exactly the ones that have busted on mine by the looks of it, must be a common problem to add to the list....
