    Hi All,

    Im I first time user to this forum and would welcome some help with a light problem.

    I have a 2007, FL2, 2.2 Diesel. The passenger side, rear tail light is not working. I have spoken to a variety of garages about this and none have given me the confidence to to use them as they are more interested in the cost, than the solution.

    I managed to get a mate to check the connections for me and he confirmed that the lighting unit and wiring is fine, but he suggested that a relay/gadget box that tells the lights what to do is faulty as he was getting varying power feed levels, even when the car is off.

    All other lights/fuses are fine. The tail light shares a joint bulb with the stop light and that is fine. We have also cleaned the connections.

    Any thoughts/help greatly welcome.

    Cheers

    Steve

    "The tail light shares a joint bulb with the stop light". Is that a single filament bulb, or the old twin-filament? I don't know the FL2 rear lamp. If it's single filament, the varying voltage may be your friend's meter struggling to correctly measure the chopped voltage in tail mode.
