Customer Question
Hi, the RHS signal lamp...
Hi, the RHS signal lamp on my 2005 VZ holden commodore remains on after locking it with key transponder. Is also intermittent as problem arose yesterday, would turn off occasionally, but otherwise remain on. What is causing it? Or is it something simpler than I could possibly think...?

Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

This is a problem that I have seen a couple of times before - and basically the problem is with whats known as a "multifunction unit " that is located up under the dash of the car...

There is absolutely nothing I'm afraid that you can do about it on a self basis - the car will have to be connected to a dealer diagnostic machine to confirm the fault... then, sometimes, the fault can be cleared via a re set / re program ..software with the aid/ use of the diagnostic machine and they will certainly attempt to do that ...

If that doesn't work - the only answer is renewal of the unit. Again, the dealer needs to do this for you as when its fitted in ( the new unit ) - it has to be programmed to the car using the Tech 2 diagnostic machine...

So, its a trip top the local dealers for you Im afraid - but they will soon sort that for you ...



I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
