Please let me know what will be the best thing to do as I know the bulb is working fine as I swapped them.

If the bulb you installed is not the correct bulb for this model here this can cause the issue with the warning remaining on like this.I would double check you installed the correct bulb that is made for the light you replaced.If this is checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue from here. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete

Hello Pete thanks for a response.
Let me explain the issue as I think we have slight misunderstanding here.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Originally light appeared on my dashboard saying left parking light. Which I checked and it's not working at all. So then I took another bulb from right side which is working and left bulb in right hand side is working okay. So this indicates that there is issue somewhere but not with the bulb itself.
I think next step is to check fuse for that light but I can't find it.My car is Audi A3 3.2 petrol 07 plate.Thanks

O.k.,I do see what you are saying here. I dont see a separate fuse for the left side itself as it appears both left and right are powered the same so the fuse sounds to be o.k.I suspect you have a wiring issues leading from the park light control switch to the light itself or a control ecu at fault as this model should receive its park light signal from the vehicles electronic system control module itself from what I can tell.I would have the light signals tested and the wiring traced for any issues and if a fault is found it will need repaired to correct this issue here. Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here. Thanks Pete

Thanks Pete, just double check those lights are not bulbs but led. Is this change anything? Julian

If this is the LED light assembly that is not working at all the entire LED lamp assembly has to be replaced unfortunately in order for the light to then work.I have seen the LED assemblies fail in the past before unfortunately needing replaced for this issue here. Thanks Pete

Thanks, ***** ***** don't think it will be faulty lamp as I have tested it. Yesterday replaced headlight switch but discovered that current part could be the problem as looks has been already replaced and I am not convinced that the switch is genuine or made for specific model of my car. Can you advise where can I find out correct part number then I can purchase the part?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
The only place I can think of myself on this here for getting the correct part is from a dealer.This is usually the best place and they can look up and order it in by VIN for you on this here.If this was already attempted with no success let me know. Thanks Pete
