rear light cluster

Post by turbonetuk » Sun Feb 02, 2020 12:47 pm

Hello all

have a problem with my passenger side rear light cluster on my Astra 1.4 t

the rear light bulb is very dim and sometimes flashes slightly

took bulb out and put in the drivers side, and it works fine !

swapped the light cluster over and the problem is not there at all

works perfect


( but obviously cant leave it like it as they are different sides )



would anybody know what the problem would be

as there cant be anything wrong

if you understand :? :? :?

There are a few threads on here about the rear cluster lights dimming etc.
I think some of them have been bad grounds and others the plug connections themselves, iirc.

yes i read that .but the problem we have is that

we thought bad connection

but when we swapped the light cluster over from drivers side to passenger side
and passenger to drivers

everything worked perfect

so no bad connection

or that would not work

Re rear lights I’ve just had the same problem on my 2016 reg 1.0ltr took it to my local dealer who admitted he was aware of this happening to some Astra’s and it is a bad earth connection even though it’s a year out of warranty it was fixed gratis, I had earlier contacted Vauxhall customer service who replied with a message saying if it was a fault the would sort it out with the dealer as a goodwill gesture, all that it takes is the earth contact crimping up. If you do this show Vauxhall’s message to your dealer even though it’s not a recall fault.

They've issued a special coverage bulletin for this fault,5 years or 100,000 miles but crucially it's NOT a recall but only upon customer complaint.

That is good news. Thanks for keeping us updated Valer.

Does the bulletin state wen the improvement at production was made?
