Re: 147 warning (side lights)

check all bulbs, even reg plate bulbs. if all bulbs are definately working then the problem is often excess resistance in a bulb circuit. disconnect each lights' connector a few times to make sure there is a good connection, and give all bulbs a remove and replace.

I tend to get a lot of these lightbulb warnings this time of year (getting cooler and all). As mentioned above, i usually just remove and replace the bulbs a few time which sorts the faults....obviously check it is indeed not a blown bulb

Mine's done that since I bought it a year ago, and probably for a good bit before that. I've just learned to ignore it at this stage! I might try the remove/replace each bulb trick though.
Also, if you are removing the bulbs, it might be worth a quick rub of emory paper to make sure you're getting a good connection on them.
