Hmmm Xenon and check query

Hello,

A query for you, are the xenon bulbs checked by the canbus system ?

Just I had a xenon bulb go on me yesterday but had no warning via the dash. I'm getting a warning about the number plate lights as it looks as if some of the LED's in one bulb are gone but the others work yet a headlamp bulb goes and no warning. I got a new one fitted today by Halfords but had to move the car after the mechanic had removed the bulb yet still there was no warning.

I had always thought all exterior light bulbs, bar the reverse light, were checked when the key was inserted ?

Anyone got any thoughts ?

no, the main lights aren't checked by the bulb check. And it's bloody obvious when they go out, so no need to either.

Cheers thanks for that I didn't realise that headlamp bulbs were not included in the canbus check....And yes your quite correct it is obvious when a bulbs gone at night.. not so obvious when the autolights switch on at dusk when head lights aren't really needed.

Not if it's quite light out. These early morning I'm using my lights but it is not dark as such just a little dull.

I only notice one out (can be either) when I'm up close to the car in front when at the Traffic lights.
