    Possibly not but will cause your MOT to fail potentially... that a sensor for the Xenon leveller system..

    Scan the car for faults codes... that will tell you why its on rather than guess...

    Well the last time I had the car scanned when the light first came on it came up with speed signal sensor and was able to wipe it the after driving the light came on with the same code!

    Chances are its the same fault then... clearing the code isn't really a fix especially if its an intermittant fault... when you scan next post up the full code and description as each component has a couple of fault codes it can use...

    I'll try and get my car scanned and i'll post the results on here the car doesn't feel any different but just seeing the light on is a bit annoying!

    Are all of your tyres the same size and all at the correct pressure ? If one is soft compared to the others the car can throw a speed sensor error. I have seen it many times before believe it or not !

    Alright mate its still the same from us fitting the other clocks lol seen the broken link and thought that could be the cause all the tyres are the same pressure and I changed the front nearside one that did have a slow puncture in it after you noticed it was flat lol!
