    My passenger side break light only works when it wants to. The amber warning light comes on also. It spends most of the time not working and just decides to work for a bit then off again.

    Any ideas guys?

    Oh BTW, a beep has just started sounding when the light decides not to work. The beep never used to sound. Why would it start out of the blue?

    Thanks, done all of the above. I haven't yet checked for voltage at the plug but I will.

    Is it the low pad light coming on? Orange?

    I'd check switch connections too.
