    What car is this I didn't think the 8L had a brake light bulb failure warning.

    yeah there's a brake light bulb failure symbol. it's the one with the X'd out bulb in the broken circle

    remember your lights have two levels - red parker and then brake. maybe either one is blown or the bulb has spun loose

    Is that not just a bulb warning light. I thought it was for front or rear bulbs as when I had a headlight out it gave a warning buzz.

    yeah that one doesn't have the broken circle around it for "brake pad worn" warning

    the normal brake pad warning is a broken circle thing.

    so i guess they combined the two to mean brakes & bulb = brake light bulb lol

    please stop saying "broken circle" - I am getting flashbacks from when I googled it about 15 years ago to look for an image to use on a web site to highlight the current day on a calendar widget.

    I remember a teenage "search engine algorithm designer" becoming the youngest blue chip multi-millionaire - I'm not sure who he sold it to, but when questioned "what he has bought", he said well I don't have any money only shares worth millions which I am not allowed to cash in.
