    Hi i have an A4 tdi 170 2007 with after market hids fitted when I purchased the car and when I turn on the side lights before starting I get check right parking bulb on my dis once the car is started it goes away.
    Also I had to replace my rear wiper motor and while changing I noticed that a bulb holder had been wired in series to my number plate lights.
    I restored the original connection the I got the check number plate light on the dis I rewired the bulb holder back in and it went is this the case of after market lights fitted if so how can I fix this issue many thanks

    You need to trace wiring through & understand why the rear lights were messed with in the beginning.

    You should watch aftermarket hid's as this is on the mot now, so depending on tester, it may fail.

    Hi just passed the mot last week thanks for the heads up I traced the wire no break in wires the number plate lights the additional bulb holder was cut in right next to the original wires connecting the wires to number plate bulb holder I disconnected that additional bulb holder and reconnected the original wires using connecting sleeves but still the light came but when I reconnected the additional bulb holder back the light disappears weird

    are the number plate leds ?
    im thinking there chepo leds and they wired a spare bulb in so it dont trigger the bulb out warning

    quick and efective way to do it but resistor ir the best way.

    Upon closer inspection they look like LEDs so hat probably is correct
