Default car losing IQ

I get the occassional warnings about my fog lighs having failed, but turning them on then off again cures the error, I guess as the car realizes they are ok.

However, I noticed this morning in a shop window that my headlights weren't working, well, the drivers side one isn't, so I have an actual failure but the car doesn't tell me.

unbelievable.

What year is your car ?? From about 2008 they removed the error for headlight/brake light failure for some reason

an 07, hence why I get the error for the foggies. Just seems dumb I didn't, and still haven't received the warning for the headlight. Sheesh, I've had older cars that warned of a light out.

Nevermind, I'll just go get a fresh, was just moaning for the sake of it, seeing as it can't seem to make up its mind about the fogs.

stop defending her. She's been naughty.

But no, it was fading a couple of weeks ago, so I knew it was inevitable.
