What a saga! At least it's fixed. 

The equivalent Pugs have a separate brake light fail detection unit under the dash, I think it senses when the "load" of lighting is outside of range and triggers the dash warning lamp.  It illuminates on startup, you push the brakes once and if all is OK the warning goes out.

Hi Citroenbender
yes it was a saga sorry, I think may have put LED globes in that may be why it not reading no load.
I guess I will have to put the incandescent globes back then.

thank mate
