Hi, passenger side had went out and driver lens had water. So I replaced both lens covers and bulb. Now both sides are not working now. Any ideas.

Also wire is there a way of testing with multi meter. Meaning is there a live and neutral.

House electrics I am fine with car ones do my head in.

Thanks

Shaun

Side lights?  They're fused separately but are sided, so if the fuse is gone you'll lose FL and RL. If you still have rears, it's not the fuse.  Check the connection for power.

Best way to lose weight is not drinking mayonnaise/cheese/beer everyday.

What bulbs did you replace with?

Yes you can probe the pins in the socket for power and ground, doesn't matter which way your leads are, it'll just show negative if they're backwards.

Cheers bud.

I got these. Had a look and these are the ones that was recommended (bulb type not brand I just prefer that brand) 5d7d7548aae5875c33078c66bae257c5.jpg
