Ok will do just seems super odd after we changed it and turned it on the lights on dash flashed and clicked. Originally. We were having issues with car starting check bat and alternator they were fine. Suddenly light blew and then it started no problem for a week. Changed to new bulb today now wont start again. Works fine when light isn't working.


If you've been having issues with it starting before, you may want to have the starter tested also
