Dun no when mine flashed the dealer told me to check the bulbs on the rear. find a garage or a big piece of glass window and back up. push the brake and turn on the lights. check the reflection. i think mine was of side brake lamp if memory serves me right.:)

the coil light is the fault recognition light on the t4, the most basic and the first one to check is brake lights, if one bulb is out it will come up if all are out the liklihood is brake light switch, but check bulbs first, has been known for bulbs to blow in tandem

start by checking your brake lights, this is the only light on rear that should bring coil light on, best to get someone to apply brakes whilst you look at rear, do you have high level brake light on the backof urs?

I fitted a set of LED smoked tail lights last night and all seems OK.

Will check though.

Was thinking that it was gonn a be more major so glad to know that it is potentially just lights and that when flashing is an error sign.
