VW Crafter rear lights, headlights and indicator failure – common fault

vw crafter lighting problems

Loss of headlights, rear lights and indicators are commonly caused by internal component malfunction of the lighting/comfort control module.

 

Although it is more common to have illumination failure on the left hand side of the vehicle, sudden and complete failure can affect any and all external lights.

Often with the loss of the VW Crafter headlights, indicators and/or rear lights, fault codes will be stored for 903C - Left Turn Signal Indicator Short To Earth and 9033 - Left Brake Light Short To Earth. On occasion the lighting module may struggle to achieve communications to scan tools due to internal failure shutting down the entire unit.

 

It used to be that you would have to purchase a replacement from the dealership, get it fitted and then coded to the vehicle.

Not anymore – we can instead offer a test and rebuild of your original unit within 1-2 working days and without the need for coding once you receive it back from us. All this with an unlimited mile Lifetime Warranty as standard.
