The orange light. It's on whenever the headlights are one or whenever your turn signals are blinking. If the car's computer senses a voltage discrepancy in these bulbs it will show the same red light on the dashboard as the headlights.

1. Take out the bulbs in the orange lights.
2. Clean the contacts on the bulb.
3. Bend the contacts in the socket so they push harder against the bulb.
