Megane faulty Indicator Lights

I have a 1996 renault Megane Hatchback, the rear indicators work ok until I touch the brake, then the right rear indicator does not flash but my brake lights flash on and off instead (this is with the headlights off) and as soon as I touch the brakes the foglight symbol on the dash lights up.
My mileometer reading does not light up at any time.
Any help or advice would be appreciated I have changed bulbs and checked all the fuses.
many thanks

Its quite a common problem (I've seen this on FIAT's & Ford's also). Usually the culprit is a bad earth or some wires making contact (that shouldn't). I would recommend that you look at the wiring in the offending light unit and test the various circuits (if the source of the problem isn't immediately apparent). Check also for signs of water damage, as this could also give rise to the same symptoms.

Hope this helps (sorry its a bit general, but there are quite a few different reasons why this may occur, and didn't want you missing any whilst investigating).


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
