Cool Scenic II - Electronics - Dashboard lights

There are two Scenic II in our family (2000 and 2003 models) both has the same problem: when the front light is off and you push the break pedal, the dashboard lighting goes on. (since the DB lighting is on anyway when the the front light is on, I can not see the problem )
Any idea where to start? I assume this is a grounding probleme, but where?

Hi zsangyal, that would be my guess as well. I'd check all the obvious one the main ground straps etc then start looking at the light clusters and the brake light switch for earth issues.
Esp if there has been any work done in these areas (accident damage or even just a bulb change), as it could be a trapped wire that chaffed through and now causing the problem ... this is common where the clusters are held in with one or two screws from inside the car, its easy to get this bolt/screw damaging the loom.

Good luck and hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
