Renault - Megane - Door catches, Speedo and Fog Lamps

HI, I have just bought a renault megane 1.6e RT. had 2 problems, 1. back offside door wont open and 2. erratic speedo.
Have managed to open the door by taking off panel and found that linkage from outside handle to door lock was undone, managed to flick something up inside with my finger tip and door popped open. Then found child lock was on!. So after reading your forum, i can now fix the door problem.
Next job is speedo after reading forum about earth wires. I willlet you know if this solves the problem.
I have 1 more problem and that is rear fog lights not working. Bulbs ok ,, fuse looks ok....!

Welcome to the forum!

Glad to hear at least one issue is sorted!

With the light, If the bulb IS ok, and try re-seating the fuse.

Are you 100% sure there is power getting to the bulb holder? A multimeter will show you!

The switch could be faulty and of course, You could have a broken wire.

Is the light unit corroded anywhere round the power parts?
