Rear fog lights have a mind of their own

1998 Scenic 1.9 DTI

My problem is the rear fog lights are switching on and off by themselves regardless of whether the ignition is on or off, and regardless of the position of the rear fog light switch on the indicator switch. Sounds like the relays are switching on and off. Tried disconnecting the multi-plug on the back of the switch but no improvement. Have resorted to removing the bulbs so the battery doesn't go flat. The front fog lamp pilot light on the dash is also coming on and off and the car doesn't even have front fog lamps. Help please. Do you think it is a relay or do you think the wire has got a short somewhere?
Many thanks

It sounds like a wiring fault or maybe something in the fuse box. Take a look inside the fuse box and see if you can spot any loose wires, foregin objects or water. If it all looks ok in there and nobody comes up with any more suggestions, then you will probably have to get it looked at by a specialist.
