Question Espace III turn signal short

When I turn on the right turn signal on our 1999 Espace III, the right brake light blinks along with the turn signal. The center brake light also blinks faintly.

Pressing the brakes also causes the right rear turn signal to illuminate faintly.

Any suggestions on where to look for the short circuit? Where is the fuse box/relay box?

Thanks everyone :-)

Sounds like you've got an earthing problem.

I'd start in the light cluster if the offending item.

Take the lense off and you should see a circut borad in there where the bulbs plug in. Make sure it's spotlessly clean, then give the wiring connectors a clean.

Start there and let us know how you get on.


Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
