Flashing indicators/ Electrical fault

Have a Clio 1.2 expression 2003 reg.
When indicating, lights either flash quickly or recently not at all, especially when turning left. Also happens more under breaking.
As well as this, dashboard lights appear to light up in various places. Friend followed me home last light and said rear of car looked like a disco when I was indicating
Have MOT in a few days so need to fix asap.
Checked bulbs and all appear to be ok.
From reading other posts on the forum, I presume it is one of three things. Either a faulty earth, the relay or indicator stork.
As I know nowt about car electrics could someone help with this and where I start to find these faults. i'e earth/relay positions on the car.

Help very much appreciated.

I would go with an earth personally having experienced it myself albeit in a 1998 Megane.

The first place i would start mate is the rear cluster that it is affecting. You say it is when tou indicate left so that rear cluster is the starting point. Take the plug off the cluster and have a look at the pins. Make sure they are close so they would make a contact, also check the cosket and make sure it isn't corroded in any way.

I am not too sure what the pins are like on your car but on the Megane you can get a tiny screw driver down the back inside the plug and bend them forward a bit to make sure they make contact, however, note, be careful as you can break the pins completly doing this.

This is based on my Megane though and might not be of use to you at all but hope it helps.
