Exclamation Please tell me its just a bad earth!

Been getting a couple of problems with the electrics on the dash... here is what probs i got

- fan blower only works in speed 6 though it will work on any speed very briefly when key is turned once before stopping.

- clock/tempature display not working or at times comes on but very very faint (when it does work it is reset so it must be losing power/connection somewhere)

- when I apply brake my rear fog dash light glows, does not illuminate completley.. just a gentle glow.

It all seemed to come along at once, the fan blower was the 1st problem then it was about 2wks before the clock error and the glowing light.

Sounds like bad earth to me, any ideas? If im right where can I access the earth point on the car body?

Also changed front brake pads a few weeks ago, now im getting alot of squeeking from the front wheel/wheels, any ideas?

Currently in craigc38's garage:
Renault Megane 1997 1.9DTI
