Re: Scenic passed her MOT today but some advice please!

Checking the voltage today, was out for about half an hour then wondered why the bulbs all went dim......didn't have the engine running did I, battery died

battery in for a charge and seeing as all the voltage seemed to be ok whilst the battery was still alive I shall check the light cluster pins to the multi plug next to see if they need a clean!

Regarding earthing on the car; it's only the rear lights which dim (as far as I can tell), also when braking the fog lamp tell tale on the dash illuminates! I am assuming that because the front lights don't dim then it must be around the clusters themselves rather than a main earthing point.....would this assumption be correct?

Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
