The left rear nearside brake light is sticking on but only when the car lights are used. It works fine when no lights are on. Any suggestions as to what may be problem please

A dirty or loose connection in the connector block to the rear light cluster is likely. Check it is clean and sound and making good contact.:)

It may be worth checking each bulb in the light cluster are getting suffiicient earth.

You'll need a multi-meter to check though.:)

If the bulbs are 21w/5w combination, is there any risk they have been put in incorrectly - if they have been put in in correctly, a dim 5w light would be emitted when the brakes are applied but a 21w light would be emitted by the sidelights, consequently the 5w would not be noticeable if the 21w element is already lit.
Just a thought as I have seen it done on many occassions despite the offset pegs on the bulbs sleeves.
