    Hi there,

    I have a R reg Renault Megane which has an electrical fault I need some help identifying the problem.

    Bascially when I press the brake pedal, the fog light on the dash board comes on for a split second then it goes on...Also

    When I press the indicator either one, there are two slow clicks and flashes(normal flashes associated with the indicator) before the indicator timing corrects itself...

    Please can someone tell me what parts and the work that needs to be done so when I go to a mechanic I know I won't get conned...Only because I am clueless with cars

    Thanks in advance..

    Is it a Megane classic with a caravan attachment? I have a '97 megane classic and it had a short because of the caravan attachment, dunno why, dont care.

    I had one of these for a bit, albiet a 98 R reg ;).

    my problem was when pressing the brake light, the actual rear flog light and rear indicators all flashed.

    i fixed it by fiddling around with the wires going into the rear lights as it was shorting out there. the wiring in these things is terrorble!
