Renault Megane - 1997- electrical fault - spartan
hi,
Can anybody possibly help please.
about a months ago my girls megane indicators started playing up,working,then stopping intermittently.
Now they work but as soon as you hit the brakes they stop !!
She has admitted to "swopping a few fuses around" but i couldn't get to teh bottom of it and everything else seems to work okay.
despairing so if anybody has any help i'd be very grateful
thank you

Sounds to me like an earthing problem in one of the light fitting connections,when you put the brakes on it is earthing the indicator cable a process of carefull looking at all cable entry points for starters.

I have a 1998 Megane which started exhibiting very similar systems - when indicating right the high-intensity rear light on that side started flashing as well (along with the dashboard warning light), braking stopped the indicators etc. It was going in for a service so got the dealer to look at it. Traced to a faulty circuit board - the one the rear bulbs all plug into. Being a dealer they replaced both sides plus the terminals that plug into them - with labour at around £80 an hour that came to £120 all in. The parts themselves are cheap - less than a tenner inc VAT for the boards as I recall, so I would suggest buying one (or even both sides if the fault occurs on both indicators) and fitting them yourself - dead easy - and seeing if that fixes the problem.
