    Welcome robert

    My first suggestion would be to unplug the rear light cluster and see if the problem carries on. Otherwise have you had any work done to the car recently?

    Hi mate, yeah I unplugged the back light cluster and it didn't help I have tried to wire a mk2 digi dash in. I spliced all the dash wires then decided to put the original mk3 clock back in joining all the coloured wires to each other. Also Ive had the back doors welded together but can't see no damage to loom running down the carpet. Hope you understand where i'm coming from! Cheers

    I understand what you mean. Where you have done work double check the grey/red, grey/black, black/white and black/green wires. Maybe unplug the main connector where the wiring goes to the back in the passenger kickpanel to see if it stops doing it

    Thanks mate, I have checked each of the wires inside the car and can't see any problems where the doors have been welded. I have disconnected all the wires where I joined them behind the speedo clock, this didn't help. I will unplug the main connector and see if this helps. cheers,

    If you still have the problem then you know the problems not with the rear wiring loom. If the problems now gone you know you have to check the rear wiring loom further as thats where your problem is

    Thanks, when i unplugged the main connectors the sidelights and headlights both will not work and neither will the indicators these all at the front is this normal? Or does this indicate the problem is with the loom to the speedo clock?

    I thought the connectors in the passenger kickpanel just went to the rear of the car, maybe I was wrong then.

    Yes the problem could be with the loom to the speedo, could be pretty much anywhere TBH

    Hi there i've managed to fix the fault, the problem was in the passenger kick panel a couple of wires had joined together behind the main connectors.
