Hi all,

My Trophy seems to have developed a minor electrical issue I was hoping I may get some advice on.

When I use the indicators or brake pedal the fog light indicator glows dimly and sometimes the rear wiper comes on.

Does anyone have any hints or tips on what might be wrong?

Cheers,

Andy

Check your rear light clusters, there is possibly a short there caused by water ingress.

As hoolio says, There is an earth strap at the back of the rear drivers light cluster, There is also the larger one from the chassis to the gearbox.

I would check both these and rub them down as it sounds like one has corroded and causing a bad earth
