brake operates courtesy light
Here's a strange one...
2 weeks ago I had to have a new battery fitted, as the old one wasn't keeping a charge. I also bought a solar trickle charger to help keep the new battery in good condition (I drive mostly short trips at weekends only)
A few days ago I noticed that when I brake, the courtesy lights (overhead and footwells) come on (not full on, just glowing).
Also when I set the alarm there is a red light I never noticed before, somewhere within the stereo (with the head removed).
I found out today the stereo has stopped working too - tries to power up, powers off again - repeats for ever (fun with the aerial going up and down over and over again)
My best guess is a short between the brake light and courtesy light circuits, but I thought I'd just check in case there was an easy (fuse?) fix for this before I call the garage...
TIA for any advice!
