Have done my fix and seems OK, but will run car a bit longer before giving definite answer, as problem was always intermittent, also will try and download photos if I can. Joe


The photos of my solution are here.

Hi, I have experienced the same multiple light system fails as others in my 57 plate C3; . The lights were intermittent, they'd work for a while, then malfunction, then work again, all for the rear left lights.
Now none of the lights work in that cluster.
I've followed the fix/solutions posted earlier in the thread and on investigation, the fix (earth wire by-pass) has been applied in the car's past. I've checked the bulbs, they're all intact and there doesn't appear to be any corrosion or weather ingress.
Any ideas??

It will be something common to that cluster, like the earth.

It may be worth investigating the 'earth fix' as been applied properly and maybe even meter it to see that it is good.

Thanks, I took the car down to a local garage, he had a look and tested the earth/circuit etc. Turns out that the previous fix hadn't been done properly. The car sparky spent a few minutes re-doing the earth by-pass then re-set the ECU.

The car works.
