i have a problem on ford mondeo 2009 mk4 titanium x 5dr hatch on a return journey i noticed when i pressed the breaks my dash was displaying my luggage compartment was open, on closer inspection i noticed all the rear lights were dimming when the break was pressed and the boot lid was shut tight
i did notice that the left hand break light bulb had blown so replaced bulb at a garage on way home but that did not sort my problem out.
the break lights are dimming all rear end lights inc number plate light etc and still getting luggage compartment open when pressing the break peddle,
normally i would say bad earth....? but ive removed both bulb holders away from the loom to the rear light clusters on body
but ive noticed its even dimming the boot interior light when the bulb holders are removed from both sides and the break pressed
which then points me to the tail gate center stop light..?
ive removed the plastic cover to the tail gate but can not see any water any where causing the problem
just wondered if anyone could point me where to look next
i can only think its a break in the boot lid wiring at the moment but wanted to ask before going any further
i did notice if this helps, that if the lights are off, the luggage compartment did not beep and display as oftern on dash
thanks in advance for any help
