  1. Intermittent Boot Lights Mk2.5

    Thank you both for that. I've tried with a multimeter this morning and when the boot is closed both wires are feeding 12v. When the boot is open and the lights are dim, the positive is feeding only 7v while the negative is at 0. Again, any amount of jingling the connections/scotch locks doesn't cause the lights to work/not work. They still are sometimes dim when the boot is opened, then randomly flicker to life, sometimes come on fine.
  2. Intermittent Boot Lights Mk2.5

    Thanks for that alz, I've been out to the car and had a good look round the rear lights and couldn't see any obvious earth. Am I right in looking for a screw/bolt into the body? I also removed the side trim from the boot to try trace the wiring which I could only follow as far as when it starts to go behind the rear drivers side seat. Also the second light uses 2 scotch locks onto the wires for the first light unit, if I remove the second light the first does get slightly brighter but does not come on at full power. What's strange about it all is that they sometimes come on at normal brightness. Cheers, Andy

    Do you know where I can find the earthing point for this? Thanks
  4. Intermittent Boot Lights Mk2.5

    Hi Guys, I'm looking some help with my boot lights not working as per usual. About a year ago I added a second boot light and now have 2 smd led panels. They have been working great and super bright until recently they will only partially light up. The problem is intermittent as sometimes they work fine but most of the time they are very dimly lit. This morning I removed the boot panels to check the wiring and no amount of jingling the wiring would change whether they lit up properly or not. Unfortunately I don't have a multimeter to help me check at the moment but does anyone have any suggestions to where I should look next? Thanks in advance Andy
