Mk2 Electrical Issue

08 January 2015 - 05:20 PM



My cars developed another weird and wonderful electrical problem. Basically the instrument cluster always indicates the headlights are illuminated sometimes. Seems unpredictably random when it decideds to do it. Normally this results in the cluster LCD staying illuminated long after the engine is off (not 100% its the cause, but seems to corrolate).


Makes no difference if the light switch is on or off, or even disconnected from the car. There is no bonging when opening the with the lights switched off, and the lights aren't illuminated. Any ideas where to start? I've had the cluster out and double checked the connection at the back. Earth points are my next stop. Unsure where to look for them though.


Any input welcome :)
