Strange electrical problem after switching engine off

Recommended Posts

Really hope someone can help me or has experienced this before!

All of a sudden whenever I switch the engine off either side of the indicators will come on, I can't switch them off and it also stops me being able to lock the car!
When I switch the engine back on it runs fine, the hazards come on immediately which is a bit odd as well as the windscreen wipers.

All I've done the day before was swap the front brake discs and pads, but none of the electrics were touched.
I've tried leaving the battery off all night, but that's made no difference. 2 garages have provided help either.

MK1 Kuga
2.0 2WD 59 Plate.

 
Thanks,
Jay

Afraid can't help as having electrical problems myself have taken car in garage twice and all they seem to do is stick diags on (£80 a pop)and say it's this or that, but still having problems, not impressed with garage as they rely to much on sticking a machine on.  What happened to the days of real mechanics who relied on their own experience.  Car wouldn't start the other day 2 days after getting it back, chargehand in garage doesn't seem to have a clue.  Mine wouldn't start the other day but ignition system wouldn't switch off, onece sorted for now getting rid off.

Mk1's had a problem with the  windscreens leaking water into the fusebox area iirc?, worth a good look around to see if there's water damage to the wiring or any dampness.

I'd go with the corroded fuse box theory, had it on a Mondeo I had a thorough clean under the box cured it, just pulling and cleaning the fuses is not goood enough.
