another 206 question thread...
#1
Ok... neighbour is having a little electrical issue with her pug (Gasp: who would have thought)

Car: 206 quicksilver, 1.4petrol
year: 2001 (Y reg)
Problem: when the lights are on, the brake lights are on... essentially (they work normally when the headlights/lights are off)..



Any ideas on where to start looking before i go and start pulling the car apart?
Given the choice between Niall and the sheep. I would choose the sheep!

Wrong bulbs fitted or incorrectly fitted would be my bet

As Piggy says, it's usually because someone's fitted a single pin bulb in the twin pin brake/tail light holder. Since it's a 206 the other main option is a light cluster full of water, causing horribly corroded earths and tracks.

I'll go with that, was exactly what happened to mine, never seen so much crusty white shit in a light cluster before lol! Though the brake light switch had been kicked by a passenger as well lol. 206s have nearly as many design flaws as 306s. lol

Yeah as said wrong bulb.

Normally when a tail light is where a stop and tail is mentioned to be.
