    Thumbs down Fiesta dash lights

    I have a fiesta 54 reg and I have noticed during daylight ( when car lights are off ) the dash lights up as I brake. Sometimes it flashes, sometimes it stays on and other times does not light at all. There does not seem to be anything wrong with the brakes Nothing in handbook
    Can anyone throw any light on this phenomenon for me.

    That sounds like a short in the electrical system?
    Worth having a look at the fuse box, and find out where the fuse is for the break lights and dash lighting.

    Failing that, bet an auto electrical engineer to do a scan on it, good luck

    It sounds like a faulty earth or the wrong bulb in one of the rear light clusters, causing feedback to the sidelight circuit.
