Hi you have a bad earth or relay on the system some where.
just to aliminate a couple of things to see if the back boards(clusters)are ok just undo the plug with the cables the light board on one side onlyand try to see if when you put the ignition on there is eney change when you use the opposit brake or flasher,then do the same with the other side,if you notice when you do this that when one of the boards is removed that the other side seems to work ok its proberly the light board(cluster board gone,if not you will have to look at the front,sorry I cant help more,its not as easy as it would be with the car infront of me,all the best.

Megane coupe 1999 rear fog indicator comes on when brakes pressed, fogs don't work or high level brake light.


I have the similar problem with my 2000 model. On mine I have narrowed it down to the rear light cluster on the right as you look at it from the rear (drivers side in the UK). Here's how I fix mine, although it does keep happening every now and again:
Remove the lights cover from inside the boot, it is held in place by a couple of plastic nuts.
Remove the strip of lights that are clipped into place.
There is an electrical connector block attached to the now removed light cluster. Undo this and the whole set of lights will be free.
Where the connector block fits to the light cluster clean all of the terminals. I use one of my wifes nail emery boards.
Make sure the female connectors on the connector block are all fairly snug so when put back together it is a tight fit.
Clean with electrical contact cleaner if you have any (not really necessary but I had some anyway).
Reconnect the block and test your lights, put back together.
I suspect it is an earth fault but I ran a separate earth to the unit but it didn't improve.
Other faults I noticed is the rear wiper operates when the front one only is on and I touch the brakes. Also when I lock the car when the indicators flash to show it is locked the rear high level brake lights flash as well. I was thinking of trying another light cluster, but 25 pounds from a breakers yard seems a little steep for a minor irritation.

Renault laguna 1.9 dti, 2000 'v' reg, old shape estate. Indicators flash at double time when braking. Fog light lights up on dash when braking. If lights are on a night and you indicate, all the lights do...


Your problem is you have a bad connection somewhere like at parking lights/stoplights/rear lights/so what you do is remove all parking and rear lights then turn on indecators and check the lightsyou will find that one of them has a bad earth and when you put them back in the lights flash dimmly and thats the one with a bad connection or a bad earth going to that light.
Let me know if you still have a problem Ron
