Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
I noticed that I have something funny happening with my rear lights. When the turn signal is on (either one) the dashboard rear fog light indicator dimly lights. If you apply the brakes the same indicator glows brightly. From the outside when the turn signal is on that same side brake light tends to fade in and out in time with the blinker.
Cars been pretty good to me so far other than a new transmission at 85,000 miles.
Details - Sport X Type, 3.0, 2002 - 120,000 miles
Summary Opinion - love this car
Any ideas before I take it back to the dealer for their fix?
Usually when this kind of thing happens it will be a bad earth, that means that somewhere within the lighting circuit the earth cable has broken down. Try and locate the earth cable that connects the rear bulbs, see if any rust or damage is visible.
If not you could try adding a seperate earth cable to a clean point close to the bulb holder in the rear.
If this fails to work then it may be an idea to talk with an auto electrician.
