    I have the same problem.

    When I brake, the indicator lights come on (constantly) instead of the brake lights. Also when I indicate, all the rear lights start flashing randomly.

You probably have a bad earth connection or water getting in take out your bulbs and give the connections a good clean.

Renault megane, 2004 1.4 dynamique, brake lights not working (both sides but high level one ok) have checked bulbs, fuses, connections at cluster, loom in areas for visible damage, all other lights ok

Seems to me that the brake lights switch has a problem there is a way to test this problem, you normally press the clutch pedal and hold down the start button to start the engine, now try pressing the break pedal down and hold the start button, if the car does not start up change the brake pedals switch.

Wont go out of park

Do the brake lights work? You may have a defective brake pedal switch. There is a switch which knows if the pedal is depressed. If it's not depressed it will lock the shifter in place. That switch is located above the brake pedal under the dashboard. If the brake lights DO work, then you may have a problem with the solenoid that locks the shifter. When you press the brake, you should be able to hear a small click come from the gear selector. You can try to replace the brake switch if the brake lights don't work. Should only cost a few $$.

05 plate renault megane 2tr automatic. brake lights dont work but bulbs are fine and fuse is ok. any idea where the problem might be

Then the only thing left to check is the brake switch, which is usually located under the dash, linked up to the brake pedal itself. It's the true secret to the inner workings of the brake light. If that switch is defective, either the brake light won't come on at all, or they will stay on all the time. Either way, you either need to replace it, or maybe it just unhooked from the brake pedal and you need to fix it.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
