Hi there all. My Mrs's AU XR6 has started to develop a couple of funny gremlins in the electrics with the major being
1. Interior light wont go out completely. It burns really dull when doors are shut and locked.
2. When locking the car, the right side headlight flashes with the blinkers. For some reason the front right blinker wont work at all. just flashes real fast like there is a blown globe( globe changed-removed-tested and replaced).
3. Slowly but surely all the dashlights are dissapearing.
4. The aftermarket alarm keeps going off. Its been tested and reported as ok.
Any help or advice greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Dazza

My (Guess) would be that somewhere in the loom it has worn through and is earthing out on the chassis. Only a guess but makes sense in my head lol
