When testing the lights prior to coming home from our stay in the Cotswolds last wek I noticed the driving lights on our 1992 Swift Challenger went out if I pressed the car brake lights.  It didn't matter at the time as we only had 30 miles to do and it was morning but I obviously want to get it sorted before our next trip.

I realise I have got a connection/bad earth issue somewhere but can anyone suggest a likely starting point to look?  I have normal 12N/12S plugs and all the lights and bulbs work fine.

Cheers all

It's normally the 12n plug / socket that is the problem , i would start there , replacing them for new . The other place to check is the socket cable connections inside the car boot area .

had this many years ago and it was a faulty earth/negative caused by rust inside the light unit.

the only silly question is the one you do not ask.
