Thanks for the welcome, the problem seems to be in the LH rear light cluster, I took it off and cleaned it, changed all the bulbs , that seemed to cure it for a bit, but not for long,

So it's in that area,i can only suggest you have another good luck again and have a really good clean of the pins and connectors etc,however it's probably the earth for the unit at fault,did you take it off and clean it and where it connects to the car body etc ?

Welcome to the forums, as above normally the earth, P12s are prone to earth faults.

Thak you so much for taking the time to answer me, I took off the cluster connecting plug and gave it a spray with WD40, but as for cleaning it where it connects to the car body No, is there a wire that connects to the body further back ?

Thank you Sean, I think finding and joining this club was the best thing I could have done, ( apart from buying the Primera in the first place )

Did the Earth wire fix this morning, I've been driving about all morning and all seems well,
Thanks for your help Bud,it's been invaluable, and very welcome.
Just one more prob and I'm sorted. Since I've had my car ( about 6 months now ) I've had a CD stuck in the CD player, it just wont come out. I have obtained a recon CD unit, and am about to fit it.
Is it true that I will have to have the new unit programmed into the car, and is it something only the Main Dealer can do ?

I have been having the same problem for last few weeks. The rear right already has the earth wire fix and so i assume I will need to do it on the rear left now too. I have just replaced all the rear bulbs as they looked in bad condition but am still having the problem.

Will do the rear left light earth fix and hopefully it works!
 
.....also have the cd stuck in the cd player problem so this has been a good post for me to find!
 
Thanks all

The simple earth fix, is only one cable needed or two cables.. I cant seem to understand where the second cable is used.

I don't think the earth fix will get your stuck cd out of your unit though.

Hi I'm having the same problem and am going to try this.. but it says you need 2 wires and 2 clips, but in the pictures it just shows using one of each..... do you have to do both light clusters or just the 6lb light cluster?

Hi and welcome to the forumHandshake
One should be sufficient on the offside cluster, do the other one if you need toThumbs Up

This helped me so much THANK YOU GUYS, my car started doing really crazy stuff (plus the cruise control issue when lights or turn signals are on). I thought the issue is inly on the back left side but it resolved iy half of the issues so i did the other.

Only one thing remains, when i steer hard right ir left when lights are on, the radio goes heywire, volume up or down, next song/radio station. If anyone can savd my life i’d appreciate it.

Hi and welcome to the forumHandshake
Your final fault has to do with the spiral wiring loom on the steering column, the loom can only be obtained from the dealer unfortunately. you can mask the fault with the last function you used as this is the one it affects, so hit the info button and that will cycle when the wheel is turned. There are a few threads on here about that issue
