The brake light on the Statesman is coming on at random intervals. This takes place when the caravan is not connected. Under warranty a dealer replaced a switch. Did not solve the problem. Any ideas?

I would replace both your brake light globes (if one is faulty working sometimes and not others it will switch on the light)it is the cheapest starting point.

Beetle,
Do you mean the actual brake lights or the warning light on the dash?
I have an intermittent SRS Airbag warning light on mine. It's going in for a checkout next week.

I had a similar problem with Discovery, ended up being warn brake pads, had electronic sensors to warn you when they where nearly out before that start 'sqealing', just a suggestion.

Make sure that your new switch is aligned properly on the the brake pedal arm.

Another thing to check is the earths in the the tail light cluster. That can cause a lot of weird problems.

The problem is more than likely caused by the brake controller. Tekonsha Voyager controllers are prone to this. If under warranty jou could ask to have it replaced. I have wired mine up with a 4 pin connector and just disconnect it when not in use.

Will most probably bew the guy in the boot touching wires together in order to signal other drivers to his location. Next time you kidnap someone duct tape their hands to their ankles. Stops them trying to escape.

I have to ask, if the dealer had a crack at it under warranty and couldn't fix it, why don't you take it back and demand it fixed under warranty? Or try another dealer? I'm suprised they let the car go without the problem being solved.

Cheers.

I think you will find Barryr is correct.

There were several posts about this problem on the caravanners forum a couple of months ago. Suggest you scan the posts there.

The suppliers were replacing faulty traveller units.

If its the dash warning light then check and top up the fluid level.
