Reminds me of John's exasperated email comment after explaining our sulphur smell and hazard light problems to friends of ours currently motorhoming in Spain.

'You see Jan, one stays at home and the bloody thing still goes wrong, sat there on our drive stinking and flashing.'

It had me in stitches, anyway.

Disagree Kev, the thought of any such visual disturbance would probably be enough to put you off you Muesli.......

















Flashing lights can also upset some people - hence the BBC warnings.....

Nah, that would not be good on here.....

ChrisandJohn Have been so busy lately, with friends staying, trying to organise a house move and dealing with yet another motorhome problem, that I've not replied before or thanked people for their attempts to help with this one.

John tried to find ways to sort it himself but eventually, in the morning, rang our breakdown service. They sent someone from the RAC as it wouldn't have been possible (legally) to drive with the hazard warning lights still flashing. RAC man prised out the hazard warning switch and the flashing stopped. It was suggested that we ring our alarm fitter, which we did, but they didn't feel the alarm had anything to do with the problem.

It was New Years Eve but John was able to make arrangements with our nearest Renault garage to go over when they reopened on the Tuesday and get a new hazard warning switch fitted. All sorted.

Thanks anyway for the efforts, it is really appreciated that you're all there.

Spacerunner Just disconnect the starter battery, wait a few minutes then reconnect. This will reboot the ECU and should remedy the problem.

Penquin It could be due to a fault in the battery circuit, is there anyway that you can locate and remove albeit temporarily, the relevant fuse?

It will be one of the base vehicle fuses, not connected to the leisure battery circuits, the handbook may help you to locate the specific location, I hope that helps, or at least stops the flashing until you can identify the reason why it is doing it....
