Default electrical problem - 8th November 2016, 05:54 PM

we have go a 2002 mini with a electrical problem, when you switch on the headlights they go up and down rapidly, operate any switch except rear fog lights and the stop and operate correctly, also the led on the rear fog light switch is on permanently, but switch and fog lights operate correctly! anyone had the same? or any ideas of what it might be?

Yes it can.

But if the battery was as low as that, the car wouldn't start.
