Auto lights stopped working and when switched on manually every time you dip the clutch to change gear the brake light comes on, head lights go from full beam/dipped/side lights randomly. Abs and asl warning lights come up on dash for a day then go the return.( the system has been checked and is working fine). Has it gone computer senile?

Check all earths , especially from engine . trans to body . Check wiring up at brake pedal and brake like switch . Get it scanned for fault codes which should be stored and can be retrieved . Could be dud light sensor . If all fails , get an exorcist .
