Hi,my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your question.
From what you are describing and the symptoms that you are having is consistent with a electrically failing brake light switch which is mounted on the brake pedal arm.

hi mike. I still haven't had time to look at my clio. one small point though.with the car headlights on the indicators seem fine and its only when I brake as ive mentioned and you've already replied to that the problem occurs...but why does the interior dashboard rear fog light keep flashing on when I put the side lights / headlight or almost any other auxillary item on in the car...there is also an audible click noise...even without using the brakes.

I have disconnected the brake light switch on the footpedal and the problem persists. any other ideas
