Hi there

Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 1 year ago.

This is a wiring or electronics problem - perhaps one of the main electronics boxes is faulty, or there is a loose ground wire somewhere.

The wiring and electronics will need to be checked at a garage.

All you can do yourself is check the wiring and look for any obviously damaged wiring or bad earths, and repair.
