My Renault Megane's Grand Tour (2004) rear window heating…

Customer Question
My Renault Megane's Grand...

My Renault Megane's Grand Tour (2004) rear window heating stopped working together with the license plate lights. Also, the trunk sometimes doesn't open. Seems to be an electronic issue. Looking for the right troubleshoot steps.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried silicone spray or WD-40?

Tried silicone spray where?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 Renault?

It's a Renault Megan Grand Tour 1.6 16v

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've gone through all the cables that go through the trunk door. I know that this is a weak spot since I've already fixed several wires there. I've tried replacing the lights, replacing the lock mechanism of the trunk.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really no.

I can look that up later today. The problem is best described as follows:
- Trunk can't be opened while to engine is running
- Third braking light doesn't work
- Rear window heating doesn't work
- Licence plate lights don't work.They are all related in some way, because all of these symptoms came together. Maybe this helps?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
The last 8 numbers of the VIN are 32364989
