Flickering or flashing regularly?

When my stop light came on intermittently recently it just needed the brown sensor on the thermostat re-plugging

Mine came on for no reason and just went away about 5months ago.1 month later the head gasket went, possibly because of thermostat sticking.Sad Change the sensor and maybe for the sake of

Mine done it recently, was the fan controller unit (Bitron) that caused it as it had got wet after going through a puddle.

Also done it before when the Brown sensor packed up.

Could also be the thermostat, worth investigating.

Doubt its the thermostat as temps are normal, I'm guessing fan controller sending dodgy signal to ECU.

Cheers Thumbs up

Nope other car. Haven't checked OP switch no. I've never seen the STOP light flash before, usually it stays fully illumninated.

I've just been out in the car now and had the same problem....(flashing on and off quite fast)

I'm assuming its the brown sensor on the thermostat housing not being plugged in correctly as the fans kept cutting in and out on their own..

Anyone else confirm this?
