Re: ducato electrical problem

Sounds like an earth fault to me. Take off the rear light cluster disconnect the earth and clean it up with sand paper, gently just get all the gunk off it. If its wet in there you have a sealing problem causing moisture to get in and corrode the earth and cause it to break down. It'll either be really easy or a real pain and you might need a gallon of petrol and a box of matches!!! Good luck.
