    Ok guys, thanks.
    I'll try to fix it myself. If it's an earth fault I will simply run a new earth to the brown wire. This should work, will let you know how I get on.....

    ok, problem solved. I ran a new earth wire but no joy. I noticed that the connection on the light cluster was damaged (where the faulty earth pin connects). Replaced the light cluster (£7-from breakers yard)....problem solved!
