[DML] electrics and steering wheel


I have noticed that when I apply the brake (when car is running or stopped
with key in ignition) the sidelights and a bulb in the binnacle come on too
(the brake lights still work though).  I realise that its prob a crossed
wire somewhere but was wondering if it's something that has happened to
anyone else to help me pinpoint the problem quicker.  I have not as yet had
a chance to start diagnosing it as I only noticed last night.

I also removed my steering wheel and lined it up but noticed the other day
that it seemed to be off centre again (as if I needed to move it round
another spine or two).  When I got in tonight to drive, things appeared
normal again and she was sitting dead centre.  There is no pull in the
steering or drifting that would suggest the track rods ends need replaced.
Its not a major problem but thought I would post it in case it turns out to
be something I need to sort out.



Ps: anyone have any tips to repairing a crack in the binnacle.  Thought it
was worth a shot before I replace it.
