    Unhappy Help needed again guys-flashing interior lights

    ..............this happened to me in april and I thiught I had found the problem where my parrot was shorting a wire in the passenger fuse box, tonight its happened again..........interior lights flashing and the heating control is on and off in like 3 second intervals......ripped out parrot so it isn't anything from that, pulled out no 9 fuse in passenger compartment and the clicking and flashing stops.......but lights wont turn off manually and the doors wont lock, do you think there is another fuse down or possibly a relay........this car is getting on my tits now.....fix one thing and on comes another....as always its appreciated Andy

    by the way the clicking is still there with ignition off

    Nope, wont pop a fuse will pop the BCM if too severe! This happened to a member on here once... I had a short on the interior lights when I was wiring in the footwell lighting and it kept shutting down the BCM until the short was removed..

    no mate, that comes off of the UEC under the bonnet i believe

    Fuse 9 is one of three fuses for the IPC fusebox which explains why the central locking stopped working

    Check things on the cigarette lighter (just the illumination side of things) if you've had anything done to that, that comes from the BCM too
