    Default interior light and dash symbol issues

    Hi Guys

    I am new member with a 53 plate club but did not think I would need to post an issue so soon!

    I have a car symbol on the dash (showing all doors closed) all the time and cant get the interior light to turn off, to get it off I need to turn it on but the dash symbol never goes.

    Even when I force the interior light off when by turning it on and drive the car continually beeps as if a door is open?

    Tried all the obvious but no luck, any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Sounds like possibly one of the door sensors is stuck (or frozen). How you'd narrow it down I'm not too sure... I'd start off by giving each lock mech a good squirting of WD40 or similar and work from there.
    Doubtless someone who's not guessing as much as me will be along shortly.

    Take the blue fuses out in the boot and re seat them that should fix your door symbol issue.

    Is there any sign of water or condensation in the fuse box area ?

    it may be worth takign the blue fuses out and spraying the spades with WD40 then reseating.
