    Check the loom is plugged in ok at the REC as they all come from there.

    Have you had any work done on the car like a windscreen replacement etc?

    Sounds like the roof loom is damaged/ripped as incompetent window fitters 'forget' to unplug the loom from the sensor before they take the screens out.

    I would be checking that first. Might even be as simple as it being unplugged.

    i had the same problem
    when changing the window the guys from the shop had cut the wires while removing the glass.

    this made the fuse pop. With a fuse burned the lights are always on.

    Take off the covers round the rear view mirror and see if the rain sensor is plugged in (the lights use the same sensor). As others have said - either the windscreen fitted forgot to plug it back in, or damaged it taking the old screen out.
