    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 145k

    Default interior lights

    hit a rather large pothole on friday night , hit it so hard the CD jumped & the glovebox flew open.
    now for the strange part , all of the interior lights came on , even though there was nothing illuminated on the dash to say any doors were not shut properly .
    I got out of the car to check for major damage ( none ) then when I got back in & closed the door they went off .
    is it possible that something in the car had detected the impact as a crash ?
    no airbags or pre tensioners went off & no airbag warning lights came on .
    have since checked the car on diagnostic to see if any fault codes were stored in relation to it but nothing .
    I am just a bit concerned if this was supposed to happen or something has been damaged .

    hitting as hard as you say mate may have caused the switch to connect just enough for the light to come on so i wouldnt worry about it to much probably just the vibration that caused it

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Hit a huge pothole myself the other day. The brake pad wear sensor light lit up on my dash.
    Pads are fine, so replaced the sensor lead, and know its gone out.
    I put a claim into the council for the cost of the lead only £12 odd but its worth a go. I did report the hole to on their website, and they filled it in the next day.

    Perhaps take a pic of the hole and inform them about the hole just to cover your ass, in case anything is broken.
