    Have you got your lights sorted yet? Sounds like the same problem I have. Spoke to VX today, they think the light control unit is knackered. Started the thread below on the subject....

    have been told to book car in to dealer and let them have a look as its still under warranty. have a sneaking suspicion that when i pulled the headlining down to see if rear lamp wiring was there i may have disturbed something lol
    but wont tell them that.

    Actuator switch on the door must be faulty. Probably a couple of quid to replace.

    when you have the door open - does the "Door Open" warning display?
