    Default How can i turn my boot lights off

    I need a bit of help here.
    I am a dog trainer at weekends and need to keep my boot open in my 2003 signum for up to 8 hours at a time.

    Twice now the battery has gone flat due to the lights in the boot and the one on the inside of the tailgate staying on.

    Is there a switch for these lights anywhere where maybe i can put an on/off switch.

    I have tried pulling out all the fuses in the boot and none of these are for the boot lights.

    I have also tried pulling out the fuses in the engine bay and i found one that does cut these lights out but also cuts the rest ofthe electrics out for the car so then the car won't start.

    I can't keep getting a flat battery as the AA will be getting a bit sick of me.
    And the boot has to stay open as i have dogs in the back.

    Please help.

    Hmm, something not right then. Mine definitely does it - along with interior lights - as I've seen it do it on numerous occasions.

    Im going to take the bulbs out for now not the ideal solution but will stop me getting a flat battery.

    I was thinking of putting a switch in but each light has a seperate wire and can't see where they meet up.

    I don't know if there's anything that can be looked at with Tech 2 in relation to this - whether it's a programming thing gone awry in one of the modules that control the luggage compartment light - but given your location you're welcome to meet up if you like and have my Vaux-COM plugged in to have a looksy and see if we can suss out the reason for the problem.
