Help. Coutesy light staying on after general cleanup
« on: 09 January 2018, 12:55:01 »

Hi folks

Thought I'd give the old girl a cleanup yesterday as she will sell on ebay this Thursday :'(. It was just a damp cloth over all surfaces.

This morning I took her out for a quick spin. Turned on the sidelights, there was a funny buzzing sound from the dash area and the courtesy light came on. Turned lights off.
Stopped car and restarted. No buzzing sound but the courtesy light stays on and the battery is going to run down.

It is possible that the courtesy light had been on all night as the starter was a bit sluggish. Light switch has always been a bit iffy in as much as you have to make sure it is well pushed in. I'm pushing it in a far as I can but the lights are staying on.

Charging my old laptop to see if there are any codes. Just wondering if anyone here has any thoughts?...Other than her being upset that I'm selling her :'(

Only way to extinguish the courtesy lights is to remove check control fuse. No 7.
Currently charging battery.

Hopefully, fixed issue. Disconnected battery and charged. When I connected the battery up again things seemed to be back to normal..Phew :y

Low voltage does do funny things to a modern car...

So the buzzing noise was the dash brightness adjuster. This morning the problem was back. I turned the ignition and sidelights on. When I adjusted the brightness the buzzing was audible on anything below full. Took the light assembly out and sprayed the rheostat? with contact spray. Also sprayed where I could see behind the beam selector dial. On reassembly fault seems to have cleared. There is no buzzing when I change the brightness. I'm reluctant now to say that the courtesy light problem is fixed,..., but am hoping so. :-\
