Interior light
« on: 15 January 2021, 14:41:05 »

The alarm went off and it would seem that the interior map light is not dimming and going off.It does go off when ignition is turned but back on again after and staying on so could be a timer fault or any other suggestions to overcome this problem would be most welcome.Is there a relay?

Well some good news and bad,I reconnected the battery after being off for a day and the interior light was off and appears for the moment to be behaving.I'm sure it will reoccur again but for now ok i did hear a slight whining noise for 20 seconds or so but a little unsure what that was.Thanks for now and a safe new year to all members

That wining noise was probably coming from the warning buzzer like mine did. It cleared itself for a day or two but then reappeared again .
Not saying it's the same identical fault but if you can find my post and read through it you may have the same symptoms/ fault.
My interior light wasn't going off properly,warning buzzer was sounding but muted,quieter if you put on the parking lights or even with the key in ignition and doors shut.
It turned out to be a common blue wire that connects the central locking,warning buzzer ,door aperture switch,and also goes across into the drivers door .mine was this wire that went into the door.it was low to earth and fooling the central locking ecu to turn the interior light on ( or not turn it off !) I unplugged the door connector and it cleared. There was some water in the door connector but even after drying it with a hairdryer the wire was still low so earth so I disconnected it. Everything is working so its either something unimportant,something I've not noticed yet or something that my car doesnt have  fitted.
Next time I take door panel off il see where it goes

Could that be the heating/aircon vents behind the dash resetting themselves? Always had that on my CDX Desmond. Perhaps a more informed OOFer can confirm or say that i'm talking horlicks.  ;D Which is highly probable.  :D
