When exiting the car all the electrical stuff used to turn off when you opened the door but now everything stays on and I have to turn off everything manually. When I say everything I mean the radio, lights etc. Has anyone else had this problem or know what might be causing it. I have a thought that maybe the door switch is knackered but I haven't got around to checking it yet.

I mays well mention my electrical gremlin, being same subject and all....

Happens to the steering wheel controls occasionally, they go whacky and pretty much do opposite of what there meant to do, lasts anywhere between couple hours or days lol

Anyone know anything about this?

Cheers

turn on your car and hold the menu button for 3 secs or the other button

jds.88, next time start a new topic. But basically with audio controls on steering wheel you'll find that the head unit controls them. Maybe reset? Or check the circitry on them. I know my headunit got confused at one stage, volume up turned volume up, but volume down also turned the volume up. I guess it was telling me "if its too loud your too old"! After i switched my car off and then on again started working properly.

As for this topic. If your interior light doesn't come on when you open the door then i'd say it's to do with your door switch. Just check that.
