I Have the door open light always on now on the dash, i have cleaned all the contacts and pins and this has not cured the fault,

Now the rear wash wipe works ok, but does not return to the rest or park position...this is really odd, any ideas welcome,

thank you..

the light problem sounds like an earth wire from one of the switches grounding putting the light on does the interior light come on as well?
the wiper problem could be the rear wiper relay playing up.

Thanks for the reply, i am a bit confused by it having read it thru a few times, (dont understand the interior light bit sorry)..

its the warning light on the dashboard thats permantly staying on, its a warning light similar to say your oil pressure warning light...basically it tells you if any of the doors are not shut properly..this one of mine is on even when the doors are all shut...it should go out, but it doesnt..

The other thing is where is the rear wiper relay located, do you know.?

Thanks,

Frank...

the dash warning light is on the same circit as the interior light so if you have a dodgy door switch contact earthing out you would expect the interior light to be on as well, does you interior light work as normal with the door opening and closing?

there is a relay for the wiper it should be mounted on the fuse box inside the car,i think it's relay#2 should be red in colour your hand book should confirm the location.

Thank you for the fast reply, i understand now about the interior light, i have just gone outside to check this....

This is what happens...i close the drivers door with the interior light on, the light stays on for say 15 seconds or about, then you can hear a faint "click" from the dash and the interior light goes off, its kinda on a time delay, i think its always done that...does that help your diagnosis.?

The door opening warning light on the dash is still not going out....i have cleaned the brass looking pins and brass/copper 4 block thing on the tailgate..and this has made no differance...

So unsure how to progress...

Thank you,

Frank..
