Hi - Just joined the forum and hope to glean some info from you people and contribute if I can.
I have just bought a Titanium 18 diesel 08 plate. I do not find the manuel that instructive and not being technically minded (but like to now how things work) I wondered if someone could answer a couple of questions for me.
Above the rear view mirrors there are two small round lights on the console that houses the interior lights. I am sure one glows orange and the other is clear but after messing around with things I now have neither showing. I believe the orange one is a sensor for security and I wondered whether I have inadvertantly disabled something ? what is the clear one for and how is it activated ? I have also pressed a type of rocker switch that is next to the drivers door handle ? Would this have had something to do with this ?
Thanks for any advise.

I believe the lights you talk of are submarine lighting. Basically, LEDs that light up the centre console. It sounds like you've popped the LEDs out of the fitting. Pull the courtesy out and you should be able to see the LEDs to push them back in. Not sure about the rocker switch, could be to disable rear electric windows for when you have children in the back???? Wouldnt swear to that though.

No luck - I have discovered that the orange lihts come on when my main lights are on. Still do not know what the clear ones are for or how they come on or what the swtitch that is net to the door handle does. If nobody can give me an answer then i will call in at the dealers when I am next passing.

the rocker switch is usually for operating the central locking when inside the car.
