Parking Lights

3 posts in this topic

Hi, new to this, I have an 07 plate S-max, which has recently developed a problem with the parking lights.

Last couple of times I've parked it, locked it in the usual way, I have later noticed that the drivers side parking lights are on.

At first I thought that I must have left the indicator on, but when I go back to the car, the indicator stalk is in the mid position but the indicator light on the dash is flashing.

I normally leave the light switch in the auto position so I tried switching it to the off position to see if it made any difference, the result was the same.

I suspect that that this is due to water ingress somewhere but would appreciate comments from anyone who has experienced similar problems or from anyone who knows what is going on here, thanks.

Try a battery reset first (if you have your radio code, that is!)

This has just started to do the same with my 3 year old Smax. Hubby died Feb and it didn't do it to him. Can you tell me how the parking light is set to stay on in case I have done this. Had to call the RAC and felt such a fool at having a flat battery only.
