Footwell Lights Fiesta 2009

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a Fiesta 2009. I'm female and know NOTHING about cars. I have had this car since 2009 from new and have noticed for the first time this evening as I locked it that there are lights on in the footwells of the drivers side and front passenger side.

I have pressed all the interior light buttons by the internal mirror but none seem to operate the footwell lights. Embarrassingly, I didn't even know there were footwell lights until now. I don't want to leave my car with these lights on as I'm pretty sure my car goes pitch black inside when I've locked it at night.

Obviously, either myself or perhaps my daughter in the passenger seat have inadvertently switched something on.

I would be very grateful for anyone's kind advice as to where such a switch is located so that I may turn it off!

I have just gone to mycarcheck.com and it is a Ford Fiesta Zetec five door hatchback.

Many thanks, Jo

Hi Pippin,

First of all, welcome to the forum.

Right, lets throw some light on your conundrum :)

The footwell lights work on the same circuit as the main courtesy light and will fade off when the courtesy light goes off.

It's totally normal behaviour and there is no seperate switch for them.

It's easy to take these things for granted and not notice them. (a couple of our members here took ages to notice that their particular cars had rear courtesy lights in their roof lining- ears burning yet Charlie? :P).

Everybody starts by not knowing much about cars, we all learn as we go and if you hang around and get involved with the banter and laughs you'll soon be speaking a totally different language (car speak).

Hope I have put your fears to rest?
