|Light just doesn't go off
My Kancil's door ajar light (the indicator on
the dashboard) is on all the time. It happened
after I washed the car. Does anybody know
where the fuse for that light is?
It's quite dim but when I open the door, it
brightens up. When I close the door, it is dim
again but it won't go off.
The door ajar light is wired to the door switches
and works by earthing the bulb to the body when the door is opened. What
probably happened is that water has got into the contacts of the switch,
allowing the indicator bulb to earth to the body and so causing the bulb to
glow. You can try spraying WD40 into each of the door switches to displace
any water. The reason why the interior light is not coming on is that light
requires a higher current through the same switch but probably
due to the poor contact, is not sufficient to light it.
That may be the explanation but the problem is
still the water ingress into the contact.
