    Pulsing Interior Lights

    Recently i have noticed that intermittently my interior lights front/back are pulsing on/off under normal driving, i also have an issue that when i lock my car sometimes i turn back to notice the indicators flashing as if the alarm is going off but with no siren which i presume maybe related to the first problem.

    I have also noticed a ticking noice coming from somewhere behind the dashboard whcih sounds like a relay sticking possibly?

    any ideas please guys?

    cheers

    had the same problem , plus random false alarms , mine was a sticking micro switch in the door lock ,this is what turns on the lights and triggers the alarm , the funny flash when you lock the car is telling you it thinks the doors still open ,if i opened and slamed the door hard it would stop but since sprayed it with wd40 and at seems ok at the moment

    Same here. Its the pin switch inside the door lock/catch. you can tell its going to happen when the red light on the enge of the door stays on once the door has been closed. ive been told that you can either adjust the catch or replace the catch itself. I poked mine with a screwdriver and it has worked for now...

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?
