Electrical Gremlins help please.
2000 156 V6 Manual,
I have electrical gremlins that are causing more than bearable grief.
The boot warning light is staying on even though the boot is closed.
I see there are two push buttons either side of the latch that still spring fine.
I have made sure both switches are down but still the light stays on.
does there need to be contact with the boot to complete the circuit? whats the best process for isolating the problem.
Subsequent to this the central locking does not stay locked, I assume because the car thinks the boot is still open.
The other problem, is that the speedo drops when the head lights are on and the indicators are used.
I read on the forum that this is normally a bad earth, but have cleaned the terminals and I still get the problem.
Much appreciated any help you can offer. Cheers.
