Help Rear foglight coming on on its own???

Twice over the last couple of weeks, I've put the lights on after starting her up only to see the foglighs on the rear are on

The switch by the handbrake gearstick is lit as is the icon on the dash

Any ideas or similar occurances??

Mine used to do that every so often. Never really worked it out, but if bits of dust/fluff/crap got down the side of the switch by the gearstick, that would make the switch stick. I put it down to poltergeists in the end.

Check the rear earth connections too.

There is also a relay somewhere to prevent the rear fogs staying on when the lights are turned off and on again.
