Help Sensor lights on

Hey, Picked up my Alfa yesterday, and whilst I am enjoying driving it, both the Bonnet and Boot open lights are appearing on my dashboard.
This is a constant red line light in front of the bonnet and boot.

Even though this isn't a massive issue, I was just wondering where the sensors are located on the bonnet/boot and what the possible issues could be?

Thanks in advance for any help given

Could just be damp in the Switches, especially if the Car hasn't been used for a while. This is not uncommon and is sometimes an Alfa " autofix, " my Boot Switch did !!!

The Boot Switch is part of the Boot Lock and the Bonnet Switch is under the hole that the Peg fits into, not too sure which side but I think it's the Nearside.

Plenty of info on this subject, just do a Search and you'll find all you need.

Good luck.

My boot light and dash light didn't work when I bought my Spider last year, I had to change the lock to get every thing working again.....
