Can anyone tell me what a red light at the front of the car hazard display on the dash indicates? Given the door open lights on the side it would suggest the bonnet but there doesn't appear to be anything open.

The open/close switch is obviously stuck in the bonnet open position. You could get a replacement but I just removed mine and taped up the connector. The car now thinks its always closed.

The switch is located under the slam panel, just a few bolts not hard to get to...

Correct :thumbs: You have to remove the nearside headlight unit to access the attachment bolts for the microswitch assembly

The micro switch will have broken (lost its click-click action). Two rivets on the plastic bracket can be drilled out, then the switch replaced with one from an electronics parts store (e.g. Maplin or RS).
