HELP - Light won't turn off
« on: January 30, 2017, 07:31:06 AM »
Hi guys,

On Saturday I noticed my passengers side fog light was staying on after the engine was turned off, I had been using the car so it was fine but now it's drained my battery.
Any ideas how I can turn it off?
The light has stayed on even though my battery is flat.

Thanks in advance

Did you leave an indicator on? That is the usual reason for a single light staying on.

No I noticed it the day before and was fiddling pressing all combinations to try and turn it off but nothing.

Does anyone know where the fuse box is to try and turn it off for the time being?

There's fuses in both the engine bay and in the passenger glove box/opening.

Sounds to me like a relay is made/broken. Its pretty rare, but if I were you, I'd look at the particular relay that covers the fog lights, remove it and give it a tap. It does happen. They are technically consumable so swapping it out is what i'd do to rule it out. If it goes away, you've solved your problem!  ;)

Just a thought but have you tried disconnecting the battery to reset the ecu?
