    It just a niggling fault but for some reason the sensor on the drivers door has stopped working. So now the lights don't go on when you open the door and it doesn't do the beep noise for when you have left the lights on.

    Does anyone have any idea. I cant find the part on the door that tells when it is open... does anyone know where it is?

    Cheerssss

    I think I heard it was built in to the door locking catch.

    I could be wrong mind.

    Yes, mine does this.
    The microswitch is attatched to the door lock mechanism. I`ve been spraying the area with electrical contact cleaner with straw attatchment, but still not working.
    I`ll move on to spraying WD40 soon in the hope of curing it, but it looks like I`ll have to either live with it or take the door card off and have a look.
    The metal door inner needs to be removed to reach the lock as well I believe.
