I'm having issues with the partners wagon, the interior lights are staying on like a door is open and when I lock the car it sounds the horn as if there's a door open. I replaced passenger side door sensor as I'm sure that's the problem but nothing, even when I disconnect the sensor it should act as if the doors are shut but it doesn't and the lights stay on.

All ideas are welcome.

Maybe the tailgate if its not the door? When you say you're sure that it was that one, what was wrong with it?

Not sure if it will help at all but some other stuff in this video

The passenger door wasn't turning the switch off so we would have to open and close it until it turned the lights out. I have turned the side lights off and removed centre roof light but its the horn when locking that's annoying.

My tailgate turns my interior lights on but the misses wagon doesn't, any one know where the tailgate switch is as its not on any of the pillars like the doors so I'm thinking it has to be in the latch.

In my wags when working with doors open I usually take the switch out and unplug it to save power as it keeps the lights off but when I disconnected the switches out of the misses they all stayed on so there's a fault some where.

Thanks for the vid steedy, just double checked it all and the switch was buggered in passenger door and tailgate sensor/switch was also buggered so sorted them out and its working as it should.

Cheers guys
