Re: dash cluster lights faintly on after driving with lights on

I've had the radio button lights half-on under the same circumstances. I think it's probabl yto do with the Body Control Module. Oddly enough, I thought I'd sorted it by taking it out and spraying all the contacts with switch cleaner, but it started doing it again. It's seems to do it when the weather is wet.

Re: dash cluster lights faintly on after driving with lights on

I would ABSOLUTELY get it sorted by them! No, it hasn't caused me any problems and to be honest, I could probably leave the car for a fortnight before it flattened the battery, but I wouldn't want anything else to go wrong. I think Body Control Modules are big if they need replacing. You could maybe leave it until nearer the end of the warranty to make sure you get it replaced (if that's what the problem is) as late as possible though.
