    Help required, we have a Bavaria , Pilote factory, A class. When the drivers door is closed the light above the
    Driver (led) slowly goes out , but never fully extinguishes , hard to see in daylight , but visible at night , ocassionally fully extinguishes, but more often not.
    I assume there is a relay/micro switch somewhere but where ? Currently drawing a blank with dealer who has no idea. Any ideas please.Thanks

    Ours does the same. It may well be some residual current as it does out over a matter of a few minutes most of the time. I simply gave up figuring it all out and now don't bother about it. Annoying, though.....

    Just seen the "led". Some of the led bulbs do that , even mains ones. You'll probably find if you swop the bulb it will disappear.
