Title: MK3 Galaxy Drivers Side Rear Parking Light Coming On When Locked
Post by: solar on April 13, 2015, 09:02:49 PM
Hi,
I hope someone can help as I am experiencing a strange issue and can't find a post which matches my problem.

When I pull onto my drive, park up, cancel the indicator and lock my 2006 MK3 2.0  TDCI Ghia Galaxy the rear drivers side parking light comes on after a few minutes or so. If I unlock again and start her the indicator comes on. If I cancel the indicator and lock her again the light comes back on.

Any ideas please as it's killing the battery? It went flat last week as we didn't use the car for a few days, this must have been the reason for it.

Thanks

hi, just managed to run the diagnostic test you suggested and got the following 3 DCT codes, F00616, C41568 and C42068. The problem has moved on, still getting the first problem but have had the indicator come on a few times today while driving down a straight road. Any ideas please?

Did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the exact same issue.
