United Kingdom Male
England Wanted: Mini Electrical Expert (South East, UK)

Hey guys,

So I've had a problem with my R53 since I purchased it at the beginning of the year whereby the sidelights come on by themselves (irrespective of whether the car's on or off!).

The car's had sidelights and spotlights (wired into BC1) retrofitted, my guess is it's likely to be down to one of these, but I've tried everything I can this end and ready to tag someone else in!

Wouldn't mind a specialist who thinks they may be able to resolve (rather than paying a dealer 80 to plug the car into a computer and to say there's no errors).

Has anyone got any contacts that may be suitable? Thanks in advance!

Try a proper job auto electrician. Often mobile. They tend to be a forgotten breed, hardly anyone seems to call them in. I have in the past and they've been brilliant. I think some auto electric issues are beyond the dealers - they are generalists.
