2003 cabriolet c4--Hood switch button lights won't go off.

Recommended Posts

Two issues I can use some education.

1--Out of the blue, my battery has been drained a few times and I discovered that the hood and trunk panel lights--on the left side of the driver's side--doesn't turn off. All other accessory lights; door makers, dome, and dash do turn of after 3-5 minutes, or immediately with remote key lock.

2--About at the same time my convertible top computer module (996.618.111.04), below the second relay location, started to constantly click. It sounds like a blinking turn signal. Taking out fuse B5 at the foot fuse panel, stops the clicking.

I have switched out the part (996.618.111.04) with a working loaner module but the clicking persists.

Both problems persists whether I lock the car with or with out the key.

And to complicates diagnostics: Both problems go away when the car engine is on and in driving operation.

Thank you in advance for your help.
