C5 (X7) keeps turning random lights on when parked

Post by dme88 »

My C5 (X7) keeps turning random lights on when parked. It turned the parking lights on, even tho the setting was set to Auto, and car locked. Have anyone experienced something like this?

A while ago, it also turned on the half-beam, so I though I must have pressed the light button by accident, but this has happened 2-3 times.

If you have fitted any aftermarket equipment (head unit or similar) - this can interfere. If not, then try a BSI reset:

BSI Reset / Battery Disconnect / Reconnect Procedure

If this does not cure it, you may have a fault with the Engine Fuse Box or the Steering Wheel Control Module that controls the lighting. A diagnostic should be your first port of call.
