My MFD on Corsa B has been playing up recently, basically the bulbs in it are permanantly on even when i leave the car overnight they are still on when i go see it. What could be the Cause and Solution to this?

I got Leds of Cobra from ages ago! it has only ocurred since i disconnected the Headlight switch to paint the vent housing, but thats all been put back and checked.
Had a big problem tho when i was removing the switch, all my leds in the Dials & MFD blew including the fuse! They have been replaced now tho!???

I'd agree with born_upsideout...

if thaty happened then there is gona be a wire or connection somewhere shorting it so giving a permanent live. Not the easiest of cables to check the MFD one, and damn pricey to fix or replace cos its all behind the dash!

Shit! Don't like the sound of this!
Forgot to mention that the alarm buzzer for warning you that your lights are on also blew its fuse along with another fuse (cant remember the 3rd 1)

the mfd has 3 sources of feed. one from light switch, one from radio and one from ignition switch. mfd's do muck up and stay on but this was mainly on l-m reg corsa's and the pcb's inside were adapted to remedy this. more than likely the light switch has gone dicky since removal and this might be keeping it on. when it is in fault condition remove the switch n c what happens
