I recently developed a small but strange problem with my front fog lamps in my 2010 Opel Astra.
The lights come on of their own accord when parked up and locked up ! Normally the front fogs are only accessed with a button switch and can only be turned on when the engine is running and the main head-lights are on. Very strange behaviour ! One particular day they came on four times in one day. At first you swithed them off by unlocking opening and closing the drivers door. Later it developed to having to put the key in the ignition and pulling it out again to switch them off. Last Thursday I had put the car into a main dealer for it’s yearly service and explained the problem to them. While wating for the service, they came out to me and explained they had hooked it up to the diagnostic mahine which confirmed that there was a problem with the front fog lights. They said it needed a software update which cost me 55 euro and implied this would rectify the problem. Got home by lunchtime and at about 6.30-6.45pm that day as sure as dam it… excuse my french… someone knocked at my door and said I had left my lights on in the car. That was 55 euro well spent.
I left it go over the weekend to see how many more times they would come on but nothing so far. Anyone heard of this before or any ideas or advice would be greatfully accepted.
Thanks for your time… Cheers… Conor.
