hello Moirathere should be a switch on the lamp that you can set to 'off' to disable ithowever I suspect the fault is a sticking door switchso I'd try pushing the switches open and closed whilst watching the light as they should go out when closed, the light will take 10 seconds or so to go out the switches look like this and are located in the door shuts / pillars
Thank you Matt, I assume you did not see me second message re the urgency of my problem.
I did see the mechanic who in a very short time discovered it was due to the boot not being fully closed, this even though I had checked both doors and the rear flap twice !! it would appear it had something to do with the lower part of the boot flap.
I needed to know ASAP as I did not want to have any problems in the build up to Christmas.
A lesson was learned.........
