Hi can you help me with my query?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 14 days ago.

Dear customer, the battery can indeed run down, while you should disconnect the battery at night.

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 14 days ago.

Dear customer you should check the place where the sensor fits, check that it is connected correctly and check its connections, if everything is in order you should replace the sensor. Often the problem is the wiring of the sensor or the connector or that the sensor is out of place and does not fit.

I turned the interior lights off and the sensor has stopped flashing

Doesn't the dashboard tell you that the damper is open?
