Wipers, dash and blower working with key OUT!
Had a funny thing earlier tonight - should challenge some of you bods out there!!!!!
Neighbour knocks the door and tells me that the hazard lights were on. So I went downstairs and checked ......they weren't actually on; the alarm had gone off.
Now I was right above the window when the alarm must of gone off but i couldn't/didn't hear any noise!!
I reset the alarm/car and carried on working but it went off several more times - i could just about hear it from the front now i was expecting it.
I opened the car and looked at the dash and was rather perturbed to see some of the lights on the dashboard on - the key was in my hand NOT THE IGNITION!!
The lights (airbag and ABS ones) were just about visible, but flickering.
I turned the ignition on, started the car and when for a quick drive - everything seemed OK.
I got back home, took the key out and the lights were still faintly on but I also noticed that when I took the key out, the petrol gauge moved from ~1/4 full to ~1/2 full.
I went back into the house to answer the phone and then my better-half told me that the wipers had just activated - again the key was IN MY HAND.
I went back out to the car and found that I could now also operate the wipers and the blower with the key still in my hand. The lights were also brighter than before.
So for now I have disconnected the battery but am a little concerned at what is happening.
If I was superstitious, I'm thinking that this would be one hell of a poltergeist!
Any help/ideas would be appreciated!
