My Ride: 330cd msport 2005
Orange light in between roof buttons

Calling all wise vert gurus

I am at my wits end and need help and possibly therapy lol

I have a 330cd msport 2005

As of a few weeks ago the lower light inbetween the roof buttons became illuminated orange. everything works as it should but this light is on constantly even once parked up and locked. I am extremely worried.

Today I installed a new battery to eliminate that from the equation. I cannot find any threads or info relating to this issue, my main theory is there is a short in the wiring or a sticky micro switch as the only time i have seen this illuminated before was when the boot shelf was up and the roof was odvs unable to retract.

I shall add pics in next hour or so.

I searched and searched to find my ideal first vert and first BMW, once breaks replaced i am saving up for a full re spray as this is the start of a long beautiful partnership.

Many thanks in advance all info and ideas gratefully accepted
