    Have checked all the fuses just to see if any draining there was no problems with any of them, then tried the doors, bonnet & boot been left open to see if that did anything, when the passenger door or the boot is left open it does drain a small amount, not hugely and doesn't lose any more after a certain point so it can't be that either. Some fuses were missing from the fuse box so I did replace them, not sure if maybe that is the problem, will have to see how it goes.

    My Auto light stays on when you haven't got anything selected even pressing it won't turn it off. But like you I thought before it did turn off. So I'm not sure either. Everything works fine though

    Check to see if the boot light is staying on when the boot is closed
