    Hi All

    This morning my alarm went off, I went down to turn it off, but it would not when pressing keyfob. Unlocked car with key and alarm stopped.

    I then noticed that all the warning lights on the dashboard were on, temp gauge was on max, brake lights stuck on. Even though the key was not in the ignition.

    The car will start and all lights go out temp gauge goes to normal. Once turn off ignition, all lights back on again.

    For now I have disconnected the battery.

    Has anyone else experienced this and does anyone know what is wrong?

    Need help.

    Thank you

    First thing I'd check is the wiring at the boot hinge as it's a common problem area, the wiring shorts out from the repeated opening and closing off the boot lid.
