    Found something new about the car.

    while messing with my interior i found out, if you pull the headlight switch, the interior light comes on, i know on a corsa c pressing it turns on the light, but didnt know nothing about the astra. thought you should know.

    Brings to light a question - how many people actually read the user manual for their car? heh

    Not as bad as me mate. I already knew it had the switch, just pull it out & all that

    anyway, 1 day i wondered why it wouldn't turn off. I started flicking all sorts of switches. Switches in the back & front & it wouldn't turn off. Only when a good number of hours had passed did it turn off.

    Opened & shut all doors firmly at work. Started smacking the interior light, trying to pry it off but gave up as i didn't want to break it

    Posted here saying i can't get the bugger to turn off.

    Bearing in mind this was AFTER i'd found out about the interior switch anyway

    Turns out i'd totally forgotten about it & it just needed pushing back in

    cue major embarrassment

    It doesn't matter how many times I tell my girlfriend about this, she still continues to press the light looking for a switch.

    Also it makes you think there must be a massive amount of Astra owners out there with no idea there car has this switch.
    Previous Astras: 1994 Cesaro 1.8 16v | 2002 SXi 1.6 16v | 2001 Coupé 2.0 Turbo | 1999 LS 1.6 16v
    Other Vauxhalls: 2001 Vectra 1.8 16v| 2003 Vectra GSi 3.2 V6 | 2005 Signum CDTi 150
