      Nah don't think so man, there's no bonnet switch on mine anyways.
      Could be leaking to earthe somewhere, do you have the wiring diagram for it?

          Take all the switches out one at a time anbd clean them up with a small wire brush. Lite spray of Inox and check the dash light again.
          Move on to the next door and repeat procedure

              Since I rolled my Paj the passenger door switch plays up in hard right hand corners.
              The whole system is pretty simple and I checked the switches by simply fixing all switch wires to the ground.
              All lights out - all good and no wiring problem.
              Add one switch at a time and check the light again until you got to the faulty one.
              And good to know that I'm not the only one that can't find a switch for the back door...

                The switch for the tail gate (rear door) light is inside the door and works off the locking mechanism. Take the door trim off and check it out, it can get choked up with dust and moisture.

                      Thank you! My rear door switch has been playing up for months, I installed led interior lights and hadn't been able to use them on door. Took me 15 minutes to fix, cheers!

                          What do you mean, as in wrong setting maybe or as in spin the cap 180?
                          I can take a pic of where mine is set to if you want.
                          Have you tried cleaning out the idle air control valve in the throttle body? How are the plugs? And did Leander cleaning up the rotor and dizzy contacts?

                              Me laugh at someone else's expense, never lol
                              No wackas m8, will do it in the morning for ya
                              For reference though have a look under cap where no1 plug comes out and routes a few inches away to the rotor contact, it should be at the back(11-12 o'clock if standing at the front of the car), not sure how you started it on no2 though haha well done
