Instrument panel staying on with key out - Elise S3 SC

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I'm the very happy new owner of a 2011SC bought from Trevor Gatland in Kerikeri. The car is gorgeous and generally going very well, except...

The instrument panel remains active even with the ignition key removed and an hour of waiting. The alarm & central locking won't activate when like this too.
The temporary solution is to dim the instrument backlights to zero. Then the whole unit switches off with the ignition and the remote fob alarm works as it should.
After reading the manual cover to cover, I tried the C3 fuse reset process. No change.

I've sifted through the main Lotus forum but have not found a similar tale of woe. Does anyone in NZ know of this issue? Am I doing something incorrectly?

Guidance or advice v welcome - or is there a local Lotus guru I might ask?
