XF Interior Lights


Recommended Posts

Hi all, new to the site. Own an XFR100 and still love it. Wondering if anyone is or has experienced issues with the interior lights above rear view mirror turning on and off by themselves, and if there is a fix?

Hi Wessley,

My 2011 XF-S has the same problem - there is another thread on here about that.

Apparently it's caused by heat. Haven't cured it yet, but it seems the way forward is to swap over to LED bulbs, which I intend to do as soon as I work out how to remove the light fittings front and rear.

Hello Chaps. 

I had exactly this happening recently but only in the hottest days. I think it’s due to the ambient temperature rather than heat created by the bulbs so I doubt changing to leds will help. 

Somewhere on here it was suggested that smothering the PCB in glycerine helps. I haven’t tried it yet but I plan to give it a go.

Think more or less everyone has had this. I've not notified it being especially related to temperature. Just sometimes it happens, then it can run for months on end with no issues and then suddenly it happens almost daily for a period. Not bothered me enough to do any serious troubleshooting.
