Hi!

I have been having some wierd electrical problems with my CEED -08. My dashboard sometimes flashes like i was turning the "lighting knob" on the left side of the steering wheel (flashes bright orange and normal orange). It flashes 4-5 times and then stops. The driver seat belt light in the dashboard lights up for 2-3 seconds. It then returns to normal as if nothing happened. No fault codes no nothing...

I was also wondering this also has something to do with my stereo. The stereo does not shut down when i pull the key out of the ignition. I have to turn it of manually. I think it turns of by it self after a couple of minutes.

Anyone had similar issues?

Kind Regards
Jens

There were some users reporting the same issue.

Are you holding your cell phone in the area in front of the gear stick ? (below the ash tray and where the USB/AUX/cigarette lighter connectors are).

The cell phones were causing interference with the on board electronics when being placed there. When moved away, the problems were gone.
