Pull the fuses one at a time to see witch circuit feeds the lights in question. if the fuse to lets say the windshield wipers feeds the lights in your dash, then you may need an electric expert to find the short circuit... if the lights die when you pull the fuse that is designated for the lights, then your lightswitch may be the root to the problem... happy hunting!

Have a seat cordoba. My problem is my remote fob key is not working i`ve changed the battery and the light comes on but the doors still don`t open

yeah my door lock wont open, i have to get in through the boot, i went to the seat dealership after a mechanic looked at it and said it was a barrel problem, made a few calls and its a manufacture part so 86 euro for the part and a 5 day wait and then whatever the mechanic charges to install. apparently its a problem on all Cordoba and a few VW since they make the engine and main parts. if i could get one in a scrap yard and use 2 keys i would this time of year n all, i just need some sort of lock asap. does this sound the same as your problem?

Is there a Haynes Manual for the 1.0L Seat Ibiza, 2000 version?

There is a haynes manual for 2000 on. All Fiat/ Seal have minor differences. I think that yours is probably the one that you have to remove the hub nut to take off the hub.

Car lights wont turn off

No we have not found a solution, as our car is a SEAT Cordoba, not JETTE, because you dont have SEAT Cordoba on your list of cars, possibly because your website is US based, and you dont have SEAT,s in the US
