    Hello,

    Do you have any idea after how many seconds after you closed the doors the light wil turn off?
    Mine if I open the door the light turns on but after I close the door it takes probably one minute to switch off the light unless I start the engine. I am trying to identify if this is the problem for my doors not getting locked/unlocked from the fob.

    The courtesy light stays on for around 30-45 seconds unless you either start the engine or lock the doors in which case it goes off straight away.

    I don't think they do, but there is a Daihatsu made workshop manual available in the resources tab on this site.

    Looking for a copen
    Really helpful historic thread on what to look at, so thanks Adam. Am still learning about Copens and hopefully will own a 2nd hand one very soon.
