Help! The driving lights in my 2006 Mini Cooper convertible have started coming on all by themselves with no key in ignition and car parked undisturbed for hours. I can't turn them off! Had to disconnect battery terminal to get them to go off. What is going on? Thank you!

those have the cheapest wiring ever, waay too thin and those wires often short out. First look at the headlight wiring near the headlight bulbs and if they are all getting to be bare metal, you will have to rewire ita ll

Thanks so much. Gee. This doesn't sound good. This morning I reconnected battery terminal and the lights not only came back on, they flickered off and on. Sound like confirmation of your earlier thoughts?
