Hi Guys
I have just joined the club having taken delivery of my 2019 Evoque D180 R-Dynamic SE with privacy glass, black pack, 20" style 5079 wheels a couple of weeks ago. I previously had a Jaguar XE Portfolio in Cherry Black.
I have been reading some of the threads with interest. For example, on the Jaguar, I experienced the same misting when filling with diesel as discussed elsewhere, and never new the cause until now.
I also checked out the posts on the interior lights. My problem is that my load area light will not operate. The interior lights and the puddle lights all come on as expected when unlocking the vehicle, and I have tried resetting them, but the load area stubbornly fails to operate. Has anyone any additional insights before I go back to the dealer and risk making a fool of myself?

First place to star-check the bulb then work backwards.

Thanks guys. I think that I will leave that sort of investigation to the dealer at this stage. I asking in case I had missed something obvious.

Thanks Maffy. I think that I know what you mean. I just checked and when the boot is opened on its own, the interior lights come on in the rest of the vehicle. That would indicate that the switch in the boot is operating as it should. I think that it will be a question for the dealer in due course.

I can't resist ............ :giggle:

How many online forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed.

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently.

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

53 to flame the spell checkers.

41 to correct spelling/grammar flames.

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"...another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp".

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct.

156 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy".

109 to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb group

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum, and lightbulb group about changing light bulbs be stopped.

111 to defend the posting to this group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

306 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique, and what brands are faulty.

27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

14 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's.

3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too".

12 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

19 to quote the "Me too's" to say "Me three".

4 to suggest that posters request the light bulb FAQ.

44 to ask what is a "FAQ".

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

143 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs".

1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again....

When you said you reset them, what did you do?

Hi ernesto
I touched the interior light lens to deactivate the auto function and then reactivated it. As I mentioned above, the other interior lights come on when when I open the boot, but not the boot lights.

There's no other way to switch them off and it's LED so no bulb to replace...if you wanted to, you could pop the light out and see if it's plugged in as there's not much else left that could go wrong
