Alarm/internal light problem

    Hi everyone, hope you're all well.
    Looking for some advice on a 12 plate lwb vivaro sportive.
    Basically when I bought it last week the internal light didn't come on when door was opened, but noticed in last couple of days that it won't turn off now when in that setting, as if it thinks a door is opened.

    Problem is it's affecting the alarm, ie it beeps when I lock doors with central locking, manual says that means the sensors inside aren't active when it beeps.

    Garage I bought it from says warranty issue as only 5k on clock, so I put it in today (different garage as was 200+miles away) for 1st major service, they said everything is ok, I explained the problem again to them and they are now saying its probably due to the ply lining going through wiring loom but they don't know yet and it will be chargeable.

    Find that ridiculous as I'm led to believe it was lined by vauxhall dealer anyway from day one but I need to check on that.

    Does anyone have any ideas or know if this is a common fault?

    Any help/advice much appreciated,

    Thanks.

    Jamie

    From what I can tell that ply lining is often done by subcontractors who will tend to just slap in self tappers wherever they think they are needed, so the scenario is potentially valid. If it is that, I would expect the garage to fix the problem at their cost as the work was done on their behalf.

    I would look at all the door close switces/pressure switches. On my van the rubber grommet was damaged and the pressure switch was pushing into the van body and not making conact with the door when closed

    if it's still the same as the older vivaros on the left rear door is there a rubber cap in the bottom corner inside, that is used to push the switch in when the door closes in turn turning off the interior lights
