We just bought our first Lotus to be used as a daily driver. At night, when we turn on our lights, the light which illuminates the foot-well will not turn off. When we turn off just the headlights, it remains on, the parking lights switch kills it though. I am assuming/hoping that I am just making a simple newb mistake, but I still haven't figured it out. What say you, o great and all-knowing Lotus community?

Are you sure the "light which illuminates the foot-well" is OEM?
I assume that you are talking about an Elige, and they don't have
that light from the factory.
If you bought your car used then the PO probably installed the light, which means it could be wired who knows how...

I think you may be right Mr. C., it looks like it may have been added by the original owner, though I am not quite sure why...

Ah well, looks like I may be cutting and capping a few wires this weekend.

It may become handy at night in some situations.
That's probably why it was added.
Maybe there is a separate switch somewhere which lets you turn off the light independent from the headlights :shrug:
