    Eek interior light not coming on when door opens

    HI all,

    My interior light works fine when you push the buttons.

    But when the doors open its rather dark in there..

    Is there anything simple to check as i`m confused as hell.

    Did a search first but wouldn't find the same issue listed.

    well is it all of your doors it dont come on by? it could be your DDM/PDM that have some wrong coding...

    (mine was like that whn ive changed the PDM/DDM and didnt have them coded correct to the car first)

    The switch is part of the lock mechanism.

    thanks for some ideas, my car has all the same bits since i bought it at 2 months old. I fitted a rear light but theres a chance i may have hit one of the ribbon cables. Stupidest thing ever selotaping them to the roof lining.

    Light never comes on when opening the door now. only reason i fitted the rear light was for my now 5 month old daughter getting her in and out on a dark night. I might try disconnecting the battery for a bit and see if that helps at all. But a bit bored of it not working now.......
