    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 140 Ecoflex S/S

    Default Interior light keeps coming on.

    On several occassions whilst driving, my interior light comes on for a split second then goes off. Usually happens going over poorly surface roads as the body shell flexes.

    Sometimes, just as I've jumped in the car, the interior light stays on but a good slam of the driver's door usually sorts it but then we're back to the above intermittent problem as above.

    I've greased the stiker catch and door lock mechanism and adjusted the striker so the door closes really tightly. Also no warning light to say that any doors aren't closed properly.

    Question is, what part of the door lock assembly makes the circuit so the light goes out so that I can investigate further?

    Yep. Greased all lock bits that you can see in the door without ripping the door cards out and adjusted all strikers. Did think at one stage that it was the rear n/s door but now, when the light stays on, slamming the drivers door at least puts the light out til I move off. I had a new drivers door lock motor fitted a few months ago but I think it's something to do with how the circuit is made, ie. lock mechanism contacting with striker pin?

    Doesn't the door open light come on the dash? I'm thinking it may be the ignition key barrel at fault if there is no door open light. It is designed so that when the key is removed from the ignition the int. light comes on.
