    Question Glove box/Boot/rear interior lights not working?

    Any ideas why my glove box rear interior lights and boot lights dont work? changed the bulb and tried a different fuse... not worked since i got the car

    Any comon places for the wire to get cut etc? or could the police use that feed to power the blue lights?

    How old is the car?

    I'm sure in 2001 they changed the way the interior light was wired up so that if it's left on they go out to save power and this controled by a power save relay in the fuse board so maybe it's not there at all

    Check for the consumer switch of time delay relay

    I think your right actually only had 2 or 3 relays in the car and thought odd when i went the scrappy and saw every other astra with loads of relays.

    Stocked up on a couple before so might plug some in any idea on the colour of the relay?

    If it's Police Spec, it's likely it was built without those items to allow fitment of operational equipment
