    interior light stays on, help plz

    hi guys, my interior light has decided to stay on constantly. now ive narrowed it down ( i think) to the o/s/f door pin switch, as the 'key in ignition' charm sounds even with the door shut, ive tested the wires and have power, so i believe it to be the swicht itself and as the n/s one is different i am unable to swap it to test. would this cause the deadlock system (ie the second press of the lock button within 10 seconds of locking) not to work????

    for now ive removed the interior light as it will just drain the battery, any idea how much pin switches are? cheers for your help guys.

    hi mate
    im sure the door switches are just earth that contact when its out and the door is open, so if you take the switch out and isolate the wire there it should solve the problem that way you will know if its definately the switch if the problem persists look elswhere

    If the drivers door switch is faulty is would cause the deadlocks not to work so your problem probably does lie there

    They are negative switching so just unscrew it and see if the light goes out
